Chopard has unveiled its latest Red Carpet Collection of high jewellery, which will be debuted at the Cannes Film Festival 2014, beginning today.

For the last seven years, the jewellery house has set itself the challenge of producing the same number of high-jewellery pieces as the edition number of that year's festival. With 2014 being the 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, Chopard is presenting a collection of 67 jewels inspired by the glamorous, voluptuous stars of Italian cinema in the 1950s and 1960s.

A team of skilled artisans has worked tirelessly over the past 12 months to produce these one-of-a-kind creations, using a mixture of traditional techniques and cutting-edge technology.

Just like the silver screen, each jewellery collection has its leading lady, and this year's undisputed star is the Riviera set. Comprising a stunning Chopard diamond necklace and matching Chopard earrings featuring over 100 carats of brilliant-cut, marquise-cut and rose-cut pear-shaped diamonds, more than 1,000 hours of craftsmanship went into creating this masterpiece.

Chopard has been the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival since 1998 and first launched the Haute Joaillerie Red Carpet collection in 2007.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
