5) Chanel 2016 Ladies Diamond Watches : Mademoiselle Prive Coromandel Glyptic
Halo of diamond love. What’s new this year is that Chanel has added some more pretty and delicate artwork on the face of it’s dial. Chanel maisons have used the glyptic, which is an ancient Egyptian jewellery technique. It is the art of sculpting semi-precious gemstones both in intaglio and relief. In the Mademoiselle Privé 2016 collection, the glyptic gives the watch dials inspired by these renowned Coromandel screens, a unique depth and realism. In coral, turquoise, cornaline and lapis lazuli, the birds of the glyptic appear as though ready to take flight. Represented in an onyx miniature, they alight on fine branches in sculpted gold. Each dial is unique and requires more than a hundred hours to produce.
