Chopard unveils a paradise of rare gemstones that pay tribute to nature, an endless source of inspiration to the maison.
The world of fine gems has been gifted new inspiration as Chopard’s Co-President and Artistic Director, Caroline Scheufele, presents the brand’s Exceptional Stones collection. Among these treasured stones is the Chopard Insofu Emerald, the most spectacular gem of them all – a 6,225-carat rough emerald mined in Zambia and the object of a traceability and responsibility process. Due to the exceptional purity and record size of the Chopard Insofu Emerald, specialists expect it to yield many high-quality cut stones, from which the Chopard workshops will create a collection of jewellery pieces.
The collection brings precious stones brought back from the four corners of the Earth. It includes some unique specimens, such as a 3.01-carat, pear-shaped, D-Internally Flawless, type IIA diamond and a 4.22-carat, pear-shaped, fancy intense blue diamond – a rare carat weight for a stone of such colour. The duo is set on a majestic ‘Toi et Moi’ ring representing a unique symbol of the union of two equally beautiful gems. The 10.88-carat fancy intense pink diamond reflects the passion for coloured diamonds harboured by the maison’s creative soul that gives the name to the piece – Rose of Caroline. The radiant-cut diamond is placed in a Fairmined-certified ethical gold ring.
A fancy dark grey-greenish, yellow diamond, that owes its Chameleon nickname to its ability to change colour depending on its exposure to light or heat, is a breathtaking 31.31-carat stone destined to be majestically set on a mischievous frog-shaped ring.
Finally, the last ring is beautifully enhanced by a 21.04-carat, cushion-cut Ceylon sapphire. This unheated stone radiates a unique talisman-like charm thanks to a timeless setting, adorned with diamonds that accentuate its natural colour.
