Through everything that the Maison creates and embodies, Chopard infuses the act of giving with authentic grandeur and nobility: gifts become links conveying emotions and shared values. Valentine’s Day provides the watchmaker-jeweller with a renewed opportunity to express its creative genius and its alchemist’s touch. By transforming matter into precious talismans, Chopard becomes the messenger of the most beautiful declarations.
In addition to being a symbol of life and love, the heart is also Chopard’s emblem. A shape that the Maison interprets through an infinitely varied repertoire. Happy Diamonds Icons, Happy Hearts and the Haute Joaillerie collection are all fields of expression for the magic of the heart in which Chopard artisans are true virtuosos. Emotions also characterise the hours, minutes and seconds spent thinking about a loved one, dreaming of the next encounter, anticipating an eagerly awaited rendezvous. Time is nothing if it is not measured by the emotions that give it depth and scope. Chopard has fully grasped this truth and naturally beats to the rhythm of the unforgettable moments punctuating a lifetime. Aptly enough, the Maison also crafts exceptional timepieces through its L.U.C and Mille Miglia collections.
Chopard presents a universal heart: a motif uniting all those whose generosity and kindness infuse heart-felt impulses with true nobility. By day or night, from the office to the opera, it distils its magic, radiating an inimitable aura that enables each and every woman to reveal her own nature. The Chopard heart corresponds to an emotional wave that unfurls, lighting up daily life with its brightness and exuding the scent of eternity while reflecting the mood of the moment.
This heart is revealed in all its majesty through an enchantingly multi-faceted collection: Happy Diamonds Icons. A series of diamond-set or polished hearts interpreted as pendants, earrings and rings, available in 18-carat rose or white gold, in which dancing diamonds move freely between two sapphire crystals. On the pendants, five dancing diamonds whirl inside this pulsating heart, while three dancing diamonds adorning the earrings light up the wearer’s face from either side. The entirely diamond-set rings also feature the same delightful sight of three dancing diamonds.
Since 1976 and the invention of the first Happy Diamonds watch, dancing diamonds have been merrily lighting up Chopard’s watch and jewellery creations. The Maison’s infinite creative resources have been devoted to perpetually reinterpreting and reinventing the original watch. This historical timepiece now comes in a splendid interpretation measuring 28.60 mm in diameter. Crafted in 18-carat rose gold and set with diamonds, the Happy Diamonds Joaillerie watch frames a dainty white textured mother-of-pearl dial whose shimmering reflections echo the magic of five dancing diamonds moving freely between two sapphire crystals. Their light and free-spirited demeanour evokes the imperturbable cheerfulness of carefree lovers.
The innate freedom of these diamonds recalls that of the heart in its own movements. A token of love and a lucky charm, the Happy Hearts line exudes the aura of a talisman. It is a promise one makes to oneself or gives to a loved one, as well as a mantra of Joie de Vivre. Far more than mere pieces of jewellery, Chopard creations are a link between oneself and the world, as well as with the precious moments testifying to these cherished relations. Jewellery brimming with meaning, symbolising caring for others. The collection is now enriched with new 18-carat rose gold earrings and rings mingling adorable bouquets of hearts carrying dancing diamonds, red hearts and hearts set with white mother-of-pearl or mother-of-pearl and diamonds.
The choice of a Chopard jewellery creation is never insignificant. Above and beyond the aesthetic feats it embodies, the values it conveys testify to the mutual recognition and emotional understanding between a Maison and a customer. The choice of Happy Hearts jewellery is that of a big-hearted woman, an everyday heroine who sees in the Maison’s commitments an echo of her own generosity. Inspired by the idea that attention to one’s personal needs and desires must never be detrimental to others, big-hearted women find in Happy Hearts creations a sense of genuine consistency with their own value system, inextricably interwoven with a desire for self-giving.
Caroline Scheuefele’s favourite gem shape, the heart shape, is highlighted in the latest Haute Joaillerie creations to emerge from the dedicated ateliers. The co-president and artistic director of the Maison selected a precious assortment of 54 diamonds whose clarity is magnified by this distinctive shape. Each of these gems is a token of love, an embodiment of the emotions procured by the power of love. Arranged in descending order of size starting with the largest placed in the centre, they are assembled into a stunning river of diamonds totalling over 62 carats and which will delight the heart of any woman in love fortunate enough to wear them.
A matching 18-carat white gold solitaire ring showcases another 7.5-carat heart-shaped diamond appearing as the centrepiece of an original design. Mounted on a sinuously curving ring entirely set with brilliant-cut diamonds, the stone glows with inimitable radiance.
