You probably know all about the bottle even if you’re unsure as to what the contents smell like. Chanel’s uber iconic perfume known as the Chanel No. 5 is shaped like an aerial view of the Place Vendôme and its glassware is a reminder of the stunning views from within the Grand Palais. What you probably lost track of is that the fragrance turns 100 in 2021 (we know, time flies). Chanel on its part is kickstarting the tributes in epic proportions. Leading the charge is a diamond necklace that applies the favoured Coco Chanel number into its make. Weighing in at 55.55 carats is a D flawless central diamond shaped just like the famous real estate that the bottle was inspired by. The profoundness of this white gold masterpiece doesn’t just stop at the central stone as Chanel has customised several parts of the necklace to form an abstract silhouette of the Chanel No. 5 bottle including the stopper. At the base of the necklace are a series of pear-shaped diamonds that imagines the bottle being taken out from a pool of water with droplets washing off its pristine exterior. As for the price of this stunner, let’s just say we know it will cost more than your Chanel No. 5 supply for the next 100 years.
