The Marilyn Tribute jewellery set


The 65th Cannes Film Festival officialy opened yesterday, and our diamonds tribute to Marilyn Monroe was finally unveiled on the red carpet!

As a tribute to the movie icon who passed away exactly 50 years ago, Caroline Scheufele has designed this extraordinary jewellery creation inspired by the star and which was worn by Eva Herzigova for the mounting of the steps ritual on the Festival opening night. Our Chopard Co-President was especially keen for this great friend of the House and contemporary glamour icon to participate in this homage.

The Marilyn Tribute set from the Red Carpet collection is composed of a necklace in 18-carat white gold set with beads diamonds (151.64 cts), heart shaped diamonds (30.72 cts) and diamonds (18.53cts). Matching earrings complete the set. 980 hours of work were required for the most important piece of our Red Carpet Collection.
