Editor Obsessions: Antique Tiffany & Co. Vanity Set

-------

Every day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

Anyone who’s glanced at my Instagram account is well aware that my black rabbit, Mssr. François Froufrou, is the love of my life. He currently has such exciting accessories as a custom Piers Atkinson top hat, black-and-white harlequin-check mats, and a Chanel box in which he likes to sleep. François is very particular about what I use to brush him, and I think he would enjoy this Rococo sterling silver vanity set by Tiffany & Co. I love the cherubs on each piece—little angles, just like my Mssr. Froufrou. Is it ridiculous to get a rabbit an early 20th-century vanity set? Absolutely. However, ridiculous happens to be my middle name. (Actually, my middle name is Klaire, but I’m trying to make a point.) Not to mention, if he tires of these antique treasures, they’d look great in my bedroom.

Have Your Coco And Wear It Too

-------

Just try to find a picture of Coco Chanel without her signature strands of pearls—it’s not an easy task. The woman certainly loved her little black jackets and dresses, but she also had a well-known penchant for jewelry. In honor of what would be the designer’s 129th birthday (August 19), 1stdibs.com is launching an online birthday capsule collection sale of Chanel jewelry and accessories. Starting tomorrow at 3 p.m., over 60 necklaces, sautoirs, brooches, bracelets, and earrings dating from the sixties through 2008, curated by Douglas Rosin Decorative Arts & Antiques, will be for sale on the site. Especially of note in the collection (ranging in price from $500 to $5,000) are the designs adorned with colored stones and faux pearls, made by the Paris-based specialists at Gripoix (which handmade a great deal of Chanel’s jewelry). Here, a first look at one of the Gripoix pieces in the sale.
