      Last year, I happened to drop by a visit in Hong Kong and was enthralled by this novelty ring. I am quite meticulous with my purchases and didn’t intend on spending out of sheer whim. Nevertheless, I went home with sour grapes thinking a piece of glinting metal was the last thing I needed. But my desire somehow never escaped me, it’s like that old consumer’s adage prompting you to buy the ‘thing’ on-the-spot or else you’ll miss it for the rest of your life. So I gave in, then asked the help of a friend who’s based there to buy it for me. The coveted ring arrived by mail. I realized it’s just a fashion ring, as with all of Chanel’s crafty things.

      By principle, I always go for value first then ornamental aspects next.


      For this ring, it was the other way around. I think I’m paying for its novelty design. Similar to buying a trendy pair of shoes, it’s the design that you want to make more personal that’s why you buy it. I do have a pair of Chanel earrings as well, but I don’t wear them often, now that it’s breaking into the populace popularized by celebrities who sloppily display it to the public, it just turns me off. Otherwise, I thought about making it less branded, thankfully this one doesn’t have any typographical logo etched like most of its counterparts. It still has a CC logo on the facet, I’d rather not impose the mark if I were to choose, but overall, it’s just decent.

      And people who knew me and spotted me wearing it also raved ...


      • the ring as if they wished it was their own. The more they gushed about it when they heard it’s Chanel. After a while though, I grew tired wearing the ring and slipped it inside my jewel box. I find the floral-baroque aesthetic of the ring to be relevant to my personal taste since I have a penchant for classic antique objects. While the value of the ring may not equal that of a Ming vase, it’s definitely the craziest ring I’ve owned, kookier than my H.stern gigantic Amethyst ring. The ring is laid with a peach blossom flower - a very oriental design topped with glass Pearls, rather man-made pearls, 7 all of them then a Chanel insignia placed on the side. It’s absolutely fashion, just a haphazard arrangement. I chose the 7
        pearls because I’m superstitious and believe the number is a symbol for prosperity, a fashionable lucky charm perhaps.

        The metal – there’s nothing precious about it; it’s even coated with a faux, quite pigmented gold tone. The ring has a coarse, striated texture and given its built, it’s really heavyweight for a ring. The large angular art-deco facet bites my fingers especially when I have my digits outstretched. The ring also has a metallic smell. This ring was actually part of Chanel’s Pre-fall Shanghai collection, I may not afford a dress from that collection but I’m happy I have this tangible piece of art. I certainly suggest you to browse chanel’s mouthwatering catalogues, the rings and necklaces I can recommend but the earrings - never mind.
