Pre­sent­ing an ensem­ble of the most talked- about high jew­ellery and time­pieces

“The en­ergy and emo­tional cha rge em­a­nat­ing from this gem are truly in­com­pa­ra­ble,” said Chopard’s artis­tic di­rec­tor and co-pres­i­dent Caro­line Scheufele of the Queen of Kala­hari di­a­mond. Weigh­ing 342 carats with the most prized D colour and per­fect F clar­ity, the stone with the ex­per­tise of Chopard’s ate­liers, was crafted into 23 di­a­monds, five of which were honed into cush­ion, bril­liant, heart, emer­ald and pear cuts, each weigh­ing over 20 carats. “Faced with this rough di­a­mond, we had a num­ber of po­ten­tial op­tions. I wanted to ex­plore ev­ery pos­si­bil­ity and to rep­re­sent all di­a­mond cuts,” ex­plained Scheufele. The Gar­dens of Kala­hari, the col­lec­tion de­rived from the il­lus­tri­ous Queen of Kala­hari, com­prises two rings, a neck­lace, a bracelet, a pair of ear­rings and a se­cret watch.

A mon­u­men­tal di­a­mond dis­cov­ery is the in­spi­ra­tion for Chopard’s lat­est stel­lar high jew­ellery col­lec­tion.
