Chopard’s latest Happy Dreams collection was brought to life on Wednesday 19 April against a backdrop of clouds, sweet treats and white hydrangeas. Held with long-time partner Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the event presented Chopard’s latest take on this modern day classic.

The Swiss watches and jewellery brand is famous for the use of roaming diamonds in its Happy range. The concept was introduced in 1976, when Chopard designer Ronald Kurowski stumbled across a waterfall whilst walking. Inspired by the reflections of the sunbeams bouncing off its water droplets, his idea was to translate this movement into diamonds. Thus the whole ethos of the Happy collection was born – “diamonds are happier when they’re free.”

First presented in a design for a man’s watch, the Happy Diamonds range has been continually reinterpreted through women’s watches and jewels over the last 40 years. The latest Happy Dreams collection looks to the sky and clouds for inspiration, with its jewels designed as a range of interwoven circles of various sizes, each boasting full curves and set with the iconic roaming diamonds.

Guests at last week’s event could try on the new collection whilst indulging in specially crafted cloud-like sweets and listening to a live musical performance by the French band The Gypsy Queens.
