Chanel Diamond Video: The 1932 Bijoux de Diamants Collection

Like a Diamond in the Sky: Chanel's New Video Is Mesmerizing

Gabrielle Chanel may be known for pearls, but there was once another lustrous gem in her life. This just-released video tells the story of how in 1932 Chanel created her first and only collection devoted entirely to diamonds. By creating settings that eliminated the need for clasps and by mounting the stones almost invisibly in an array of asterisk and shooting-star shapes, Chanel paved the way for a whole new style of fine jewelry. "I wanted to shower women in constellations," the designer explained.

Watch as the story of Bijoux de Diamants is told through a captivating collage, animation, and archival footage. Like with the most glittering of jewels, you won't be able to look away.
