If splendid gems and diamonds, informed by ballet and blossoms came together in a Haute Joaillerie and Horlogeric collection, what would it be like? Infinitely precious! Chopard releases its blindingly brilliant collection, Precious Chopard – a shimmering array of diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies at Baselworld earlier this year. Delicate and precious pieces imbued with “the graceful charm of a blooming corolla and the joyful flurry of a whirling tutu,” the collection attempts to capture the movement of a dancer in mid-air. The lace-trimmed petals of the rings and earrings celebrate the tutu’s delicate flares, twirling around with elegance, while the necklace features open-worked interlacing motifs.
The collection also includes jewelry watches with elegant satin straps and statement-making gemstone embellished versions: the snow-set gem adorned dial is hemmed by pear, brilliant, baguette cut gemstones and diamonds in a “sublte and airy lacework pattern,” while the bracelet straps pick up the ornamental theme all along, making the timepieces nothing short of incredible.
