THE HISTORY OF Chopard has always been marked by exceptiona­l stones, but the jewellery house’s latest acquisitio­n may be the one to top them all. Named Chopard Insofu (meaning “elephant” in the Bemba language spoken in the region of Zambia where the stone was mined), the 6,225-carat rough emerald is considered one of the most important ever found in terms of both weight and quality. Co-president and artistic director Caroline Scheufele will lead the effort to deliver a dedicated capsule collection of haute joaillerie pieces crafted from the single emerald crystal.
