Capri is where everything started for Chantecler. Everyday its energy, colors and scents give life to something extraordinary and unique, which we lovingly turn into jewels. Chantecler wouldn’t be the same company it is today if Capri, as well as being the focal point of our equilibrium, were not also at the centre of a world that marks time and influences. Between the fifties and sixties, the period of the Dolce Vita, Chantecler became a brand loved by the international jet set who stayed on the island, including admirers Ingrid Bergman and Jacqueline Kennedy. This cuff with beautiful cabochon emeralds, turquoise and orange sapphires define the style of this grand evening bangle bracelet.
