Paris, France – For Fall Winter 2015/16 Chopard proposes an exquisite selection of creations from the Red Carpet collection. Within each piece there is a delicate sense of exceptional purity emitting from the large stones. Among them we find a pair of earrings set with extremely rare and breath-taking, non-oiled, pear-cut Columbian emeralds weighing 33 and 35 carats respectively. This is an exceptional pairing of two cushion-cut diamonds weighing a whopping 30 carats each and set as ear pendants. There is a sumptuous 60-carat sapphire set as a ring.
Also Chopard has created a capsule collection featuring six exceptional floral inspired rings. The black opal is what powers the collection. It is represented as the centerpiece of splendid garden. They combine titanium or zirconium with sapphires, amethysts, tsavorites, rubies, spinels and black diamonds.
MORE ON THE COLLECTION
On the first ring, a spectacular 24.3ct black opal presides in the centre of a titanium latticework of petals, delicately chiselled and set with purple sapphires and amethysts. Tsavorites set with 18ct white gold extend the body of the ring in a vibrant harmony of colour. The second ring plunges the eye into an enchanting blue magic. A 20ct oval opal is exquisitely highlighted by diamond-set pistils and extended by finely veined blue titanium petals, while the body of the ring continues the spell with a harmonious arrangement of tsavorites, lazulites and brown diamonds. The third creation features an oval 9ct black opal featuring the much sought-after flaming red play-of-colour, resoundingly echoed in the black rhodium-plated white gold pistils set with rubies and purple sapphires. The petals, made of blackened zirconium, are set with pink spinels. The body of the ring in interlaced rose and white gold is set with black diamonds. The petals of each ring are mobile, creating a vibrantly realistic effect.
