The Queen of Kala­hari

L’Officiel Middle East (English) - - Contents -

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.
