Baselworld 2016: Chopard Happy Dreams, A Celestial Journey

Chopard presents a new collection featuring its signature free-spinning diamonds. Inspired by clouds and borne upon the gentle wings of fanciful reveries, Happy Dreams takes the world’s most joyful diamonds on an ethereal fantastical journey.

Lightness, motion, inspiration and stunning horizons. ‘Looking skyward’ and ‘head in the clouds’: a whole new dreamy vocabulary and unprecedented feather-soft designs are making their entrance into the iconic Happy Diamonds collection. Floating amid ‘heavenly’ scenery, the famous moving diamonds continue their dazzling waltz with the Happy Dreams collection.

Joyful, whirling Happy Diamonds have been punctuating Chopard’s finest hours since 1976. Inspired by sunbeams glinting off the droplets of a waterfall, they quickly established themselves as a House icon, consistently expressing their playful, lively nature through countless different interpretations. 40 years later, Happy Dreams with its interwoven circles and its round, full curves introduces a new play on light. Inspired by clouds, the dreamy and romantic Happy Dreams jewelry creations invite the imagination to roam freely through the realms of space. One or three mobile diamonds dance around a first central circle surrounded by two or three other intertwining circles.

Jewelry version

This new jewelry collection sends diamonds spinning around an airily soft mother-of-pearl cocoon. It features a necklace, a long pendant, a ring and earrings composed of diamond-set white gold circles with a textured mother-of-pearl base. Against this shimmering background evoking the exquisite fluffiness of clouds, moving diamonds whirl between two sapphire crystals. This collection introduces new moving diamonds, set with prongs and enabling light to sparkle even more brightly upon the free-spirited diamonds. This setting technique further enhances the purity and nobility of the gemstones.

Light, pure lines

Happy Dreams jewelry models also come in a pure, open-worked version crafted from 18-carat rose or white gold, entirely polished or partially set with diamonds. The pendant, necklace, earrings and ring harbor one or three moving diamonds dancing between two sapphire crystals. Jewelry every bit as light and graceful as the clouds above.
