It has been a blossoming love affair between Chopard and singer and style icon Rihanna the last few years, and the duo finally officiated their relationship earlier this year with the Rihanna ♥ Chopard Haute Joaillerie Collection, when the fashionista strolled down the Cannes Film Festival red carpet bedazzled with a one-of-a-kind pair of floral-inspired multi-coloured chandelier earrings, and marquise-cut diamond solitaire ring, inspired by her island roots of Barbados and the celebration of Chopard’s 20th year as the official partner of the Cannes Film Festival.
Following the Rihanna ♥ Chopard Haute Joaillerie Collection is the limited-edition Rihanna ♥ Chopard Joaillerie Collection launched subsequently in April, featuring a nine-piece capsule defined by minimalist geometry shapes and sharp, clean lines. The linear rectangular motifs link frosty rose gold cubes, crafted from 18k rose ethical gold certified “Fairmined” (a label that guarantees respect for the mining community and the environment used in High Jewellery since 2013 for the Green Carpet collection and in Haute Horlogerie for L.U.C watches), with solid ceramic blocks in jungle green, a colour selected personally by Rihanna – a synergy of urban modernism and pure design to Chopard’s classic Ice Cube shape.
The love prevails till today with the new Chopard Ice Cube Pure collection, featuring the signature geometrical design originated in 1999, inspired by ice cubes to create a powerful and avant-garde collection of frosty watches or chilled jewellery models.
The new Ice Cube Pure collection exudes the same spirit of urban chic and modern glamour seen in the preceding Rihanna ♥ Chopard collections, in revolutionised designs of smaller cubes, polished or diamond-set, lined up in tightly packed rows. The minimalist geometry of six facets, 12 ridges and eight peaks are available in models of rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and anklets, all of which are ultimate fashion accessories that can be worn on their own, or stacked up with others in a glorious combination of yellow, white and rose gold.
