Luxury Jeweler Chopard has collaborated with “Diamonds” singer Rihanna on an exclusive and limited edition Haute Joaillerie collection “Rihanna ♥ Chopard”. The international R&B star is frequently adorned in Chopard on the red carpet. Caroline Scheufele, Chopard’s Co-President and Creative Director, worked directly with the artist for the colorful collection inspired by the singer’s home, Barbados, with elements of the gardens and the vibrant spirit of Carnival. “Rihanna and I collaborated closely on the collections, so you can feel her unstoppable energy, strong creativity, and inherent sense of design in every piece. With her unique style, she redefines the way people see and wear jewelry,” Scheufele said in a statement.
The collection incorporates sensual floral motifs, as well as clean lines and geometric shapes set with diamonds and a wide range of colorful gemstones. A highlight of the collection are floral drop earrings set in 18-karat ethically sourced ‘Fairmined’ gold featuring 20 carats of fancy pear-shaped and brilliant cut diamonds. The collection will debut in May at the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, which in addition marks the 20th year of Chopard’s partnership with the festival. Rihanna has previously worn pieces from the collection, such as the floral earrings at the Grammy’s. “I have always been in love with Chopard’s exquisite jewelry, so to actually design collections with them is something I still can't believe,” says Rihanna in a press release issued by Chopard today. “It was a really incredible process and I learned so much! I can't wait for everyone to see it.”
