'Les Intemporels' jewelry line honors Gabrielle Chanel's favorite symbols

Chanel has presented its latest fine jewelry collection, which celebrates four symbols that founder Gabrielle Chanel held dear throughout her life.

A number of these symbols, seen almost as good luck charms, have already inspired separate jewelry collections from the French luxury brand. This time, Chanel chose to introduce a single collection highlighting all of them, each of which is related in its own way to the life of Gabrielle Chanel.

The lion (Lion), the comet (Comète), the ribbon (Ruban) and of course the camelia (Camélia) are all honored in exceptional jewelry items adorned with diamonds of various sizes, cultured pearls and/or sapphires.

Four items honor the Lion: a necklace and three rings, each adorned with white or black brilliant-cut diamonds. The Comète line also includes four pieces -- a bracelet, a necklace, a pair of earrings and a watch -- combining diamonds and cultured Japanese pearls.

In the Ruban line are 13 prestigious couture jewelry pieces dedicated to the symbol of the ribbon, including necklaces, brooches, watches, earrings and other items. Finally, there are five items in the Camélia line, each featuring the Chanel founder's favorite blossom.
