Dancing diamonds are the ultimate emblem of the Maison Chopard. Invented in Chopard’s workshops in 1976, they have never ceased to distil their daring through multiple watch and jewellery creations. Through the talent of the artisans in Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie workshops, they now lend their signature touch to three unprecedented jewellery watches crafted in ethical 18-carat white gold. Each features a dial set with five dancing diamonds and framed by a tiara of marquise-cut precious stones.
Within Caroline Scheufele‘s creative repertoire, jewellery watches stir very special emotions: the grandfather of the current Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard was already famous almost a century ago for the gemset timepieces in which he specialised. This gives an idea of the expertise cultivated by the artisans in the Maison’s Haute Joaillerie ateliers, which are now unveiling three new creations in ethical white gold, diamonds and sapphires.
These jewellery masterpieces also nurture the heritage of dancing diamonds, skilfully perpetuated since the Maison invented this revolutionary concept in 1976: five setting-free diamonds spin joyfully on their own axis as well as whirling around the watch dial. In passing, they offer infinite shimmering reflections of the light illuminating their facets, bringing to life a show that upends our vision of time. The artisans of the Maison’s Haute Joaillerie workshops have set an array of carefully calibrated marquise-cut precious stones forming a ‘laurel wreath’ around this hypnotically charming dial. The first all-diamond version is complemented by two others graced with blue or pink sapphires. They are respectively fitted with matching grey, blue or pink satin straps.
