One of the most beautiful examples of CHANEL Gripoix Jewellery from the 1970s. Costume jewellery doesn't get much loftier in terms of style, class, history and understated elegance, than CHANEL Gripoix Pieces; especially true with vintage examples in amazing condition.
Maison Gripoix is perhaps most famed for their partnership with the House of CHANEL. This long and illustrious partnership led to the creation of incredible pieces of CHANEL Jewellery featuring Gripoix's Pâte de verre or poured glass and this is one such piece. The incredible Pâte de verre that creates the emerald coloured petals of the flowers in the earrings is outstanding and totally mesmerising. The Gripoix petals are edged with individually prong set crystal rhinestones and completed with a very pretty central rhinestone flower. The top of the earring alone would have been incredible but it doesn't end there. The earrings are finished by Coco Chanel's quintessential pearl drop. The detail in this pair of earrings is just beautiful - even the crown of the pearl, where it joins the flower, has been adorned with a tiny crystal set ring. No aspect of detail left to chance with this amazing pair of earrings; as you'd expect in a piece of CHANEL Gripoix Jewellery, as incredible as this one.
The earrings are clip on and made from high quality, high carat, gold plated metal, typical in the construct of CHANEL's costume jewellery products.
These Chanel Gripoix clip back earrings are in excellent condition for nearing 50 years old. Often the Gripoix Poured Glass has cracked or chipped due to the material being delicate in nature however these are perfect. The Pearls are also in excellent condition - without the expected scratches and knocks acquired over many decades. The earrings measure just shy of a substantial 5.5cm long and 3.5cm wide - so perfect for day and evening wear.
Stamped clearly on the back 'CHANEL Made in France' along with the CC Logo. This particular CHANEL marking and plate style dates these earrings to the 1970s.
A perfect investment and piece of fashion history that will always exude total iconic elegance, style and class.

Aftercare: Vintage jewellery is extremely delicate and requires special care and attention. Please be aware that vintage jewellery may contain lead or nickel. To preserve its beauty and condition, it is important to keep your item boxed and protected from other jewellery when not being worn and away from liquids including perfume and hairspray. Items are typically most suited to occasional rather than constant wear.
Your order will include our care card suggesting ways to maintain the condition of your jewellery.
We cannot be held liable for any damages incurred after the receipt of products.
Additional Care Tips:
Avoid contact with liquids or humidity including sprays such as water, perfume or hairspray and creams. Exposing jewellery to wet or damp could harm the metal and reduce the life of the plating, as well as cause discolouration and/or loss of stones. Remove jewellery before washing hands, swimming etc.
Store your jewellery in the original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratches.
Add your jewellery last when dressing and remove before undressing. Avoid sleeping in your jewellery.
Avoid hard contact (i.e. dropping or knocking against objects) that can cause scratches or chips.
We are always happy to advise on the care specifics of a particular piece you may be considering.
