This year it comprises of 64 original creations in honour of the 64th edition of the festival. The Red Carpet Collection 2011 will once again testify to Chopard’s considerable talents in the field of Haute Joaillerie. This season’s selection is distinguished by vibrant colours and refreshing charm. The world’s most glamorous festival provides Chopard with an opportunity to unveil some of its most brilliant creations, to the delight of both the stars that wear them and the public who admire them. Inspired by actresses and deliberately varied, the pieces in the Red Carpet Collection reflect a wide range of hopes and expectations.

The creations portray an infinite spectrum of forms and styles, often combining fine stones and precious gems within the same setting. Eager to offer the best of its expertise, Chopard draws upon the full measure of its diverse talents as well as on its long – established experience, mingling time – honoured gestures, cutting – edge tech – nologies and well – documented research, while taking its taste for excellence and novelty to ever greater heights. As a regular on the red carpet in Cannes for almost 15 years, Caroline Scheufele is well acquainted with the frenzy surrounding the famous mounting of the steps, and the tremendous impact of the vision of stars shown around the word during this magical ritual. Having developed friendships with many of these glamorous ladies, she also knows how important this moment is to them, as well as the type of jewellery they dream of wearing. Which is exactly why each year, in cooperation with the Design department, she does her utmost to dream up original unique pieces, so that each festival participant — regardless of the wearer being a legendary star or an up – and – coming actress — will find exactly the jewellery that best fits her personality and will highlight her beauty in a unique way.

The collection’s key pieces include a necklace and earrings set in emeralds and heart – shaped diamonds [ No. 60 ] that immediately catch the gaze. Like vines or a slender ivy garlands, this stunning creation appears to be entwined around the neck. The dark green of the emeralds acquires an even deeper and more mysterious aura

through its close encounter with diamonds. Gems are seen to gently caress the skin like fluttering leaves. The earrings, composed of a double drop bead, create the illusion of an all – emerald outline with a diamond shadow, as if the sunrays were constantly playing across the delightful creation.
