Chopard has been officially partnering with the prestigious Cannes Film Festival since 1998. The Maison’s stunning creations have allured onlookers on the red carpet in equal measure as the beauty of the actresses who embody its radiant energy during the legendary ascent of the staircase. Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie collection is all set to be unveiled at the upcoming Festival in July 2021, comprising 74 mesmerizing creations. Before the magic unravels, we bring to you a sneak peek by revealing the first models themed around a fabulous haven of fantasy. Called Paradise, this Red Carpet collection is complete with emblematic pieces designed by Caroline Scheufele, Chopard’s Co-President and Artistic Director, who drew inspiration from the lush nature of the mythological or real places populating her fantasy repertoire. One of the most dazzling pieces of the Paradise collection is a choker interlacing yellow diamonds before opening into a second halo of light adorning the decolletage. An exceptional, fancy vivid yellow 30.68-carat diamond single-handedly outlines the sumptuous splendor of the necklace. The snake ring inspired by the Garden of Eden is another stunner part of the Paradise collection, along with the ‘dolphin ring’ that spotlights a magnificent 59-carat oval tanzanite. Caroline Scheufele takes the design bar high with a stunning bracelet that looks like a collage of bright garnets, tsavorites, and tourmalines around a central graphic motif.
The 74 creations of the Paradise Red Carpet Collection correspond to the number of years since the Cannes Festival first began. This Haute Joaillerie collection will be the showstopper at the upcoming Festival in July 2021.
