Often, when you think of Chopard, you think of a classic collection which encompasses free moving diamonds under glass. The Happy Diamonds collection was born in the 1970’s and remains one of their staple collections today.
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, magnificently sparkling and 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 396 in the 2 July Jewellery Auction is a happy diamonds pendant. Set with three free moving diamonds, they will dance along the glass as you move. Estimate £1000 - £1500.
The final Chopard item is lot 444, a happy diamonds cuff formed by a row of, yellow, rose and white gold where the floating diamond is set within a crystal heart. Estimate £1000 - £2000.
