While being in Cannes for the 67th Film Festival, I visited Chopard‘s rooftop terrace at the Hotel Martinez to explore the stunning Haute Joaillerie Red Carpet Collection 2014. The glamourous stars of the Cinecittà studios in Rome inspired the breathtaking jewelry pieces Caroline Scheufele designed this year. 67 unique creations bring back the voluptuous beauty of the actresses who lit up the heyday Italian cinema of the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Funnily enough, my outfit matched the decor and the amazing sapphires and diamonds perfectly. Isn’t that a sign?!
My look: Ruffle-trimmed striped ribbed-knit sweater and ruffle-trimmed polka-dot stretch-twill skinny pants, both by Emanuel Ungaro, blue suede fringe shoulder bag by Gucci and chunky turquoise suede sandals by Prada.
Here you see the highlight of the Red Carpet Collection 2014: the “Riviera” Necklace in 18ct white gold fully set with diamonds. This masterpiece required over 1000 hours of craftsmanship and totals over 100 carats of brilliant cut, marquise cut and rose cut pear shaped diamonds.
This amazing sapphire and diamond necklace doesn’t have a name yet. The lucky owner will get to baptize it. More from Cannes to be posted soon…
