These 1991s Chanel earrings are in impeccable vintage condition and designed by Victoire de Castallane. They feature a raised square etched design and inset is a purple gripoix or hand poured glass stone. Each earring measures 2.5 cm in diameter and early Chanel jewellery was always 24ct gold-plated. The designers signature is located below the clip fastenings on both pieces with season '25' which corresponds to 1986 as the year of manufacture. A delicious combination of kitsch and classic Gripoix for Chanel design, these are a wonderful addition to any collection and have seen little use in their lifetime. They featured in the Spring/Summer 1991 collection, and are shown in a green version on Linda Evangelista (pictured). The clip-on earrings are not heavy and I have had Chanel put new comfort backings on for the lucky new owner.
