For the better part of a century, the Chanel Jewelry Creation Studio has created a number of unique and modern pieces, including the Coco's only "Bijoux de Diamants” High Jewelry collection. In addition, the Chanel Watchmaking Creation Studio is one of the foremost authorities on Haute Horlogerie. There, watches are designed with practicality, style, and craftsmanship.
In 1921, Coco created Chanel No.5, a scent that remains a leading force in the perfume industry almost 100 years later. Her first makeup line launched 1924, followed by the introduction of skincare products in 1927. Throughout the brand's history, Chanel Beauty has upheld high standards to meet the needs of the same customer who shops the company's fashion and jewelry lines.
