Chanel’s No.5 Celebrates 100th Anniversary with 55.55-Carat Diamond Necklace
Chanel’s iconic No.5 perfume, created 100 years ago in 1921 by Ernest Beaux and Gabrielle Chanel, is getting a blingy gesture: According to IDEX Online, the best-selling perfume in the world has been immortalized in a diamond necklace weighing 55.55-carats.
The D-color flawless emerald cut, octagonal diamond was cut in the shape of the No.5 bottle. The main diamond, crafted into a necklace, is “surrounded by 104 round diamonds and 42 baguettes”.
According to WWD, which first reported the story, “the necklace re-creates the profile of the perfume bottle stopper and the bottle’s shape, before spilling into a cascade of pear-shaped diamonds”. The necklace will be displayed in Paris, and will not be put up for sale.
