Chopard Baselworld 2019 part I
New creations for Big-Hearted women
Tender and playful, mischievous and generous, iconic and so very joyful: the heart is the symbol of absolute vitality that pulsates within Chopard creations. With it, the Maison is enriching its iconic Happy Hearts collection with new cocktail pendants and original earrings in 18-carat rose gold and mother-of-pearl, onyx, diamonds, malachite and red stone. Colourful new talismans for the Big-Hearted women so deeply cherished by Chopard.
Heart bouquets to be worn around the neck
Within just a few years, the Happy Hearts collection has become a Chopard jewellery icon, distilling its aura through a series of talisman jewellery pieces sprinkled with coloured hearts and hearts carrying dancing diamonds. It now welcomes two new generously sized cocktail pendants in 18-carat rose or white gold, on which mother-of-pearl, malachite or diamond-pavé hearts of different sizes are gracefully assembled into a bouquet. Among them is the same signature symbol in a smaller size. Equipped with a diamond dancing between two sapphire crystals, this stands out as a signature of the Maison Chopard, which gave rise in 1976 to the original Happy Diamonds concept. Emblematic of Joie de Vivre, its infinite dance evokes the movements of every woman’s heart, both in terms of their generosity and their most intimate emotions. This charming pendant comes in two sizes and is the ideal complement to a cocktail outfit as well as a casual chic daytime look.
Leading the heart into a pas de deux
Driven by the generous creativity of the Maison, the artisans of the Chopard workshops have also designed new 18-carat rose or white gold earrings with two hearts assembled in a graceful pas de deux. Gently resting against the earlobe, a first heart, with a playful dancing diamond whirling in its centre, echoes another larger heart positioned beneath the ear and set with diamonds, mother-of-pearl, onyx, malachite or red stone. The two hearts are ingeniously connected by a gold rod hidden behind the earlobe, giving the visual impression that the lower heart is flying under the ear. And because Chopard likes to give women the opportunity to play with their jewellery, the small dancing diamond heart can also be worn alone as a stud earring. These two-in-one new earrings sum up the spirit of the collection: precious yet light, versatile yet faithful to its style, colourful yet also discreet.

Happy Hearts bags
In keeping with its commitment to good craftsmanship, Chopard echoes its watch and jewellery creations in a range of leather goods that are all about detail. The Happy Hearts collection welcomes two new women’s bags showcasing the charms of the Maison’s iconic Big Heart.
Chopard leather goods welcome a cipria-coloured crossbody and a pink shoulder bag, both made from the finest quality calfskin. Keenly aware that good craftsmanship primarily depends on selecting high-quality materials, the Maison works exclusively with full-grain leather, the noblest part of a hide.
Shoulder-worn thanks to their rose gold-toned metal chain, both bags afford the delight of walking with your hands free and thus enjoying unrestricted movement – exactly the kind of comfort deeply cherished by the Maison and characterising all its creations. The chain can also be adjusted to form two handles for a hand-held option.
The Maison’s signature monogrammed “C” in rose gold-toned metal appears on the clasp, perfectly matching the shape of the heart emblematic of the Happy Hearts collection. Jewellery, talismans or havens of privacy, these bags are nonetheless a key fashion accessory, an essential part of a feminine wardrobe and a loyal day-to-day companion. Their vibrant colours will naturally enhance the appearance of the women who choose them.

Happy Hearts Wings
The butterfly effect
The delicacy of fluttering butterfly wings, the strength of a breath of life. In the beginning were dancing diamonds, spinning inside a heart caught up in an endlessly graceful waltz. Through the motion inspired by the women who wear them, they transform the world. More than a motto, “Little Diamonds Do Great Things” is a way of life for the Happy Hearts collection – the beating heart of Chopard – which now welcomes a new collection featuring the butterfly: Happy Hearts Wings. A free and daintily airy spirit appearing in a complete set comprising exquisite necklaces, bracelets, earrings and an 18-carat rose gold and mother-of-pearl ring.
Free and generous, the butterflies take flight
The scrolling patterns of its wings trace a heart in the air. The butterfly, the ultimate emblem of lightness and transformation, has infused all its delicacy and symbolic strength into Happy Hearts Wings. It finds exquisitely refined expression in this new interpretation of the Happy Hearts collection, echoing the symbols of the Maison Chopard. Two mother-of-pearl hearts, arranged like butterfly wings, are suspended from a heart with a dancing diamond nestling inside. The perfect balance of this jewellery creation is a whispered flutter of imagination unfurled, a talisman motif interpreted as a complete 18-carat rose gold set. It thus adorns both a pendant and sautoir necklace, a bracelet, a bangle, a pair of earrings, and a ring, alternating this motif with hearts of mother-of-pearl and yet others with dancing diamonds. An irresistible collection to which the mother-of-pearl, delicately drawn from the heart of shells, lends a precious softness.
The butterfly effect
What feats do the fluttering of wings convey? Within the infinitely small lies the potential for infinite greatness. Such is the butterfly effect: “Little Diamonds Do Great Things”. At Chopard, Joie de Vivre is a founding principle, a creative élan, a shared momentum. At the heart of each and every daily gesture, this movement pulsates and brings life to the ever-renewed ballet of dancing diamonds, constantly reinvented by women, just as they reinvent themselves. It symbolises the tremendous vitality and infinite power harboured by those who unstintingly give of themselves – the Big-Hearted women so cherished by Chopard. This delicate yet potent driving force takes flight at the heart of Happy Hearts Wings, then spreads its wings and unfurls around the world. A special gesture, a generous token of caring or a radiant smile lights up the entire universe.
