Contes de Fées

CHOPARD RED CARPET COLLECTION: In May of each year, Chopard's Haute Joaillerie workshops showcase the full extent of their creativity and expertise. Designed by Caroline Scheufele to adorn actresses on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival – which Chopard has been serving as official partner since 1998 – the Red Carpet Collection has established itself over the decades as the most eagerly awaited event in the Maison's jewellery calendar. This year, 77 creations inspired by the world of Fairy Tales – ‘Contes de Fées’ – will enchant La Croisette. An array of moving and tender, amusing and quirky, consistently precious creations will exude supreme elegance in a world of dreamy wonderment.

Around world, in every culture and at every stage in life, fairy tales are part of our collective imagination. These fabulous stories, often based on popular folklore, invite us to daydream and fling open the doors of our imagination. Enchanted forests, faraway kingdoms, talking animals, fantastic creatures with magical powers: these are the kind of childhood reminiscences that have inspired Chopard’s Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele to create a brilliant and highly personal interpretation.

A ravishing, heavenly fairy spreading her graceful mother-of-pearl wings. She is at the centre of an airy, immaculate tiara, surrounded by a shower of stars and diamond droplets. With a wave of her magic wand, she is transformed into a brooch.

A sculptural necklace inspired by a majestic oak tree symbolising strength and power as well as hosting a multitude of small animals, insects and birds – a tale in itself. It mingles titanium leaves set with tsavorites; ravishing flowers featuring clusters of flamboyant yellow briolette-cut sapphires; along with sculpted and then tinted titanium tassels.

An enchanting mushroom ring in ethical rose gold. Its delicate, finely ribbed cap is entirely set with white, orange, cognac and brown diamonds, skilfully arranged in a cut and colour gradient.

Two mischievous woodland fairies, seated on tassels set in the centre of large titanium oak leaf earrings.

A titanium sprig of lily of the valley, with its delightful diamond-set bell-shaped flowers and tiny yellow ethical gold pistils, designed to be worn as a brooch.

A long multicoloured sautoir necklace appears adorned with a highly creative pendant. A flower of rubellites, tsavorites and coloured diamonds blossoms at the heart of a pristine rock crystal. Surrounding the crystal are nine individually hand-crafted titanium flowers.

Butterfly earrings in ethical white gold set with two pear-shaped aquamarines. Symbolising a light, carefree spirit, butterflies are foragers that sow the seeds of life and pollinate flowers.

On the body of a ring in ethical yellow gold, two delightful little frogs in titanium set with pear-shaped emeralds support a crown set with rubellites and white and yellow diamonds. At the centre of this coveted attribute of royalty sits a magnificent 17.7-carat round-cut rubellite.
