Chopard has made the Big Heart the emblem of the Maison, reinterpreting it in its collections as a recurrent reflection of its creativity and a distinctive token of its values. Chopard dedicates its Happy Hearts collection to every woman with a Big Heart, through creations worn like a visible talisman of happiness. Interpreted in a wide range of colours, Happy Hearts now welcome a new Tahitian mother-of-pearl version.
The heart, a Chopard signature
“If I were to associate Chopard with a motif, it would be a Big Heart because there is a family behind it”. It is in these terms that Caroline Scheufele, Co-President of Chopard, explains the importance of the values that have forged the shining reputation of the Geneva-based Maison: altruism, generosity and benevolence are the essential qualities governing the vibrant creativity and the taste for aesthetic wonderment cultivated in the ateliers of this family-run Maison. Above and beyond its stature as the symbol of lovers, it evokes the heart as a giver of life.
Happy Hearts, a visible talisman of happiness
The Happy Hearts collection undoubtedly embodies all that Chopard represents, through a perfect alliance between its Heart emblem and the iconic moving diamonds concept that has shaped the renown of the Maison. The Happy Hearts collection provides anchor points for moments of happiness by connecting them with objects that evoke fond memories whenever they are seen. These creations are a visible token of happiness, to be passed on from generation to generation as testimony to the happy moments when they were received as gifts. A cherished talisman for all women who share a sense of selflessness and generosity – all those with a Big Heart – each Happy Hearts model stems from Chopard’s subtle ability to capture fleeting and precious moments of life within a timeless object.
Tahitian mother-of-pearl hearts
The heart of these Happy Heart models takes on a protective role, welcoming a broad palette of colourful stones to give free rein to women’s imagination as they change jewellery in tune with their outfit, thereby perfectly matching the woman they wish to be each day. Thanks to the inventiveness of the Chopard workshops, a Tahitian mother-of-pearl interpretation now joins the existing versions in red, pink, blue, green and turquoise, along with the diamond, mother-of-pearl, onyx, malachite and tiger’s eye variations.
Precious and rare, delicate and iridescent, Tahitian mother-of-pearl is a noble material sourced from the treasures of the sea. Harvested from the heart of shells, it is a symbol of tenderness and love. Tahitian mother-of-pearl, enhanced by glowing 18-carat rose gold, makes its grand entrance into the collection with earrings and a matching bangle whose two ends are respectively tipped with a large mother-of-pearl heart and another smaller one featuring a moving diamond dancing between two sapphire crystals.
