Before the glamour of the Cannes Film Festival, months before to be precise, Chopard is busy working away to bring Caroline Scheufele’s whimsical and glamorous designs to life with some of the world’s most precious stones and materials for what will constitute the Red Carpet Collection presented each year at the festival. When we were at the Chopard Terrace, I squealed with delight when Val, our friend at Chopard, brought out a black tray containing the flowering poppy necklace set with 9.2 carats of rubies on the petals and sprays of golden wheat waving out the bottom. I instantly remembered watching the craftsmen back in Geneva working on this months earlier, the proud way they demonstrated how the necklace bends and moves, and how they will eventually shape and polish it into that Chopard perfection. Here is the journey of one of the 66 Red Carpet pieces as it makes its way from Geneva to Cannes…
