This polar bear is made with 9 carats of diamonds: unveiling Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection 2020

by Iris Chui

Chopard’s creative genius pays tribute to Nature

Official partner to the Cannes International Film Festival since 1998, Chopard annually unveils an Haute Joaillerie collection named Red Carpet.

A great lover of Nature, Caroline Scheufele, Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard, has chosen this subject as the main theme for the 2020 Red Carpet Collection. The first creations provide a foretaste of the 73 models that will compose this precious “jewellery casket” inspired by natural enchantment. Chopard is thus exclusively revealing the first creations stemming from the brilliant talent deployed in its workshops: an “Owl” jewellery watch featuring two dials surrounded by multicoloured sapphires forming the eyes of the nocturnal creature; a pair of “Orchids” earrings featuring incredibly natural-looking sapphire petals and tsavorite buds; “Gingko” earrings and ring composed of pear-shaped emeralds, tsavorites and yellow sapphires in shades evoking the foliage of this majestic tree; as well as a series of “Polar bear” and “Seal” diamond rings.
