A flower by any other name wouldn’t dare outshine Chanel’s Bouton de Camélia

The greatest love stories have enduring power, and some of Gabrielle Chanel's included longtime paramour Boy Capel, a stylish partiality to beige, her fondness for wheat, and an adoration for the camellia flower. A bloom incorporated into her fashion house that has inspired many a Chanel creation, the maison launches a new fine jewellery collection with this floral, known as the Bouton de Camélia.

Naturally geometric with a lush fullness, the elegant contours of the camellia is reinterpreted with a striking design that captures a majestic femininity set with 18K white gold and fully paved diamonds — a precious stone that's another favourite of Mademoiselle Coco. Unfurled in lavish, glittering petals with a complete parure consisting of necklaces, earrings and rings, the Bouton de Camélia collection casts a radiant enchantment that'll perfectly complement the LBD number you've got stashed away.

The Bouton de Camélia collection is available at the Chanel Fine Jewellery boutique from 15 January.
