Chopard recently announced its latest big screen role as official jeweller 'Diana' the movie, a royal biopic about the late Princess of Wales that opens in cinemas this September. In the trailer for the film, actress Naomi Watts, who plays the troubled princess, wears one-off high jewellery necklaces and classic earrings, chosen by the Swiss jeweller to reflect Diana's inimitable style.

Stills of the film have been released, which show Naomi recreating famous moments in Diana's life. These include the day she stepped out in Australia, shortly after her divorce from Prince Charles, wearing an electric-blue Versace dress, and the fateful evening she was ushered into a Mercedes outside The Ritz in Paris, surrounded by paparazzi.

For authenticity's sake, it was up to costume designer Julian Day to source pieces that Diana herself might have chosen. "I realised that I was going to need magnificent jewellery," Day points out. "When the opportunity arose to work with Chopard, I knew this was going to be possible."

Chopard put together a coherent collection of jewels that mirrored Diana's style, including a pair of oval sapphire earrings reminiscent of her engagement ring and a high jewellery necklace consisting of three rows of 92 diamonds. Classic yet extraordinary pieces, they capture Diana's grace and elegance perfectly.

Caroline Scheufele, Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard, was thrilled to work on the film. "She was a person blessed with extraordinary charisma and great elegance, both in her personality and her style. After having worked on the film 'Nine' in 2009, this new partnership was exciting, and even more so because Naomi Watts is a fantastic actress."
