Chopard Fleur d’Opales in Full Bloom
Joining the Fleur d’Opales capsule collection are three new creations by the Swiss luxury jeweler.
The first bloom of spring is especially worth the wait when it is the flowering of high jewelry. At the Paris Haute Couture Week January 2016, Chopard introduced three new creations to its mysterious haute joaillerie garden, handily beating the first flowers of the coming season. Joining the existing three pieces of the Fleur d’Opales capsule collection, these creations showcase the beauty of the magnificent and spellbinding opal.
The unique pieces, take us into the world of flora and fauna where the precious opal is teamed with sapphires, amethysts, tsavorites, rubies, spinels and black diamonds. This gem that has fascinated the world from the middle ages, is in fact mined from a traceable and sustainable supply by Aurora Gems, in the Australian outback.
The three new rings, carry a mixture of black and white opals and celebrate spring. In a first for the collection, one of the three rings features an impressive 14-carat white opal nestled amongst diamond-set titanium petals. The second (main picture) is a 10.7-carat black opal surrounded by tsavorites, pink sapphires and demantoid garnets. Rounding off the collection is a 9-carat black-opal. It sits in the middle of pistils made of engraved and brushed blue titanium and petals set with diamonds, pink sapphires and spinels. The flower is mounted on a ring that is set with demantoid garnets.
