It’s hard to believe that Chanel’s Coco Crush fine jewellery collection celebrates its 5th anniversary this year, one dedicated to the matelassé, the quilted pattern that’s also a signature code of the French luxury house. What started out as a simple selection of rings (and a chunky quilted cuff) in 2015 has now expanded to include an entire assortment of fine jewellery pieces available in Beige Gold, White Gold and Yellow Gold, several of which even come decked with dazzling diamonds. Brand new pieces are added to the collection every year in April, and it’s no different for 2019, with three new designs that will be shared in detail below.
Starting with the Quilted Motif Two-Finger Ring (SGD9350), a unique design that’s never been done before at Chanel. Coming in a combination of white and yellow gold, the ring is finished with 18 diamonds and can be worn through 2 fingers (hence the name) so it looks as though you’re wearing two Coco Crush rings on your hand. You can also wear it in one of two ways, choosing between the white gold or yellow gold curved square (the diamond-shaped detailing) facing upwards, giving you two different looks with a single piece of jewellery.
No ear piercings? Fret not, as the Quilted Motif Earrings (SGD4150) come without any clasps, meant to be worn by inserting the open hoops at the top of the ear and letting it slide down so it sits nicely on the earlobe. Again, this is another first for Chanel, a brand-new style that the innovative jewellery team have conceptualised specially for 2019. Wear the earrings individually or stack them side by side for a cool edgy effect, the choice is all yours.
The third design is an all-new rendition of the Quilted Motif Bangle, this time coming in a slip-on style that makes for easy wearing by sliding the open faced bracelet effortlessly through your wrist. The bracelets come in either Beige Gold (an exclusive alloy to Chanel), White Gold or Yellow Gold, in sizes ranging from XS to L that’s perfect for him or for her. Prices start from SGD6200 for the Quilted Motif Bangle in 18K yellow gold, going up to SGD7950 for the Quilted Motif Bangle in 18K white gold that’s finished with diamonds.
The underlying factor among all three designs lies in their ability to be worn in different ways. You can wear them individually and let each stand out on its own, or even stack and layer different pieces for a more-is-more look. Each piece also features a distinctive curved square (diamond-shaped) detailing, one that sets it apart from the current pieces in the existing Coco Crush lineup. Excited? Well, you should be, as the 2019 designs are now available at Chanel’s Fine Jewellery Boutique located within Takashimaya Shopping Centre in Singapore.
