London rolls out the red carpet for the Red Carpet Collection from Chopard

For a rare up-close glimpse of Chopard's 2014 Red Carpet Collection of high jewellery, head to one of Chopard's London boutiques before 18 August.

Chopard Red Carpet Collection earrings featuring pear-shaped ubellites surrounded by diamonds, set in rose gold (£POA).

London has rolled out the proverbial red carpet for the arrival of this year's Red Carpet Collection by Chopard. Select pieces from the stunning collection have been distributed between Chopard's flagship store on New Bond Street and the brand's boutiques in Selfridges and Harrods.

Consisting of 67 amazing high jewellery pieces, the collection is the latest outpouring of love and creativity in the ongoing romance between Chopard and the Cannes Film Festival. But why 67 pieces, you might ask? Because the number of pieces in each Red Carpet collection is equal to the number of years the event has been running, and 2014 marked the 67th edition of the Cannes Film Festival.

Since 1998, the jewellery house has been the official partner of the film festival, an event as renowned for its high-octane glamour as it is for its film previews. The Red Carpet Collection was first launched in 2007 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Cannes Festival and has since become an annual tradition.

Created by Caroline Scheufele, co-president and artistic director of Chopard, to exalt the beauty of the actresses who grace the red carpet, the collection showcases the extraordinary talent of the Swiss jewellery brand's team of artisans.

This year's Red Carpet jewels were inspired by the glamorous, voluptuous stars of the heyday of Italian cinema during the 1950s and 1960s. An impressive necklace comprised of black diamonds, sapphires and spinels is just one of the leading ladies in the collection. Other notable cast members visiting London for a short time only are the Chopard Red Carpet earrings with four perfect pink rubellites and the Chopard Red Carpet diamond feather earrings.

The Red Carpet jewels will only be on display until 18 August 2014. So hurry on down to one of the London stores to catch a rare up-close glimpse of this most dazzling collection.

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.
