Chopard shines at opening ceremony at Cannes Film Festival
The red carpet has been rolled out, the photographers have
elbowed their way into the best slots, the yachts are bobbing in
the bay and the sun is shining. Yes, it's Cannes Film Festival once
again and only a few days into the two week long spectacle and it's
clear from the opening ceremony alone that glamour is making a
comeback with Eva Herzigova wearing Chopard's
dazzling diamond necklace that is a tribute to the greatest glamour
puss of them all, Marilyn Monroe.
The Chopard bib style diamond necklace in honour of Marilyn
stole the show and a good deal of the sunlight as its rays bounced
off the hundreds of diamonds that cascaded down Eva Herzigova's
neck. The Marilyn Monroe Tribute Set is made up of over 151
carats of diamond beads, 30 carats of heart shaped diamonds
and an assortment of almost 19 carats of assorted diamonds. That's
enough to many any girl purr. Read more about this singular
