Today I went to a special exhibition of Verdura jewels, it’s only opened for four more days. It’s amazing how much energy you get after viewing pieces like the Coco Chanel cuffs which she wore for 50 years and I can actually see the scratches on them! The cuffs originally began as brooches, which Chanel pinned to her jersey dresses and suits, and most famously was the pair of wide enamel cuffs that became some of the most celebrated jewels of the twentieth century.
Ruby, Diamond, Gold and platinum “Sash Heart” brooch commissioned by actor Tyrone Power for his wife Abnabella, for Christmas 1941.
We can see on the photo that she is wearing the heart)
Also I never knew that Coco Chanel was the first to start wearing yellow gold!
A lot of the most beautiful pieces have been gathered at Verdura exhibition. So, if you are in NYC by chance then you have this great opportunity to visit it) xoxo
