Happy Diamonds

In 1976, the workshops of the Maison were bursting with energy. Drawing on nature as an endless source of inspiration, they imagined diamonds that would reproduce the beauty of a cascade. The ‘Happy Diamonds’ concept was born, directly evoking the sparkling drops of a waterfall. Happier because they are free.

Identity

The legacy of Dancing Diamonds

By overturning watchmaking and luxury jewellery codes in the mid-1970s, Chopard accompanied the changes of an era marked by women's empowerment and the liberalisation of society. The Maison pays tribute to the victorious past that forged its identity.
