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.
