"Eloise" Antique Chanel Button Ring
Can you believe that Venice played a roll in this beautiful button being made?
These buttons were the feature on the rear pocket of the first fashion house's trousers for women. During a trip to Venice, Coco Chanel found it impossible to gracefully get in and out of gondolas whilst wearing a dress or skirt. She watched men do this with ease and decided it was time to design ladies trousers. That was in the 1920's, after the end of WW1, when fashion houses were trying to bring colour and life back into haute couture fashion.
So being the 1920's, makes this button an antique Chanel piece. Now that's incredible.
I have set the button in a simple bezel set, but I've added little 9ct yellow gold balls around the outer edges to enhance the gold lettering on the button itself. Apart from the added gold accents, this ring is hand crafted in solid sterling silver. The band has a delicate, feminine embossed pattern.
As this is a relatively smaller ring, I personally think it will make a wonderful pinky/little finger ring. Wearing statement pinky rings is totally in vogue right now too.
Classic antique Chanel on your finger, you really can't go wrong.

Your jewellery journey begins with a hand crafted piece of Porsha Bella wearable history.
*Please note, the buttons used in all of my creations are second hand, antique or vintage, therefore they will show signs of their previous lives. Some scratches, tiny dents, some enamel wear and even tarnishing. I cannot guarantee the quality or longevity of these buttons. In some cases there can be colour variations, and plating lift during the polishing process, this is unavoidable. I'm unable to refund or replace buttons that break or crack. Although I do put every button through rigorous testing to do my best to ensure their longevity.
Unlike costume jewellery, my jewellery is professionally hand crafted using traditional Goldsmith techniques and genuine, solid precious metals, so therefore you can wear your Porsha Bella pieces whilst swimming, showering and washing. These activities shouldn't damage or discolour the precious metals. I never take my jewellery off. However, you may need to polish your jewellery a little more frequently if you want that shiny, brand new look. If you treat your Porsha Bella creation, like the treasure of history it is, you should have an heirloom piece that will stand the test of time. If you have any concerns about how to care for this piece, then please reach out to me and I can help you with tips on getting a long and happy wear life out of it.
*Designer buttons have no affiliation with the brand or fashion house of their origin. I do my best to ensure all designer buttons are genuine and from a reputable source. Porsha Bella designer button creations are not sold on behalf of or in conjunction with the brand. The designer buttons are second hand, vintage or antique, with all rights removed and protected by the second hand market.
