Sharing the limelight with the catwalking assemblies of ornate fabrics at Haute Couture week, haute joaillerie pieces of discerning craftsmanship command equal attention.
At couture week in Paris – some 12 months after accession into the Fédération Française de la Couture – Chopard have showed off their latest sparkling creations. Three cuff-bracelets, cast from titanium and featuring a kaleidoscopic spectrum of gemstones, plus a necklace boasting a constellation of red and blue stones and a pair of earrings with jade, emeralds and diamonds.
The first bracelet, citing a “flight toward spring” as a theme, features two butterflies comprising topazes, Paraiba tourmalines and amethysts which, most interestingly, are independently detachable to become a pair of earrings and brooch, respectively.
Additionally, Chopard introduce three new ring creations to its exotic Fleur d’Opales capsule collection. Debuting in last July’s Couture week, this doubles the collection to 6 rings that put the iridescent stone centre stage within floral sets of titanium with tsavorites, pink sapphire, garnets, diamonds and spinels.
