I like this necklace, it's a special edition made for the new Las Vegas store. All of thier necklaces are basically the same, but I still like the cute charms.



I love these pearls, so chic.



I really want this Chanel dogtag...

Nice necklace, Spike413!

I quite like some of Chanel's costume jewelry...usually the quieter pieces.

I'd love to have one of these camellia bracelets from the s/s 05 HC collection:





and this belt is very sweet:

I used to think so too but lately have started to really like some of the collections...I also like some of the more whimsical items like this vintage necklace:

I knew a fantastic Polish jeweller who struggled to sell cutting-edge fine jewellery for Chanel's kind of prices. It's all a bit sickening...

i think it looks SO good with navy, or a more classy outfit.

I bought it at Chanel on Sloane St. For around 150.
Thanks for the info I really want it too, but I wont because I cant afford 150 for a brooch even if it is Chanel. We seem to have the same taste

The chains and the little coin-y things and the fake pearls and the flowers. It's so Dyansty-gone-twee. Very not for me, and especially not at $200-1000 a piece. Urgh!
You are sooo right, because the type you describe are the real clients of Chanel costume jewellery, of course. However, on 16 year old waifs, the jewellery looks striking, but no young woman would ever ever dream of wearing such jewellery.

Oh I loved those hair chains, the way they moved was so fabulous....I'm sad to hear they shortened them for retail though.

Also love these eagle brooches from s/s 01.

I think Chanel clientel has changed more then you know it in the last 5 years. I have almost never stepped into a boutique or their area at Neiman Marcus and seen people over 40 there these days. There are lots of ladies in their 20's-30s with the purses. I do admit though, most of their conservative tots are carried by 35+. I never see the 2.55 bag around.

I never see anyone with the jewlery, but I know that is going to change. It is incredibly playful and fun. The charms bracelets and necklaces would look silly on an older women. The pearls are often to over the top and daring for anyone more mature to wear, as well as to logo-ish.

I think in the 70's-90's Chanel used to much gold and looked pretty tacky. Old women would buy that stuff up. I think the vintage pieces can be played up and used again in a strange couture curious fashionista way.
