Founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, the house of Chopard has created some of the most popular fine jewelry and Swiss precision timepieces including the popular Happy Diamonds Collection and the Tourbillon watch.
Controlled by the Chopard family until 1963, the firm remains privately owned, ensuring that the highest standards of technology and manufacturing can be continued. Today it stands as one of the last family-run watchmaking and jewelry companies creating not just some of the world’s most exquisite and memorable pieces, but also supporting arts, film and culture as a sponsor of the Cannes Film Festival and as the official timekeeper of the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco.
Steeped in high quality watchmaking, the company expanded to jewelry contributing to many of the most memorable modern day red carpet moments.
Consider the 342-carat Queen of Kalahari diamond earrings worn by Charlize Theron to the 2017 Oscars (the actress is an avid fan and supporter of the brand) or the 18k white ethical gold pear-shaped diamond transformer earrings, diamond choker and watch Rihanna wore from the Rihanna Loves Chopard high jewelry collection to the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The pop star has worn Chopard countless times, all of them significant and statement making. In 2017 she debuted the Rihanna Loves Chopard collection making the 150-year-old house relevant among today’s trend setters.
