The story of how I came to collaborate with Chopard is almost like a fairytale. There was this beautiful Chopard butterfly-themed silk scarf that Caroline surprised me with as a gift, and it was just sitting there on the table with a note! And the minute I saw it, I thought, "wow!", because I had just received the Diamond Award for one of my songs and really wanted to celebrate the moment and make it major, but I hadn't told anybody yet.

So, I reached out to Caroline, and as we spoke about the concept, she started sketching this unbelievable butterfly diamond necklace.
(Mariah wears a stunning necklace with three chains threaded with diamonds and a sparkling butterfly pendant.)
That is still my most memorable moment in the process of co-designing this collection, which is really for everybody. You can go casual chic or be over the top, whatever.
(Maria poses, now in a more casual outfit featuring a white shirt and black leggings along with smaller Chopard jewelry pieces that sparkle at her wrist, ears and neck. She sits cross-legged on a cushion with a small dog on her lap.)
Chopard is known as the Maison of "joie de vivre", representing glamour and exquisite quality while maintaining the utmost ethical standards. I have a very specific connection to the butterfly, almost beyond the observable, physical universe. Ok, I am a little dramatic, but we are talking about diamond butterflies, representing happiness, freedom, and emancipation, darling.
(Mariah Carey stands with the whole team who celebrate and clap.)
That makes me happy.
