'Chopard Loves Cinema' - Haute Joaillerie Collection Celebrates Chopard's 25th Year as Official Partner to Cannes Film Festival

'Chopard Loves Cinema’ is the theme Chopard has adopted to celebrate its activities at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, the 25th year in which the jeweller has been an official partner.

On this occasion, Caroline Scheufele has designed a masterful Red Carpet Collection of 75 Haute Joaillerie creations: an epic saga inspired by the grand adventure of cinema from its early black and white charms to its dizzying colours. This creative abundance draws on her own repertoire and the magnificent models capture the watershed moment when contemporary cinema was born and began to blossom.

In tribute to the 75th Cannes Film Festival, the collections will be composed of no fewer than 75 Haute Joaillerie creations, whose wonders can be admired on the famous red carpet of the Festival's preview screenings. A technical feat, brought to life through the combined talents and expertise of a team of jewellers such as only Chopard is capable of assembling.

To enhance the dazzling sparkle of this Red Carpet Collection, Chopard’s ateliers have assembled a selection of high-quality precious stones. This approach has notably given rise to earrings set with two 17.16 and 15.85-carat unheated sapphires. While sourcing a single sapphire of this size and with such a naturally rich colour is already a rare occurrence in itself, pairing two specimens of equal properties is quite simply miraculous. To reveal the nobility of this sapphire duo, whose luminous hue is described as cornflower blue, Chopard has combined them with two sets of white, pink and blue diamonds, thus creating an enchanting visual feast.

A great admirer of Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece To Catch a Thief, Caroline Scheufele has also designed a necklace based on an exceptional 13.69-carat internally flawless D-grade diamond, which evokes the spirit of the French Riviera, whose luxury and relaxed lifestyle have been attracting the greatest stars for decades.

Other jewels in the Red Carpet Collection include a rich pearl necklace punctuated by a pear-shaped spinel that falls gracefully into the hollow of the neck, as well as a set of aquamarine and diamond rings and earrings shaped like the prow of a gondola and Venetian bridges, as well as a pair of earrings in tangy colours punctuated by yellow, pink and white diamonds.
