A Celestial Sparkle
Chopard’s Happy Diamonds Jewellery emerged in the 1980s with the design of a pendent in the shape of a little clown. Its rounded tummy featured the characteristic swirling of diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. Thereafter a whole family of playful, feminine variations grew from the original clown pendant including teddy bears, elephants and ladybirds.
A relative of the Happy Diamonds Jewellery is the Happy Spirit line of jewellery. The mobile diamonds are the essence of this new jewellery. They continue to captivate with unpredictable movements, this time however set in motion in a series of circles that spread out towards infinity.
The new line inspired by Happy Spirit embarks on a journey through the Milky Way. The gold rings surround the central ‘star’ symbolised by a fixed brilliant-cut diamond. Rounder, more luminous and ethereal these creations draw the eye much like the stars in the sky.
The pendants are characterised by concentric, elliptical circles, either all-metal or set with gems, and imbedded one within another. The rings and earrings possess the same motif. The circle as the symbol of infinity, unites the collection of Happy Spirit Jewellery.
The successive ellipses surrounding the diamonds are smooth, gem-set on the middle ring, or entirely set with diamonds. The Happy Spirit collection conveys a very contemporary style while highlighting a purity of form. These high-jewellery collections can be ordered through Chatham Luxury Watches in Sri Lanka.
