This one is off the scale enormous or as Chanel referred to in it in 1990... 'gigantic!' It's near impossible to capture the importance and beauty of this original Vintage Chanel Gold Rope Necklace in an image. The original Chanel images from the Runway Spring Summer 1990 Collection and also the fabulous shot of the Head of Chanel Costume Jewellery at the time, Victoire de Castellane in the front row, also wearing several pieces from the new collection, help to bring the glory of this piece and the vibrance of the 1990s to life. The bold gold rope design was Chanel's celebration of the new decade. Chanel introduced the bold gold rope in place they said of the 1980s Chanel Chains. Time for something bolder, bigger, better! This Vintage Chanel Gold Rope Necklace is a weighty, very substantial piece, with gigantic twisted rope style links culminating in a large hook style fastener. The beauty of the hook fastening is you can hook the necklace at any point and if you wish wear it trailing down. It would also be possible to wear this incredible piece as a belt. This Chanel rope necklace is constructed of hollow sections of 18ct gold plated metal. The gold plating and finish on this piece is phenomenal quality - more like a sheet of high carat gold and unlikely to ever wear away. This Vintage Chanel necklace measures approx. 89cm by 4cm wide and is in very good vintage condition. Signed Chanel on the cartouche as shown in the images. Please take particular note of the measurements and also the significant weight if you are considering this piece - if we can assist when considering this piece, please contact us. It is without doubt the largest, most impressive piece of Vintage Chanel to grace the collection to date. Pure 1990s Chanel Heaven with Karl Lagerfeld and Victoire de Castellane at the helm. This piece hails from a spectacular period for the House of Chanel and one that is likely unrivalled.

Vintage and antique costume jewellery is a luxury traditionally crafted product and it needs special care to preserve its exceptional character. Below please find some advice on care and simple steps you can take:
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.
Items are typically most suited to occasional rather than constant wear.
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 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.
