We have an exciting new digital camera. It's driving us crazy as we are having trouble getting the flash to work appropriately, hence the somewhat blown out photos of the classic 1980s era Chanel pearl jewels below. We hope you can see how wonderful this pieces are against all odds! You may be aware that Chanel pearls from the past are so much more beautiful than what one might find at a Chanel boutique today. A former Chanel employee who works in jewelry sales in the 1980s explained that the pearls were made by shaking the glass beads in "pearl dust." She further explained that this is why the Chanel faux pearls looked so real. Mikimoto, watch your back!

The pieces below are all from the 1980s and shockingly all un-worn many with their original hangtags on each piece. We will be posting more 1980s-era Chanel jewelry and handbags in the next weeks...and all are absolutely flawless and deadstock!
