Chopard sets the stage for the debut of a twirling, virtuoso Haute Joaillerie collection named “Precious Chopard”. Radiating the graceful charm of blooming petals and the joyful flurry of a whirling tutu, the Precious Chopard collection is a dream ballet of dazzling colours for which Chopard has created the jewellery as a great couturier would design the costumes. Delicate and precious, finely wrought and set with luminous gems, the Precious Chopard collection is a lacework of intermingled creativity and emotion.

Jewellery watches along with matching necklaces, earrings and rings compose the Precious Chopard collection which is as refined as it is spectacular. Just as Haute Couture utilizes only exceptional fabrics, giving life to this collection naturally called for the most beautiful stones.

The watches are set with pear-shaped and brilliant-cut diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies. On their dials, matching baguette-cut gems surround a dainty corolla evoking a floral motif using the snow-setting technique. The models are fitted with bracelets extending this jewellery lacework theme, or with brightly coloured brushed fabric straps. The earrings and rings reflect the subtle curves of the watch, while the necklaces are graced with delicately openworked, interlacing motifs.
The Precious Chopard collection supremely embodies technical virtuosity dedicated to resolutely modern artistry, testifying to the broad stylistic repertoire of the Geneva-based House. Chopard creations belong to the finest Haute Joaillerie tradition and showcase the artistic skills of top craftsman: wax-sculpting experts, jewellers, stone-cutters, gem-setters and polishers. From lines to volumes, from goldsmithing to fashioning precious stones, they push the boundaries of feasibility and combine their talents in breathing life into the most beautiful jewellery.
While these creations involve classic expertise and faithfully safeguarded traditions, they are also nurtured by exceptional inspiration and boldness, vividly demonstrating the major role played by Chopard on the contemporary Haute Joaillerie scene. Collections such as Animal World or Fleur d’Opales reveal an impressive creative vitality as well as the unbridled imagination of the company’s co-president and artistic director, Caroline Scheufele – the driving force behind the development of the Chopard Haute Joaillerie collections.
