Chopard Celebrates Anniversary With Animal-Themed Collection

Luxury watch and jewellery manufacturer Chopard is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a 150-piece animal-themed Haute Joaillerie collection called Animal World. The animal theme was chosen by Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele, the Geneva-based company’s co-president and artistic director. It features unexpected animals – including hippopotamuses, seahorses and rats – and gemstones such as kunzites, moonstones, Paraiba tourmalines, pearls, quartz. One standout piece, a bib necklace called The Clownfish, took 750 hours to complete and is set with 2,160 stones including diamonds, aquamarines, moonstones, quartz, topaz and sapphires.
