While the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival hosts some of the most beautiful gowns and jewels in the world, no jewelry brand is as prominent as Chopard. In fact, this year marks the 20th anniversary of Chopard as an official partner of the chic French film festival. Chopard redesigned the Palme d’Or — the highest prize awarded at Cannes — two decades ago. And this year, when director Ruben Ostlund won for The Square, he picked up a special edition of the Palme d’Or adorned, for the first time, with diamonds. Thanks to their exquisite designs and impeccable gems, Chopard jewelry is some of our favorite kind of jewelry. So, awards aside, let’s take a look at the Chopard jewelry at the Cannes Film Festival.

Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, Chopard created 70 high-jewelry pieces as part of their Red Carpet collection. From the necklaces to the bracelets to the rings to the rings, each of these breathtaking Chopard jewels is actually a one-of-a-kind piece. But that’s no surprise, given the work that went into each of the Red Carpet collection masterpieces.

The Chopard Red Carpet collection features black opals, pink kunzite, rich green emeralds, deep blue sapphires, and of course, hundreds and hundreds of diamonds. These were incredibly stunning Chopard jewelry at the Cannes Film Festival indeed.

Rihanna and Chopard Jewelry at the Cannes Film Festival

There were dozens of beautiful celebrities wearing Chopard at the glamorous film event including Julianne Moore, Charlize Theron, Susan Sarandon, Kendall Jenner, and many other A-listers. Yet, at the center of the Chopard universe was none other than megastar entertainer, Rihanna. In addition to chart-topping albums and sell-out concerts, the super talented Rihanna now has her own jewelry line with Chopard. Making its official debut at this year’s Cannes festival, the collaboration is a delightful surprise!

The Rihanna Loves Chopard jewelry collection is divided into two segments: Joaillerie and Haute-Joaillerie. The Rihanna Joaillerie line includes ultra-modern pieces suitable for everyday wear. The jewelry pieces flaunt minimalist geometric shapes and sharp, clean lines. The necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings bring together pink gold and “Jungle Green” ceramic.

 

On the other hand, the Rihanna Haute Joaillerie collection boasts extravagant high-jewelry pieces for special occasions. One high-jewelry piece that caught our eye is the pair of colorful earrings with an abundance of gemstones cascading dramatically.

Rihanna has been wearing Chopard jewelry on red carpets for years, so the progression to an eponymous line within the Swiss jeweler’s catalog makes perfect sense. Since the Rihanna Loves Chopard jewels will all be limited edition pieces, we wouldn’t be surprised if they sell out in a heartbeat.
