Chain Reaction

Coco Chanel first designed the double chain belt in 1956 and ever since it has been a Chanel trademark.  Karl added to the iconic chain belt a double string of pearls and a dangling pendant with a tassel of tiny pearls.  A small "fob" hangs from the pearls with the profile of Chanel.   Coco Chanel wore her double chain belts with a pendant featuring a heart or a lion in a fob like fashion in her pocket for good luck.
