Chopard gives Uggie a very special Oscars night

Caroline Scheufele of Chopard designs a one-of-a-kind bow tie for Uggie the Dog's Oscar night.

Chopard Uggie Oscars 1

There was no question in the minds of audiences and Academy voters alike that when Jean DuJardin took home the Best Actor Academy Award for The Artist he owed at least half of that award to Uggie the dog - so much so that people around the world had already launched various campaigns on social media and beyond to have Uggie nominated for his very own Oscar.

Instead of an Academy Award on Sunday, Uggie the dog was given something very special indeed, when he wore a one-of-a-kind collar designed by Caroline Scheufele, Co-President and Artistic Director of Chopard. Uggie's gorgeously crafted Academy Award bow tie is made of 18ct yellow gold and satin with his name proudly adorning it, and will be auctioned off with all proceeds donated to The Amanda Foundation. Another was also designed and worn by Uggie at The Weinstein Company pre-Oscar party. Scheufele says "Knowing that Uggie is a rescue dog, it inspired me to create a unique piece to benefit an important cause".

Known for her passionate support of environmental causes and animal issues, as well as the love for her own seven dogs, Scheufele's unique way of adding that Chopard touch has made an already incredible year that much more special for this adorable little co-star.

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.
