Enchanting Whimsy: Chopard's Latest High Jewellery Collection Inspired by Fairy Tales

Chopard’s artistic director and co-president Caroline Scheufele has once again captivated the luxury world with her latest high jewelry collection, inspired by the enchanting world of fairy tales. True to her annual pledge since 2007, Scheufele has designed several pieces equal to the edition number of the Cannes International Film Festival, which Chopard has sponsored since 1998. This year, for the festival's 77th edition, she has introduced 77 unique designs, each reflecting the magical theme of Contes de Fées (Fairy Tales).



The pieces were adorned on the red carpet by stars throughout the festival which continued until May 25. Scheufele's designs ingeniously blend realism with fantasy, portraying fairies and natural elements in whimsical settings. She employs rare and hard-to-source gems in lavish quantities, combined with bold colour schemes to create pieces that are as unbelievable as they are exquisite.


A notable shift from Chopard's usual gold-focused designs is the incorporation of titanium. This material allows for the creation of large-scale pieces that remain light enough to wear comfortably. Titanium can be tinted in various colours through anodization, enhancing the vibrant aesthetics of the gems it surrounds or serving as a standalone colour element. The collection also features Fairmined gold, emphasizing Chopard's commitment to ethical practices.


Here’s a sneak peek at eight of the quirkiest pieces from this year's Red Carpet collection:
