Named after a popular style of dress worn by Russian women, the Sarafane necklace and earrings are inspired by the Russian embroidery that Mademoiselle incorporated into her collections. The necklace’s camellia motif is crafted from diamonds and pearls and centered around a stunning 10.18-carat round-cut diamond that’s colorless and internally flawless.
The lacquered Folklore earrings are an interpretation of colorful, traditional Russian embroideries. They are reimagined in daring red, Mademoiselle’s favorite color, and punctuated with tsavorite and orange garnets, blue and pink sapphires, diamonds and pearls.
The Aigle Protecteur necklace pays tribute to Mademoiselle’s vision of Russian Paris. Crafted in platinum and diamonds, the two-headed eagle keeps watch over the rare shield-cut diamonds and sparkling rows of briolette-cut diamonds.
The Aigle Cambon cuffs are rich with Chanel iconography. Cuffs were a favorite jewelry style of Gabrielle Chanel, who often wore one cuff on each wrist. The two-headed eagle motif is inspired by the same eagle that’s perched aloft the mirror in Mademoiselle’s Rue Cambon apartment. The central stones mimic the octagonal shape of the mirror, as well as Mademoiselle’s beloved Place Vendôme.
