SINGAPORE (May 29): Since the 60th anniversary of the Cannes International Film Festival — held in 2019 — Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie workshops have been creating a special collection for the festival. This year, co-president and artistic director of Chopard Caroline Scheufele and the initiator of its Journey to Sustainable Luxury, has decided to celebrate the environment along with its flora and fauna by choosing nature as the main theme of the collection. Here are some of the pieces that would have been adorned on the necks, ears and hands of celebrities, personalities and the many who attend high-octane events.

A study in nature
For Chopard’s 150th anniversary celebration in 2010, Caroline Scheufele designed 150 Haute Joaillerie creations composing the Animal World collection. This year, the theme continues as artisans of the maison craft a series of necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets made of precious stones. The designs depict animals and plants that are as realistic as the real thing.
