Life naturally harbours the joy of perpetual motion, as gracefully expressed through the subtle movement of a talisman jewel: the Happy Spirit collection symbolises the cardinal values permeating Maison Chopard.
Happy Spirit captures the spirit of a mineral heart – that of a diamond – surrounded and further enhanced by concentric circles. At the dawn of the new century, Chopard’s iconic dancing diamonds gave birth to Happy Spirit, a collection of jewellery endowed with mesmerising charm, talismans for the woman who wears them and a living tableau for those who observe them in action. Happy Spirit jewellery is now reinvented through a new design that is sleeker, lighter and more luminous than ever.
Chopard Global Ambassadress Zhang Ziyi devotes her beauty and her inherent sense of elegance in displaying Happy Spirit collection to stunning effect.

The enduring symbolism of the circle, mingling ethnological and cultural elements, stems from its aesthetic perfection exercising an undeniable fascination. Through a wonderful game of chance and kinetic energy, dancing diamonds perform a mesmerising choreography staging multiplied circles, the perennial and multicultural symbol of femininity, fertility and perpetual rebirth. Their incessant movement tells the story of a whirl of a joyful life in motion.

Happy Spirit comes as a collection of necklaces and pendants of different sizes, equally capable of enhancing a cashmere sweater or a full-length evening gown. Depending on their size, one to three dancing diamonds rotate, protected by several nested circles. The collection also features ear studs and a pair of sleeper earrings as well as rings and bangles. Each model is made of 18-carat ethical gold – to which the Maison has been officially committed since July 2018 – available in two versions: diamond-set white gold or two-tone polished rose and white gold.
