Drawing inspiration from Gabrielle Chanel’s love for lions and the fact that she was born under the Leo star, Chanel paid tribute to this majestic creature by placing it on a sumptuous sautoir necklace.
Considered as a new icon of High Jewellery at Chanel, the lion in rutile quartz tops a diamond comet featuring an exceptional 32-carat emerald cut diamond.
Constellation du Lion necklace in 18-karat white and yellow gold set with 159 baguette-cut diamonds weights in at 34.6 carats.
The lion is a symbol of strength and wisdom and is the animal that best corresponds to Mademoiselle Chanel’s character and personality, “I’m a bee, that’s part of my sign, the Lion and sun. Women who share this star sign are hard working, courageous, loyal and undaunting. This is my character. I’m a bee born under the sign of Leo.”
