Nothing inspired iconic French designer Coco Chanel more than the beauty of the camellia flower.
The billowing circular blossom can be found repeatedly on Chanel fashion and jewelry over the years. Chanel had them made into silk flowers and pinned them on blouses or hats, turning the flower into an "enduring leitmotif of her style." This wonderful ring comes from Chanel's now-retired Profil de Camellia collection. Crafted in 18K white gold, the band's outer rim is not round but follows the outline of a camellia blossom. The front features two rounded sections that are filled in with a total of 24 pavé-set sparkling diamonds, all VS clarity, G colour. The diamonds are excellent quality, very glittery and beautifully set. Excellent craftsmanship all around!
Ring size is 6&3/4. Weight: 5.7 grams. The ring measures 5.5 mm wide in the front and tapers to 4 mm at the back.
Excellent condition. No damage, just light surface scratching, No missing stones. The ring is engraved with the Chanel name on the side of the ring, and "18K" on the inside of the shank. It also bears the French Assay Office eagle stamp for 18K gold on the outside of the shank at the back. As well, there is a company logo hallmark (entwined C's") with "V1, or A1." I do know that Chanel marks its jewelry according to season: "A" for example, stands for fall, and "V" for continuous line. The "1" is for the year it was made, so 2001.
