Chopard Celebrates with the A-List


Jewelry events thrown by luxury design houses are often the best parties for bauble gawking, and no one does it better than Chopard.

Celebrating 150 years of sparkling style and the launch of their couture collection, Animal World (see an earlier post for details), the Swiss watch and jewelry maker threw a soiree last night at Manhattan’s Frick Museum where A-list beauties mingled with high society – all dripping in Chopard diamonds.


Gwyenth Paltrow looked lovely in a long lace Antonio Berrardi gown with Chopard’s fancy shape diamond chandeliers set in platinum (24.2 carats) and a rose cut diamond ring set in platinum (13.3 carats).

Kate Hudson sparkled in a grey Lanvin number with Chopard’s chalcedony, sapphire, diamond and iolite chandeliers, a multicolor pearl (558 carats) and diamond (54 carats) sautoir and south sea pearl, pink and black diamond ring. Stunning.

Christina Ricci worked a vintage Kermit green Galanos gown with Chopard’s fancy shape diamond earrings set in 18kt white gold (33 carats).

And Claire Danes looked lovely in Lanvin with air-shaped diamond chandelier earrings set in platinum (20 carats) and a paraiba tourmaline and diamond bracelet set in 18kt white gold (131 carats).

Finally model, Eugenia Silva, rocked Chopard’s black and white diamond swallow necklace set in 18kt rose gold ( 25 carats) and black and white swallow diamond earrings (13.6 carats) from the 150th Anniversary Collection, Animal World.

Blinded by all the ice? It gets better. The New York Times reported that one lucky socialite had to double up on the diamonds when her husband surprised her by purchasing a ‘ram’-inspired Chopard necklace from the Animal World collection for, oh, a mere $250,000 – so she had to throw it over the $700,000 diamond bib number she was (sigh) already wearing.

I’m going to lose a lot of sleep thinking about her predicament. No, really.

Gucci Discovers The Dane

Gucci has just announced the new ‘face’ of the jewelry campaign. That means they’re laying down some serious money on one of young Hollywood’s best in the hope she’ll attract some new Gucci followers. Eschewing Britney and Lindsey for some strange reason, they’ve instead chosen Clare Danes as the symbol of what Gucci jewelry represents.
(If you’re curious, which I was, apparently Gucci is all about being passionate, independent and having a strong character. They forgot to mention it’s all about having money.)
Gucci ain’t the only company that has a famous face as the ‘muse’ for their gems. British rock-maker Stephen Webster recently zeroed in on Christina Aguilera as his muse. Me wonders who’s next – any thoughts?
