On Monday, Chanel Joaillerie gave a dazzling taste of bigger things to come at a July presentation that will honor the 80th anniversary of Coco Chanel’s 1932 Bijoux de Diamants collection. The house previewed nine new star- and comet-themed creations, including such knockouts as an open necklace, its loose cascade of diamond-encrusted chains punctuated by a large diamond-star brooch, giving a shooting star effect. (The latter can be positioned on the shoulder or chest.) A dazzling 3-D Celeste brooch had its own precious solar system: Orbiting around a central whopper — a 79-carat gray-blue Australian Baroque cultured pearl — are oval-shaped bands pavéd with diamonds connected by a network of what look like tiny falling stars, along with mini pearls strung on chains, like the Milky Way galaxy. A vintage star brooch was also on display, believed to be the sole remaining piece from the original collection.
