Medallion Tote - medallion falling off?


Bag Lovah

I just purchased the medallion tote a few weeks ago and haven't had any problems.
Not to sure if it does still fall off but I would like that if it does, you can take it to Chanel to be fixed.


clutch ho!

Mine is about 2 years old and the medallion falls off pretty regularly, the metalchain is so soft. It's not a big deal, it happens after zipping the zipper by pulling on the chain x amount of times. I just push the chainlinks back together and that's it.

Thanks for the responses :yes:

I hear some ladies have this problem with their medallion and some don't and I've also heard that it happens more often with the gold, is that true? I'm concerned if it gets lost, can a new one be purchased?


Where your BOSS at ?

I bought mine a year ago and the medallion kept falling off.. I have since sent it back to Chanel for other things to be fixed and I made a note to tell them that the medallion keeps falling...
No matter how tight I close the chains it still kept popping off.
I fell off at the parking lot at my job and I went on a man hunt until I found it...My medallion was pink with silver hardware..
I had a post about this prevously.

I think it was Pursegalsf who had one w/ that problem once upon a time.

I read ranskimmie's thread about the medallion tote and how she loved the bag and later sold it because of this problem with the medallion.

I haven't read Pursegalsf's post about her having problems with it too. :s

I love that bag, but I'd hate to spend so much on a Chanel bag and have to worry about it all the time. :sad:


Look out Singapore!!

hasn't fallen off yet - i have two - on the bowler and the cabas - the only thing i don't like about the cabas is the medalion goes everywhere i don't want ... never stays put next to my arm ...
