Chanel Celebrates N°5 Perfume 100th Anniversary With A High Jewelry Diamond Necklace

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the iconic N°5 perfume, Patrice Leguéreau, Director of the CHANEL Fine Jewelry Creation Studio, has imagined the “Collection N°5”, the first High Jewelry collection ever to be dedicated to a perfume.

This majestic collection showcases all the facets of a perfume, interpreting the eternal mystery of the N°5 perfume with virtuosity. From the bottle to the sillage, one hundred and twenty-three extraordinary pieces express the different facets of the perfume.

 

N5 Perfume - Chanel - 100th Anniversary

 

In 1921, the first "perfume for women with the scent of a woman" composed by Ernest Beaux and Gabrielle Chanel made a commotion. With the absolute modernity of the fragrance, the purity of the bottle and the mystery of the name, the N°5 perfume was simply a revolution. In 1932, Mademoiselle shattered the codes of French High Jewelry with her one and only collection in platinum and diamonds. These "Bijoux de Diamants" introduced new ways of wearing and took jewelry into another realm… that of allure.

In 2021, Patrice Leguéreau decided to bring these two domains together with the “Collection N°5”. “Gabrielle Chanel approached these two universes with the same visionary values, focusing on audacity and the quest for excellence. I wanted to rediscover that creative gesture with this collection, which has been conceived like a journey through the meanderings of the N°5 perfume’s soul, from the architecture of the bottle to the olfactive explosion of the fragrance.”

The most coveted piece of this precious collection is the extraordinary 55.55 necklace that expresses all the codes of the fragrance which radiate through an exceptional gemstone, a 55.55-carat custom-cut diamond. “This is an unprecedented approach” observes Patrice Leguéreau. “We started with a rough diamond that we had cut, not to make the biggest stone possible, but to obtain a perfect octagonal diamond weighing 55.55 carats.” The harmonious shape, in an emerald cut, the symbolic weight of 55.55 carats, the D Flawless quality of this stone and the 18-carat white gold bezel set with 104 round diamonds and 42 baguette diamonds testify to CHANEL's perfectionism and exceptional levels of creation and technical mastery.

If you’re dreaming of getting your hands on this majestic piece, we hate to shatter your dream, but money cannot buy this stunning necklace. CHANEL has indeed chosen to keep the necklace 55.55 in its Patrimoine. Thus, this extraordinary piece will forever be a part of the history of CHANEL's High Jewelry and the symbol of the unbreakable ties that unite place Vendôme with the N°5 perfume.
