Chopard lights up the world of High Jewelry
Magical Setting

Chopard, the Artisan of Emotions, ignites the traditional world of High Jewelry with a scintillating collection, Magical Setting. The spectacular radiance of these majestic cluster rings, pendants and earrings is made possible by an ingenious and innovative secret setting that allows the diamonds and precious colored stones to shine supreme, playing with light as never before. In this dynamic re-imagining of one of the noblest and most enduring jewelry classics – the floral cluster – Caroline Scheufele, Chopard Co-President and artistic director, unlocks the intense light and luster deep in the soul of a gemstone while unleashing the full emotional power at the heart of the jewel. A captivating exploration of light in all its many facets.


The dramatic light show given by these luxury jewels is achieved by an innovative setting technique, painstakingly developed by Chopard’s master Artisans in which the cluster is underpinned by an entirely new and pioneering structure. This means that the light can flow freely in and out and around the gemstones, rippling across the surface of the stones, unimpeded by the opacity of metal constraints, unfettered by demarcations.


A lifelong love of gemstones
For many years, Caroline Scheufele nurtured a dream: to make settings disappear, to give gemstones the power to shine, unadulterated, to unlock the full force of their brilliance and enhance their otherworldliness. She challenged her craftsmen, who shook their heads, saying her ideas were too complicated and impossible to achieve.
Her creative vision is brought to life with Magical Setting High Jewelry Collection in which her dedicated Artisans have tapped into today’s cutting-edge technology, combining it with age-old skills to create a new contemporary jewelry classic - jewels of sensational, seductive luster, jewels to scintillate and fascinate, to set the spirit free.
" The Magical Setting collection is an evolution of Chopard’s most famous creation, Happy Diamonds. It marks the next step in Chopard’s ongoing mission to set diamonds free, to find a new expression for High Jewelry that will capture and reflect contemporary femininity, the aspirations and attitudes of modern women.

Classically elegant in color composition as well as design, the collection offers a choice of jewels set with white diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds. Each cluster is centered on one large single stone encircled by other unusually large stones, giving the classic design an unexpected edge of bold modernity.


In the Magical Setting High Jewelry Collection, Caroline Scheufele takes on the challenge held out by the classicism of the cluster, exploring its nobility and versatility, playing with its proportions, and revelling in its connection to a galactic star cluster; a tightly-packed mass of pure light and energy, radiating outwards, in the night sky, inspiring awe, wonder and excitement.


While Chopard is renowned for its rebellious, free-spirited and unconventional approach to High Jewelry, with the Magical Setting collection Caroline Scheufele re-works one of the most classic of jewelry expressions. While the center stone of each cluster is set in barely-there claws, the surrounding stones are held in place, as if by magic, with no visible means of support, and no metal visible from the front or top of the jewel while the gold of the underlying structure serves to intensify its dazzling brilliance.
