Call me crazy but even though I’m a jewelry designer and I have gobs and gobs of jewelry unworn and samples everywhere and I certainly don’t NEED any more jewelery, I still lust after Chanel jewelry. Every time I go to the boutique I love to see their new pieces. My husband got me this ring for my birthday and I can’t stop wearing it, it’s my favorite thing ever. It’s been posted on my instagram a few times (apologies if you are sick of seeing it! haha)
I’ve been to a couple of vintage Chanel trunk shows and I LOVE looking at the jewelry. Shopbop has a fab section of vintage Chanel and I love seeing their selection.
In my research I’ve found a few authentic re-sellers of vintage Chanel jewelry.
Vintage Five is a seller from Japan but they have an easy to navigate website, free shipping and also a boutique on Malleries. They also have this great page to help you distinguish between the fakes and the real thing. (My caveat: I have not ordered from here personally but just did some research on the web and they appeared to have good reviews and they do take returns)
Yoogi’s Closet, who I mentioned in my Where to Buy: Vintage Chanel Bags post, also has a small section of vintage jewelry. I love that they have the J12 watches as I’d never buy one at full retail but would definitely consider a pre-loved one.
Yoox.com is a great place to buy off season designer items and they also have a small Chanel jewelry section. And lastly, I got confirmation from the girls at the Purse Forum that Vineyard Vintage sells authentic pieces and they have quite an extensive selection so definitely check them out if you have a particular piece you are looking for. They also have a great page to help with authenticating pieces. Great to bookmark on your phone if you ever come across a vintage piece while antique shopping and you’re not sure of the authenticity.
