With the daz­zling Gar­den of Kala­hari neck­lace sparkling from her dé­col­letage, the leg­endary singer Shirley Bassey was cer­tainly dressed for the oc­ca­sion when she per­formed Di­a­monds Are For­ever dur­ing a party in Paris to cel­e­brate the launch of Chopard’s lat­est high jew­ellery col­lec­tion, The Gar­den of Kala­hari. The star-stud­ded guest list for the Théâtre du Châtelet soiree in­cluded Czech su­per­model Pe­tra Nem­cová, Amer­i­can ac­tress Kirsten Dunst and for­mer first lady of France Carla Bruni. The stones fea­tured in the daz­zling new col­lec­tion, which com­prises the neck­lace Bassey wore, a cuff bracelet, two cock­tail rings, a pair of ear­rings and a se­cret watch, were cut from a 342-carat rough di­a­mond found in Botswana and named the Queen of Kala­hari. The neck­lace fea­tures the three largest stones—a 50-carat bril­liant-cut, a 25-carat pear­shaped and a 26-carat heart-shaped gem. A 50-minute doc­u­men­tary screened dur­ing the party, The Queen of Kala­hari, tells the story of the rough di­a­mond’s dis­cov­ery at the Karowe mine and the painstak­ing, year-long de­sign process that brought the Chopard col­lec­tion to life.
