Hi Ladies, I am so excited, I just got my second strand of Chanel pearls....the Fleur De Strass with the crystal Camelia ! I bought my first strand of the Fleur De Strass at that opening of the remodeled Chanel in Beverly Hills, and from there it was pure love. So, when I saw the same style with this beautiful Camelia on it in crystals...I was smitten. I found it at the NM in Beverly Hills...and got double points !! Both strands look great with the CC earrings I got a week or so back. The pictures aren't great - the flash gives the pearls a strange look, but they are so beautiful in real life. I tried to show that the flower is very dimensional in appearance. On the back of the flower is a smooth surface with the CC and the crystal points poke through the setting holes. Unlike the original Fleur De Strass this one has one CC that is much larger and than other cc's. Gosh, I am sooo addicted, but hey, it is a beautiful addiction...hehehe.
