Chopard Official Partner of the 71st Cannes Film Festival- Introducing the red Carpet Collection 2018

By  |  0 Comments

As the Cannes International Film Festival approaches, the High Jewellery workshops of the Maison Chopard are giving life to a splendid collection envisioned by Caroline Scheufele. An anthem to femininity and beauty, these exceptional jewellery creations will adorn the greatest actresses on the red carpet, making Chopard an inescapable lodestar when it comes to emotions and glamour. Partnering with the Cannes Festival for 20 years, the Maison annually crafts the legendary Palme d’or, along with the other awards presented at the festival’s closing ceremonies, all made from Fairmined-certified ethical gold.  While the High Jewellery ateliers are hard at work on these unique works of art, Caroline Scheufele – the woman who inspired their creations – announces an edition brimming with surprises.

Every year since 2007, Chopard the Co-President and Creative Director Caroline Scheufele has been visualisation a High Jewellery collection taking up the extraordinary challenge of releasing a number of jewellery pieces equivalent to the edition number of the Festival. Stemming from her boundless imagination and from the peerless mastery of diverse skills within the Chopard workshops, a complete collection of 71 creations will be revealed this year, dedicated to the world’s greatest actresses for their red carpet appearances.

From the Red Carpet Collection 2018;

 

 

 

 

“Fringe necklace in 18ct white gold set pear-shaped diamonds (38cts) and briolette- cut and brilliant-cut colored diamonds”

 

Necklace in 18ct white gold and titanium, composed of tanzanite beads for a total of 459cts, and set with ceramic, a pear-shaped aquamarine of 12.4cts, one golden pearl of 12.7cts, pear-shaped aquamarines, pear-shaped tanzanites, pear-shaped tsavorites, brilliant-cut and marquise-cut pink sapphires, brilliant-cut spessartine garnets, brilliant-cut and marquise-cut diamonds and brilliant-cut yellow sapphires.

Earrings in 18ct white gold and titanium with intricate motifs composed of tanzanite cabochons for a total of 40cts, pear-shaped (6.8cts) and brilliant-cut (6.8cts) diamonds and brilliant-cut sapphires (5.1cts).

This year, the Red Carpet Collection is inspired by the various travels and dreams of its creator. Year in and year out – the members of Caroline’s family who used to travel the globe with trunks filled with precious merchandise, voyaging as far as the court of the Tsar of Russia – she determinedly tours the many countries in which the family Maison’s creations are present. These peregrinations are a perpetual source of inspiration for Caroline Scheufele, who takes note and sketches her impressions in her travel diaries. With the Red Carpet Collection, she invites us into the secret world of her reveries and personal intuitions, offering a delightful, generous and mysterious revelation. She is inspired by anything and everything: from architecture, to art, to literature and cinema. A miniscule detail is enough for this fervent gem lover to dream up the most splendid – and above all most ingenious – adornments. Nature also remains a powerful source of fascination for her creative mind.
