CHANEL COCO PEARL & STRASS VINTAGE PIN
Every once in a while a vintage piece comes along that takes my breath away... This is one of those pieces. Just into its fourth decade, this pin could walk the runway today and not look out of place. Two CC's are filled with facet cut crystals and creamy faux pearls take the place of O's ~ so you've got a COCO & a CC logo, depending on which way you look at it. The C's and the pearls sit on a gold plated bar that reminds me of a bow. The ends taper down and there are 5 scattered crystals set center on the bar. One side has 3 and one side has 2. The side with two has 3 tiny raised studs and there is one that follows the side with the 3. Last but not least, lets pay mind to the scalloped edges of the C's... Oh, the dreamy details... It does appear, that at some point, there was a tiny repair that is center front but unnoticeable unless pointed out. Fabulous as a traditional pin of course, but this is one I'd like to see styled as a hair pin. Measures 2&1/4" long and just over 1/2" in height.
Very good vintage condition
