This Holiday Season, Chopard celebrates Winter Wonderland
A dusting of magic. A soft hush. A fleeting halt in the mad rush of time to explore a fabled forest. Dazzling Chopard jewellery takes flight amid the frosty murmur of a winter’s tale.
Within an enchanted ice palace, Chopard invites you to venture through fascinating detours, where winter muffles footsteps and suffuses the world with its majestic light.
When the most precious stones adorn Chopard’s iconic collections, the Maison exerts its spellbinding charms. Diamonds and gems, set in white, rose and yellow gold, treat winter to a flurry of emotions and sensations, captured in the gossamer-fine threads of its crystal-clear radiance.
A story of marvels and timeless beauty incarnated in snowflakes emerging in complex shapes from their journey down to Earth, revealing themselves different each time.No two alike, snowflakes are a true symbol of nature and its fragility. Delicate and ephemeral, snowflakes come as fairy dust.
By William Baer
Timing’s everything. The vapor rises
high in the sky, tossing to and fro,
then freezes, suddenly, and crystalizes
into a perfect flake of miraculous snow.
For countless miles, drifting east above
the world, whirling about in a swirling freefor-
all, appearing aimless, just like love,
but sensing, seeking out, its destiny.
Falling to where the two young skaters stand,
hand in hand, then flips and dips and whips
itself about to ever-so-gently land,
a miracle, across her unkissed lips:
as he blocks the wind raging from the south,
leaning forward to kiss her lovely mouth.
