Chopard’s Happy Diamonds collection was created in the 1970’s and remains one of the company’s staple collections today.
These pieces, each set with free moving diamonds under glass, are instantly recognisable.
Happy Diamonds were created when designer Ronald Kurowski was taking a walk through the Black Forest in Germany when he stumbled upon a waterfall. He was mesmerised by the sight of the tiny water droplets bursting out and catching the daylight, reflecting all the colours of the rainbow. This sparked an idea that diamonds should not be constricted by settings and shanks, but rather set free to enable them to sparkle in their natural, dazzling radiance.
Lot 481 in The Jewellery Auction is a pair of Chopard Happy Diamonds earrings. Set with square diamond set frames housing a bezel set round brilliant cut carat diamond, these diamonds dance under the glass as the wearer moves.
If you fancy doubling up and adding another Chopard accessory, then look no further than lot 482. The openwork pendant is beautifully delicate and sits upon an adjustable chain.
