Luxury jeweller Chopard has created a collection
of fairy-tale proportions, a Haute Joaillerie
collection inspired by Walt Disney's Princesses.
These magical one-off pieces are currently on
display at the Iconic Harrods in Knightsbridge,
London.
C
aroline Scheufele, Co-President and Artistic
Director of Chopard interprets the key
characteristics of globally renowned Disney
Princesses Ariel, Belle, Cinderella Jasmine, Mulan,
Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, SnowWhite and
Tiana in the ten-piece collection, which comprises of a
selection of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and hairpieces.
Being a partner of the famous Cannes Film Festival and
known for their close ties with the movie industry,
Chopard is no stranger to the film world which has led
the brand to its next realm – the magical world of the
Disney Princess. Caroline Scheufele tells Simply Abu
Dhabi how the Disney characters have been a point of
inspiration long before this collaboration: “I have always
loved the world of fantasy and honoured the relationship
that Chopard has with the film industry. The world of
Walt Disney has often been an inspiration for a variety of
Chopard pieces and I am very happy to have been given
the opportunity to design the famous Princesses’ pieces
of jewellery. Cinderella, SnowWhite, Rapunzel…and all
the other ones have been a great source of inspiration for
me, giving birth to this new elegant yet playful collection
of Haute Joaillerie– a perfect expression of the Chopard
aesthetic.”
Description of the pieces:
Cinderella is a tale of triumphant reward and good
fortune. Inspired by this Chopard has created a pair of
earrings to compliment not only Cinderella’s tale but also
her classic beauty. The earrings with dazzling diamonds,
a singular flower on each with a white pearl and pear-
shaped aquamarine drop. This piece embodies a discreet
allure while remaining tantalisingly irresistible.
Pocahontas famously sings about the ‘colours of the
wind’ and the bracelet displays just that, with a breath-
taking colour palette. A Native American Princess,
Pocahontas’s bracelet is distinctly tribal. However the
juxtaposition of vibrant colours is what makes this piece
so striking. There is an intricate union of rubies, pink and
blue sapphires, paraibas tourmalines, amethysts and
diamonds. Through this piece, Chopard unleashes its
playful and adventurous nature, much in line with
Pocahontas’s personality.
