The 55.55-carat diamond cut to honor N°5’s one hundred years of celebrity is wrapped in a made-to-measure bezel of baguette diamonds that, when viewed in profile, reproduces the proportions of the stopper of the N°5 perfume bottle.
The rough diamond sourced for the N°5 Collection is cut to 55.55 carats, a weight defined by the creative intention of the design, and not the convention which prizes the largest weight above all. This is the ethos of CHANEL: an idea holds the greatest value.
Patrice Leguéreau, Director of the Fine Jewelry Creation Studio, dreamed of an exceptional stone to adorn a necklace inspired by the N°5 perfume bottle—a D flawless Type IIa diamond cut to 55.55 carats by a demanding technical process.
The masterpiece of the N°5 Collection is a necklace inspired by the fragrance bottle. The design features a D Flawless diamond cut by great technical feat into a single stone of 55.55 carats with the shape and proportions of the perfume’s stopper.
