Coco Chanel knew the two staples in a stylish wardrobe were a string of pearls and a little black dress. While everyone has attempted their own version of the ubiquitous frock, Chanel's chic jewellery continues to stand out from the crowd. The autumn accessories collection from the French house pays homage to Coco's favourite luminescent treasures by pairing them with playful charms of bows, snowflakes and the Chanel logo. The necklaces cost $11,700 and, with their fun twist on matronly pearls, will appeal to mums and daughters alike.

Chanel is at Prince's Building, Central, tel: 2810 0978.
