This Chanel pendant was once a pair of earrings I wore to my Miss Sophomore parade ( eons ago). This was given to me by an Aunt when I was a child and I hoarded it to myself because I saw the Chanel ads in the pages of Vogue. Sadly, due to numerous renovations and carelessness, the other pair was gone and this become detached. I strung a gold chain into it and voila! A new life for a vintage Chanel earring. It has a quilted raised background like the ones used in Chanel bags and the interlocking C's. It's quite heavy, in fact, I wonder how I managed to wear this during a parade and program as earrings.
