Chopard Imperiale Jewellery
presents a new collection of jewellery called Imperiale that adds
to the growing family of Imperiale watches. Made of rose or white
gold, these new jewels are for the young at heart with their
voluptous shapes and use of rich colours and seductive curves.
The main feature of these jewels that include varying length
necklaces with pendants, bracelets, ring and earrings is the use of
the 'Imperiale' motif that is a stylised four-sided flower shape
inspired by the traditional embroideries used to decorate the gowns
and sumptuous fabrics we associate with Imperial grandeur, be it
French, Russian or even from an imaginary land. The symmetrical
shape of this flower motif is also found on the dials of the
Imperiale watches (read more by clicking here) introduced last
year after a collection from the 1990's found a new lease of life.
This floral form is worked into different volumes that at times can
be dainty and delicate or bold and forthright.
The open-work motifs allows for glimpses of smooth facetted,
ripe and almost bulging amethysts, a stone whose rich colour is so
reminiscent of Empire and royal grandeur. Other versions include
the soft glow of pink quartz or chalcedony The rose gold adds to
the slightly antique feel of these jewels that wouldn't be amiss on
a modern day Empress. Versions of the jewels without the amethyst
convey a carefree, younger look as the smooth curves of the flower
motifs joined to create hollow, light as air forms that catch the
light and allow peeks at the smooth, warm skin below. The
diamond-set versions give an added grandeur to the jewels, but all
with a charming lightness of touch.
The feeling of youth and majesty mingle in this intriguing
collection that features 'sleeper' type earrings that nestle close
to the lobe as well as bracelets of slender chain and necklaces of
varying lengths. This new collection is spot on trend with its use
of precious coloured gem stones such as amethyst, pink quartz and
chaceldony as well as the juxtaposition of fine chain with big and
bold pendants and predominance of ear-hugging earrings.
