Chopard presents a new jewellery watch, crafted in ethical 18-carat white gold and entirely set from dial to bracelet with emeralds and diamonds. Aptly named Esperanza, it is the first model in the new Red Carpet Collection.
Emerald has been greatly coveted since Antiquity and legend indeed has it that Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, was extremely fond of this stone that evokes Nature’s fresh bloom each spring time. Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie artisans have chosen to highlight this unique gem in the aptly named Esperanza jewellery watch.
Entirely crafted in ethical 18-carat white gold, it glows with the fire of more than 41 carats of Zambian emeralds spectacularly arranged in a mixture of pear-shaped and round cuts, complemented by glittering diamonds. It took the Maison’s artisans more than 515 hours of work to complete this jewellery masterpiece.
The Esperanza watch is part of the impressive Red Carpet Collection, the Haute Joaillerie collection that Caroline Scheufele designs each year as part of Chopard’s historic partnership with the Cannes Film Festival.
It annually offers a number of jewellery creations exactly corresponding to the age of the Festival, meaning it will comprise no less than 74 creations this year. The Esperanza watch is the inaugural piece in this new collection, which will once again reveal the creative genius and daring of Chopard Haute Joaillerie.
