Anticipating Cannes Film Festival, Chopard presents its Red Carpet Collection
May 2, 2016: Swiss jeweler, Chopard, unveils its 2016 Red Carpet Collection that speaks of high aesthetics and ethics.
The official partner of the Cannes Film Festival, Chopard has, since 2007, marked the week-long, invite-only movie spectacle with exquisite pieces, intended to adorn celebrities on the red carpet.
In line with its tradition to expand its Red Carpet collections to match the number of the festival’s installments, Chopard commemorates this year’s 69th edition with 69 creations of supple and flowing designs that accentuate on rounded shapes.
Focusing on the necklace, the 2016 Red Carpet Collection pays tribute to femininity in a dazzling array of rubies, opals, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds of exceptional quality. Among the highlights are a choker of daffodil-yellow and pearl-white diamonds as well as a tie-necklace of five rows of emeralds, sapphires, rubillites, tsavorites, topazes and amethysts.
More than an embodiment of lavishness, the collection – through its Green Carpet segment – is also Chopard’s testament to sustainable luxury. Inaugurated three years ago, the Green Carpet capsule line has been exclusively crafted with Fairmined-certified gold and – for the first time this year – Gemfields’ responsibly sourced precious stones.
