The history of Chanel Engagement Rings begins in 1910. The House of Chanel, more commonly known as Chanel, is a Parisian fashion house in France founded by Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel. According to Forbes, the privately held House of Chanel is jointly owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gerard Wertheimer who are the grandsons of the early Chanel partner Pierre Wertheimer. Chanel premiered a fabulous exhibition of fine jewelry in 1932 dedicated to the diamond, featuring designs which became the talk of the town for their simplicity and originality. Several of the pieces, including the ‘Comet’ and ‘Fountain’ necklaces were re-introduced by Chanel in 1993.
Chanel engagement rings history continued in 1924. That year also greeted the first Chanel costume jewelry collection that Harper’s Bazzar greeted as “one of the most revolutionary designs of our time. Founded in 1910, the small shop selling ladies headwear had moved to the upmarket Rue Cambon within a year. The house became especially famous with the elegant little black dress and its signature Chanel No. 5 fragrance – so called because she was given a set of five samples by the perfumeur Ernest Beaux. She had instructed him to create a fragarance that should be “All about scent and nothing about the bottle.” Out of the five scents samples, she preferred No. 5. “It will bring me luck,” she declared. Ernext Beaux also created four other perfumes for Chanel; the are the little known Bois d’Illes, No. 22, Cuir de Russie, and Gardenie. However, Gardenie has recently been re-released by the House in 2005 with international acclaim, a scent that fuses jasmine with musks.
‘High Jewelry’ was founded in November 1932. Chanel debuted ‘Bijoux de Diamants’ at her Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris mansion. In 2012, the company created a special collection to celebrate Diamants’ 80th anniversary. Current collections include High Jewelry, Camelia, Comete, Baroque, 1932, Ultra, Bridal and Jewelry Watches.
