Coveting your next big Chanel purchase? Perhaps it is this 55.55 carat flawless emerald cut gem? Wow, is the only appropriate word.
No need to worry about it being too big for your finger. This one is part of a necklace designed to reflect the features of the Chanel No 5 perfume bottle. Besides the 55.55 carat stone, more than 700 other diamonds are included in this piece.
And if you’re wondering what it takes to get a 55.55 carat flawless stone, just look at where it began. A large rock.
To see how the actual cutting and shaping was done, check out Chanel’s video.
Oh, and, at least for now, this spectacular one-off piece is not for sale. It will rest at Chanel’s heritage location in Paris.
