"Difference between savage and civilized man: one is painted, the other gilded" - Mark Twain

Vintage Chanel jewelry is generally not known for its subtlety...I say this as the somewhat dubious owner of a pair of 4" long gilded and pearl bedecked Baroque cherub earrings. If they were brooches, which I think I may have to convert them into, I could see wearing them...but earrings that are bigger than your actual ears are a hard sell, for me at least.

Which is why I was (pleasantly) surprised to see this relatively subdued bracelet from the late 90's...alright, so it's technically not "vintage"...but is is rather lovely, don't you think?
