Precious Lace

Chopard leads a dance of dazzling Haute Joaillerie

With Precious Lace, the Maison sets the stage for a twirling, virtuoso Haute Joaillerie collection. Radiating the graceful charm of blooming petals and with the joyful flurry of a whirling tutu, the Precious Lace collection is a dream ballet of dazzling colours, Chopard having created the jewellery as a great couturier would design the costumes. Delicate and precious, finely wrought and set with luminous gems, the Precious Lace collection is a work of intermingled creativity and emotion.

The Precious Lace collection

Jewellery watches, matching necklaces, earrings and rings compose the Precious Lace collection, which is as refined as it is spectacular. Just as Haute Couture utilizes only exceptional fabrics, giving life to this collection naturally called for the most beautiful stones. The watches are set with pear-shaped and brilliant-cut diamonds, sapphires, emeralds and rubies. Dials of matching baguette-cut gems are surrounded by a dainty corolla evoking a floral motif using the snow-setting technique. The models are fitted with bracelets extending this jewellery lacework theme, or with brightly coloured brushed fabric straps. The earrings and rings reflect the subtle curves of the watch, while the necklaces are graced with delicately openworked interlacing motifs.

Jewellery expertise & Creative boldness

The Precious Lace collection supremely embodies technical virtuosity dedicated to resolutely modern artistry, testifying to the broad stylistic repertoire of the Geneva-based House. Chopard creations belong to the finest Haute Joaillerie tradition and showcase the artistic skills of top craftsmen: wax-sculpting experts, jewellers, stone-cutters, gem-setters and polishers. From lines to volumes, from goldsmithing to cutting precious stones, they push the boundaries of feasibility and combine their talents to breathe life into the most beautiful jewellery. While these creations involve classic expertise and faithfully safeguarded traditions, they are also nurtured by exceptional inspiration and boldness, vividly demonstrating the major role played by Chopard on the contemporary Haute Joaillerie scene. Collections such as Animal World or Fleurs d’Opales reveal an impressive creative vitality as well as the unbridled imagination of the company’s Co-President and Artistic Director, Caroline Scheufele – the driving force behind the development of the Chopard Haute Joaillerie collections.

Peerless skills, the guarantee of exceptional creations

On the occasion of the Paris Couture Week, Chopard presented its latest creations from the Precious Lace collection. Designed as an exquisite gold and gemstone lacework, this collection was imagined by Caroline Scheufele as a perfect alliance between Haute Couture and High Jewellery. Timeless design enables Chopard to set its unique seal on a line epitomising its expertise and mastery of the jewellery-making art.
A sparkling diamond lacework reveals the sensuality of the skin it adorns. Dazzling precious coloured stones twinkle in the light of a ballroom's crystalline chandeliers, for an evening full of promise with the stellar radiance of a High Jewellery set in all its resplendent majesty. Chopard has drawn both the inspiration and the supremely graceful elegance of its High Jewellery signature from the magic of festive evenings and whirling gowns. Peerless allure, an unparalleled sense of light and motion; Precious Lace symbolises the quintessence of classic jewellery expertise and faithfully preserved traditions, nurtured by a new vision and exceptional creative boldness. These creations invite us to explore a fascinating universe of contemporary jewellery, illuminated by the energy and the visionary talent of Caroline Scheufele.

Reinventing icons

Precious Lace sets the stage for precious intertwining patterns, where the radiance and power of precious stones reveal their aesthetic marvels. The result is a true ‘goldsmith’s wardrobe’, in which the delicacy of openworked fabric echoes the immaterial lightness of the gemsetting as well as the architectural lines of this collection, weaving subtle ties between the world of Haute Couture and that of High Jewellery. These harmonious and light lines, classical yet sophisticated, have become the unmistakable signature of the Maison, embodying both its jewellery expertise and its creative genius. Among the creations composing this varied repertoire is a majestic diamond and tanzanite set made up of a necklace, a ring and matching earrings. Another necklace unfurls its diamond lacework across a delicate cleavage, enhanced by the radiance of seven pear-shaped diamonds. The gaze also marvels at a remarkable diamond and ruby set comprising a pair of chandelier earrings and a flamboyant choker whose lace-like diamond structure is dotted with heart-shaped rubies.
 

High Jewellery

The most spectacular High Jewellery pieces are conceived in the heart of Chopard’s Geneva workshops. Drawing on its creative vision and the jewellery-making tradition of the Scheufele family, the Maison has steadily developed its unique High Jewellery craftsmanship. From designs to production, artisans combine their skills to give shape to authentic works of art, where traditional craftsmanship meets cutting-edge technologies. These exceptional creations call upon the entire range of High Jewellery professions, be they designers, wax sculptor-jewellers, jewellers, gem-cutters, gemsetters or polishers. Together they give life to the most spectacular creations. Combining more than 30 rare skills under a single roof is a unique asset that the Scheufele family carefully nurtures, and that allows for the transmission of expertise from generation to generation.
