After the 2015 collection, here is a new series of jewels presented at the haute couture in Paris. That Chanel’s lion was not destined to become extinct, on the other hand, and was also written in the stars: Coco Chanel considered it a lucky charm and she was also rather superstitious. She considered the astrological sign of the lion as a good luck charm. Superstition aside, the new collection, which is called L’Esprit du Lion, is composed of 53 pieces. Of course, everyone have a lion’s head here or there. Diamonds and white or yellow gold, are the basic elements of the high jewelery signed Chanel. But there are also colored stones like beryl, sapphires, topaz. One of the necklaces, for example, is made up of an 18-karat gold lion, placed on top of a large detachable 30-carat orange topaz and 82 pink sapphires. In short, a collection with a beauty that roars. Giulia Netrese
