Coco Chanel photographed by Man Ray (c. 1935)

Chanel needs no introduction. Single-handedly responsible for the look of the modern woman, Chanel is now more than a label, it's the centre of a fashion cult. Its devotees are always on the lookout for anything vintage Chanel, especially with the iconic interlocking 'CC' logo, which the fashion house trademarked in 1925. The logo soon took the form of purse locks, buttons, brooches, pendants and earrings.

We recently acquired five gorgeous pairs of Chanel vintage earrings: the simple gold and enamel CC earrings; the round, shiny gold button CC earrings (there were matching buttons produced); the "31 Rue Cambon" (the Parisian address of the Chanel atelier) gold CC earrings circa 1980s; gold wheat ear CC earrings (wheat ear pattern is a favourite of Karl Lagerfeld), also circa 1980s; and round gold earrings with a crystal centre and 'Chanel' emboss.

Coco Chanel herself always wore round clip-on earrings (most women didn't have pierced ears back then) along with her trademark pearls. Her personal style is the foundation of the brand and the key for timeless, iconic style. She best said it herself: “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”
