The Queen of Costume Jewellery Immortalised in a New Film
It seems we are being spoilt with fashion films at the moment – first Baz Luhrman confirmed that the Great Gatsby was being shown at Cannes and now a new film about Coco Chanel is set to be made starring Kiera Knightley as the fashion designer.
Coco Chanel believed that every woman should have beautiful jewellery regardless of their income. She was never seen without stacks of gorgeous pearls and loved a bit of fake bling. In fact she thought that women should have lots of costume jewellery rather than a few expensive pieces so that every outfit could be accessorised to look fab - just one reason while we love Coco Chanel.

She loved pearls and was hardly ever seen with seen without strings of pearls around her neck while she was also a bit of a fan of brightly colored “fruit salad glass” stones, which was aimed to imitate precious stones, on necklaces and earrings for women. She was also a big fan of gold chains (just think of the handle of the famous quilted bags). Another key motif is the famous Chanel bow which was a trademark in her designs and also in her jewellery. So simple bow shapes were used on necklaces, ring and earrings for women (http://www.mizellie.co.uk/)
