Noah’s Ark never looked this good, jewelry hounds. The luxury watch stalwart and red carpet staple, Chopard, is celebrating their 150th Anniversary with a dazzling array of 150 unique animal-inspired pieces – their largest and most diverse collection devoted to a single theme.
And what a theme it is.
In true Chopard style, the pieces required 20,000 hours of work and involved setting 250,000 stones.
“I really wanted to make them like sculptures,” Chopard co-president and artistic director Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele told WWD of the pieces. “If people want to buy one, they will have to reserve it and get it at the end of November.”
Thankfully, they’ve created a microsite devoted to the effort, where you can gawk at over a dozen of the drool-worthy gems up for grabs.
Here are some of my favs (Check out the whopper of a yellow diamond in the turtle ring. Slow and steady wins this race!):
