Five Golden Rings…

I remember as a child believing in the magic of Christmas, the workshop of wonder hidden away up north where anything you could dream of was possible, the jolly bearded man with rose-colored cheeks and a boisterous laugh who was there thinking of you and your special gift that would be just perfect. Now I’m all grown up and although Santa does not magically bring me diamond tiaras (yes, that happened) the magic of Christmas wishing is not lost. Sometimes in my fantasies I dream of delicate little items, future heirlooms for unnamed children, and they float under a glass jar, so close but you can’t touch it… all you can do is hint, hint, hint and hope that someone you love is nearby to lift the glass and pick your perfect gift.

This #hintingseason I’m dreaming of something that will last forever, a piece of LoveGold jewelry that can come with a story, one filled with White Christmas mornings and cuddled fireside nights…

What are you hoping for this Christmas?

Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~ George Eliot

There is a beauty in autumn entirely its own: the crispness of the air, the slow return of rosy cheeks, the crunch of leaves underfoot, the shimmer of change in the air. How do you go about capturing such a complex and stunning season?

When you are Chopard, you turn to your high jewelers. These amazingly talented craftsmen and women shaped an entire fall scene into an intricate, beautiful necklace – leaves shifting color, acorns growing nearly to the point of dropping, a gentle spider deftly building a web between two leaves. With colored diamonds set like cobblestones on the branch and tsavorite leaves glittering, the piece gives off a gentle shimmering glow, just like autumn mornings.

Here is an intimate look at the making of an autumn inspired piece for Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection from their artisan factory in Geneva to the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival.

Chopard Watchmaking

As I walked through the rooms of Chopard’s watchmaking house in Switzerland I was struck by the interesting balance between man and time. Here were the artisans, these specialized skilled craftsmen working with precious metals in parts so tiny my naked eye could not see it. They are making time, they are making something that counts it beat by beat, but they are doing it by hand and they are doing it over months. Many of these skilled hands dance around the piece: building it from part to part, polishing each layer until it gleams, checking and double-checking for any flaws, carefully putting each tiny component together under a magnifying glass. As the watch comes together, the viewer can only stand in awe at this delicate harmony of machine and man. In a world where technology continues to take over more and more of our lives, it’s hard to believe that humans still play such a large part in this, the art of time.

But this – this is how Chopard makes a watch.

Watching the stunning L.U.C. watches (named for the founder, Louis-Ulysse Chopard) come to life gave me so much appreciation for Chopard’s devotion to quality. It was inspiring to watch mere men & women put these intricate and complex pieces together, more than beautiful watches but award-winning, certified time pieces to be cherished forever.

Come with me as we watch Chopard make an art of time…

Show me the money! Power players don’t mess around when it comes to business or fashion. Strong lines, sharp tailoring, and her fierce stare stop us in our tracks, and her statement jewelry is just one more way she’s a sharp shooter.
