The Story

The iconic 2.55 bag is adorned with signature details like lambskin leather, a gold-plated CC turn-lock at front, adjustable chain straps, slim back pocket, and diamond quilting. During the 1980s and 1990s, Chanel hardware was 24k gold plated which has since been discontinued due to the high price of gold. This exact style is no longer made today, making it a true collectors item and a Chanel staple!

we sell vintage

Everything on our site is original, one-of-a-kind vintage. We encourage you to embrace the unique character of each piece, as this is a natural part of owning something vintage. We do not change any of the original designs, unlike other vintage re-sellers.

our standards

Our collection is consistent in quality and we do not sell anything that is broken or overly tarnished more than it should be based on its age. Each product description will make mention of the condition of each piece, either excellent (minor wear) or good (moderate wear), and if marked, the name of the designer.

determining provenance

Since we span so many decades and designers, it's hard to identify the specific history of each piece. We research history books and use our expertise of the industry — which we have gained over our 35+ combined years in the vintage business — to make assumptions about decades and exclusivity. Most of the base metals are brass and platings have been triple dipped, which prevents sensitivities. Also, this level of craftsmanship means vintage jewelry typically lasts for years to come, compared to today's costume jewelry, which has usually only been dipped in finish once and tarnishes rather quickly.

how we handle your spark

Every piece has been professionally cleaned with an ultrasonic cleanser using the appropriate cleaning solution, and all pearls or stones have been hand cleaned. Also, all clasps and jump rings have been tightened for safe wear and pierced earrings will come with brand new backs.
