Co-president of Chopard, Caroline Scheufele, has always been passionate about championing sustainability causes. Scheufele sources for raw materials from companies that practice fair trade. The Chopard official webpage states: “Aware of the social and environmental challenges that surround the jewellery industry, as a family owned business, Chopard has always strived to work in a way that is respectful of people and the environment.”

With that in mind, this year’s collection celebrates the environment — along with its flora and fauna — by choosing “Nature” as the main theme for this 13th collection. The approach is by drawing on the expertise and ingenuity cultivated by the Artisans of the Maison to craft a series of necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets made of precious stones. Their original designs depicting animals and plants look even more realistic than the models in nature on which they are based.
