CHANEL Estate Large Twisted Cord Faux Pearl + Gripoix Glass Pin
A fabulous and bold Estate costume pin by the legendary fashion house Chanel! This French-made brooch is generously large in size, and features a twisted "cord" that graduates slightly in size to form a symmetrical yet ornate shape. The entire cord is decorated in a matte yellow gold tone and forms a large open center loop in the middle with two round swirled motifs on either side. A large faux pearl rests at the center of the open loop, below a twisted mass of cord, and exhibits an iridescent creamy white color with a wonderful surface luster. Two gripoix glass teardrop shaped links dangle freely from the base of each swirled motif, one displays a turquoise blue tone atop a black and white background and the other exhibits a vibrant pink tone atop a brown and cream background. The glass beads are held by a twisted cord topper and they add a wonderful swinging movement when worn. The yellow gold matte tone beautifully reflects the light and pairs perfectly next to the pearl and glass beads. Finishing the design is a long bar pin and secure clasp on the back, along with a plaque stamped with the signature Chanel hallmark, "CHANEL" and "MADE IN FRANCE." This bold and statement making piece will provide make a fabulous addition to any fashion forward women's collection!
