Chopard Cannes Red Carpet Jewels 2013

Chopard hints at what to expect from its sensational new collection of Red Carpet jewels, which will be making their debut at the Cannes Film Festival 2013.


With the Cannes Film Festival just around the corner, we offer you a sneak peek at some of the Chopard jewels that you may spot celebrities wearing on the red carpet this year. Chopard's annual Red Carpet collection of high jewels is so-called because the pieces are premiered for the first time at the Cannes Film Festival. For 2013 - the 15th anniversary of Chopard's sparkling presence at the festival - the theme is romance.

Artistic Director of Chopard and Co-President Caroline Scheufele pays a tribute to great love stories, in particular those seen on the silver screen. "Love is universal," says Caroline, "It illuminates women's beauty, like a beautiful piece of jewellery. I very much wanted to pay tribute to the finest sentiments. The Red Carpet collection is thus adorned in shimmering colours, red accents… like the fire of passion and heart-shaped precious stones, one of my favourite cuts."

Hence the dreamy lilac-hued kunzite and the heart-shaped Paraiba stone set into impressive rings. I tried on the poppy ring at Baselworld and its petals, shimmering with rubies, tremble with each movement of the hand bringing to life the diamonds, 700 rubies, 640 tsavorites and 168 emeralds that embellish this one-of-a-kind bloom.

The star of the show is a diamond choker-style necklace in white gold, set with a 5ct pear-cut diamond and 284 rose-cut diamonds totalling almost 183ct, which is as romantic as a fairytale. Like the Marilyn Monroe necklace worn last year by Eva Herzgova, high choker-style necklaces seem to be in vogue. I will be looking out for these jewels on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and will keep you posted on all that I see.

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.
