Vintage Chanel CC Logo Earrings Gold Matelasse 1980s


In stock

A superb pair of Vintage Chanel Logo Earrings Matelassé style, dating at least to the early 1980s and possibly slightly earlier. Featuring the iconic interlocked double Cs in 18ct gold plated metal adorned with the equally iconic matelassé repeating rhombus pattern. The matelassé pattern has become synonymous with Chanel products ever since it was used for the first time during the conception of Coco's emblematic handbag, the 2.55. It’s Chanel that deserves the praise, since Gabrielle made it one of the codes for her brand and a now timeless stamp on the female wardrobe. Some say that this quilting method of stitched rhombuses was inspired by the jockeys' jackets at the racetrack and other sources mention the horses’ saddle cloths possibly played a part. One theory is the pattern was a reference to the stained glass windows in the abbey where Gabrielle Chanel was raised. None of these theories have been proven and it seems only Mademoiselle Coco Chanel could tell us the true inspiration. Anyway, it's fun and intriguing to muse a while. These fabulous earrings are clip on, measuring approx. 3cm wide and in very good vintage condition. The earrings are marked with the authenticity stamp on the reverse. A fabulous pair of Vintage Chanel Logo Earrings Matelassé style that are the perfect size for day or evening. Stunning! Should you choose to buy from us, we commit to the item being as described. Your vintage costume jewellery will arrive beautifully packaged and presented, helping to preserve your one of a kind piece. Please take a read through our information below and of course, don't hesitate to contact us should you require further assistance.

Love From Jennifer

A love for researching and writing about each unique jewel and a love for bringing you the best collection and one of a kind experience possible.

Sitting at the heart of Jennifer Gibson Jewellery I aim to offer you a wonderful and personal experience to land your perfect vintage jewel. Your perfect jewel will be especially personal to you but at very least it must excite you and adorn your personal style and celebrate the very best design and craftsmanship. By choosing to rewear jewels from the last century we naturally make a small contribution to sustainable fashion. Quite simply our jewels are jewels that won’t cost our earth. Have fun perusing our collection and pinpointing your perfect vintage jewel !

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.
