Stacy Martin, Doina Ciobanu and Calu Rivero joined Livia and Colin Firth and Caroline Scheufele, co-president of Chopard, in Cannes, at an event in recognition of Chopard’s commitment to sustainability and social justice.
“Since we began this process we have seen just how our clients appreciate the stories behind the jewellery they love. True luxury is understanding provenance. As a family run business, it is so important to know that the materials we use, from gold to diamonds to coloured gemstones, come from suppliers who share our same values.” Caroline Scheufele, co-president and creative director, Chopard.
Guests at the event were treated to a private viewing of this year’s iconic Palme D’Or. Especially created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, this year’s award is crafted from ethical gold certified Fairmined and features diamonds from RJC certified suppliers.
Also on display was the wonderful Garden of Kalahari. This exquisite high jewellery set comprising a necklace, earrings, rings, a bracelet and a watch is crafted from one single 342ct rough diamond of the most perfect purity, the Queen of Kalahari. Discovered in Botswana in Lucara’s Karowe mine, the Queen of Kalahari story has captured imaginations across the jewellery industry, with every step of its journey assessed by Eco-Age using the GCC Principles of Sustainable Excellence.
The next chapter: Chopard High Perfumery Collection
The lunch celebrated new stories too. Chopard’s new High Perfumery Chopard Collection, Avant-Première, a limited edition fragrance begins the next chapter in the The Journey to Sustainable Luxury, Chopard’s multi-year business sustainability strategy. Four stunning fragrances that support and promote Chopard’s idea of luxury: a unique alliance of beauty, excellence, pleasure and ethical values.
