NEW Coco Collection | Chanel Inspired Timeless Pearls

Inspired by the iconic Chanel brand, Coco is our latest special collection of vibrantly organic freshwater pearl jewellery.

Gabrielle Chanel is one of Claudia's founding inspirations – not just for Chanel’s love of pearls, but for her innovative thinking and simple purpose – both of which sparked a creative light in Claudia.

“I was excited by the idea of taking the pearl from fusty 'conformed dressing' to something vibrant and alive, and full of lustre and possibility; this has given CB jewellery a strong sense of purpose across the years.” Claudia

New Pearl Drop Necklaces

In this beautiful Coco collection you will find our designs such as our Coco Pearl Power Chain Necklace - a simple, lustrous, and generously sized, drop pearl, on a fully adjustable chain.

Featuring an Edison style baroque pearl, this beautifully modern pearl and chain necklace gives you instant, and feminine, pearl power. Designed to be worn at any length it is perfect for layering and will adjust to all necklines. The chunky silver chain offers a modern on-trend style.

Like all our jewellery, the hand-selected AA+ graded freshwater pearl and luxury sterling silver or 18k gold-plate, means this pearl drop necklace can truly be treasured forever.


Pearl Chokers – A Spring, Summer Trend

The iconic Chanel box jacket can often be seen paired with pearl choker necklaces. A throwback to the much-loved 80s and 90s fashion, the box-jacket trend is making a come-back, so it only seemed fitting that our Coco collection featured a timeless pearl choker necklace.

Discover more on how to wear pearls with this spring season’s new fashion trend.

Vibrant and alive, and full of lustre and possibility. Our hand strung Coco Coin Pearl Choker Necklace features a hand selected, organic shaped, freshwater coin pearl. These pearls are treasured for their individual shape and beauty, as well as their call of the beach, and the sun, resembling as they do shells smoothed by the oceans.


The Coco Chanel Story:

An inspiration to all women, Gabrielle Chanel’s start in life was far from charmed. As an orphan she was raised by nuns who taught her to sew – a skill that would become invaluable for her life’s work.

Coco (a nickname she gave to herself) was the birth of an extraordinary character; daring, free, and ahead of her time. Arguably the most influential designer of all time, Coco Chanel revolutionised the way women wore their clothes, with classic wardrobe staples, which even today people can style in a way that suits them.

A wardrobe freed from constraints and superfluity, tweaked with masculine accents, created a visionary allure that has become timeless and yet wildly modern. Pearls casually paired with iconic perfumes have created a signature style. That of a pioneer whose lifestyle and multiple facets forged the values of the House she founded, and who remains an inspiration for all women.

One of her famous quotes ‘you were born an original, don't become a copy’, rings true in our ethos here at Claudia Bradby – ‘pearls as unique as you’.

Gabrielle Chanel was also quoted saying ‘Always dress to make yourself feel young – this means being free and easy and unpretentious in your clothes. You have to breathe and move and sit without being conscious of what you’ve got on.’

“Initially I took this to mean you need to ‘look’ young,” says Claudia.

“But I had misread the ‘feel’ young. I will hold on to this quote, which chimes with my hatred of being ‘dressed up’ and uncomfortable in myself. I aim for all my own pearl designs to update how you feel when you wear them, a bit closer to who you want to be, but never to be overpowering, just embellishing your spirit.”
