The Maison Chopard announces its collaboration with global superstar Rihanna to create the “Rihanna ♥ Chopard” collections.
Rihanna and Chopard’s Co-President and Creative Director Caroline Scheufele worked together, boosting their creative endeavours to design a High Jewellery and a Fine Jewellery collections that made both of them thrilled – a mixture of urban chic and classic glamour.
“I have always been in love with Chopard’s exquisite jewellery, so to actually design collections with them is something I still can’t believe,” says Rihanna. “It was a really incredible process and I learned so much! I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
“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,” says Caroline Scheufele. “With her unique style, she redefines the way people see and wear jewellery.”
The Rihanna ♥ Chopard High Jewellery collection evokes the star’s roots – the lush gardens of Barbados and the electricity of Carnival.
This collection will debut in May 2017, to contribute to the celebration of both the Festival de Cannes‘ 70th Anniversary, and of Chopard’s 20th Anniversary as the Festival’s Official Partner.
However, Rihanna already gave a preview of her creations during the recent Grammy Awards, by wearing a one-of-a-kind pair of floral inspired multi-coloured chandelier earrings and marquise-cut diamond solitaire ring.
Another piece from the High Jewellery collection was featured on Harper’s Bazaar’s March 2017 cover – a pair of transformable diamond earrings.
The Rihanna ♥ Chopard Fine Jewellery Collection, on the other hand, is defined by Chopard’s classic ice Cube shape, and it innovates in new designs and new materials, such as coloured ceramic.
Crafted from 18ct rose ethical gold certified Fairmined, the 9-piece capsule collection will be available with icy polished or diamond set gold cubes. The collection was revealed in April 2017 together with the release of global advertising campaign.
Pieces will be available in June with pre-orders online at www.chopard.com/us/rihanna-loves-chopard and Chopard boutiques starting Friday, April 7th. CC
