The Queen of Kalahari
Entrusted to and combined with the expertise of the Chopard ateliers, this 342-carat diamond has found its most eloquent expression in an extraordinary ensemble of 23 diamonds: The Garden of Kalahari. Each of these gems, is of D colour and grade F (flawless) clarity. Among the 23 diamonds, five weigh more than 20 carats and each of the main stone cuts – cushion, brilliant, heart, emerald and pear – is represented. Caroline Scheufele is the creative soul of the Maison Chopard. Through her eyes, the radiant 50-carat brilliant cut becomes a sunflower, the 26-carat heart shape a delicate pansy, and the 25-carat pear shape a banana blossom. Shapes, echoes, reflections and colours entwine in an an extraordinary garden. The collection represents a full year’s work.
An ultra-rare 342-carat diamond provided the stones for the most precious jewellery set ever produced by Chopard.
