The Jewelry Insider

July 19, 2008


Everyone has their idea of what heaven is like. For some it’s angels, harps and flowing white robes. For others, it’s pearly gates, flowers and childhood pets. For me, it’s free-flowing wine, endless food and as many jewels as I can hold. I think my heaven just came to earth.

Fashion Week Daily reports on the latest Chopard offering to celebrate a ‘heavenly’ festival. Over in the Napa Valley, the Festival del Sole is taking place with everything a decadent blogger could wish for.

The Festival, which runs from July 12-20, offers concerts and presentations followed by five-star meals and select wines at the best gastronomical venues throughout Napa Valley. Why didn’t I know about this earlier?

Chopard, the luxury sponsor of the event, created a necklace and earring set that plays on the celebrated vineyards of the Valley. The grapevine motif jewelry set features a necklace containing 22 carats of white and colored diamonds and 445 carats of colored briolette gemstones set in 18 karat rose gold.

The earrings, also set in 18 karat rose gold, feature acolored diamonds and 144 carats of handpicked gemstones.

These really are some gourmet jewels.
