The Queen of Kalahari: The story of this stone is a journey through what makes Chopard so very singular and special, its artistic vivacity and technical virtuosity.
Images by Chopard.
The discovery of The Queen of Kalahari, this exceptional 342-carat stone of perfect colour and absolute purity, has given rise to a set of 23 diamonds – The Garden of Kalahari – of which five weigh over 20 carats and each of the main stone cuts – cushion, brilliant, heart, emerald and pear – is represented.
Drawing upon the virtuosity cultivated in the field of artistic craft that has forged Chopard’s reputation, six fabulous pieces of jewellery have emerged from the High Jewellery workshops of the Maison.
‘…this exceptional 342-carat stone of perfect colour and absolute purity…’
The collection alone represents almost a full year’s work: thousands of hours lavished on this endeavour by the eyes, heart and hands of the Chopard jewellery artisans and gemsetters.
The Garden of Kalahari collection is entirely built around the idea of a jewellery lacework, like diamond guipure lace with a luminous cut-out motif.
