Collier de chien literally translates to “dog collar,” which explains a lot of the initial design. Complete with eight rounded spikes, the iconic bracelet is available in a healthy variety of colors and materials from calf to crocodile, in either palladium or gold plated hardware. With the exception of the all metal ones, which around double the cost, the Collier de chienbracelet is made of a single strip of the skin which the hardware is expertly affixed to. The simple turn lock-styled closure is adjustable and secured with a sliding metal piece to ensure a comfortable fit. An Hermès stamp of authenticity appears on the inside of the band. Some collectors refer to the Collier de chien simply as the CDC.
Inspired by the ever-chic Collier de chien belt that was first introduced in 1927, the bracelet is believed to have been introduced into retail in the 1940s. Although we cannot account for the style’s popularity throughout the twentieth century, ever since Pierre Hardy’s entrance into the house in 2002, Hermès has been a leader in the silver jewelry market and the Collier de chien has clearly been at the forefront. In fact, in the company’s annual report for 2009, the Collier de chien ring and bracelet were both pointed out as particular successes of the year.
