Founded by Louis-Ulysse Chopard in 1860, Chopard is one of only a few select luxury brands to offer high and fine jewellery collections, plus iconic watches. The family-owned Swiss firm is synonymous with innovation and creativity, making Chopard jewellery the perfect partner for the Cannes Film Festival. Since 1998, Chopard has sponsored the festival and become world famous for its Cannes jewellery. Ever year Chopard launches a Red Carpet jewellery collection of one-of-a-kind creations, and the Maison is also responsible for the design of the Palme d'Or trophy - the highest prize awarded at the festival. In recent years, Chopard has made a commitment to sustainability by announcing its journey to sustainable luxury in collaboration with Livia Firth of Eco-Age, unveiling a Green Carpet collection of high jewellery aimed to set an example in promoting ethical jewellery. All pieces in the collection, together with several watches, are created from Fairmined gold. Chopard also has a playful side, revealed in its Animal World collection featuring tropical fish necklaces and butterfly bracelets. Another string to its fine jewellery bow is the Chopard Happy Diamonds collection of pendants, rings, necklaces and watches, while the Chopard Happy Sport watch, with mobile diamonds twirling playfully around the dial, is still enjoying success after more than 20 years.
