Haute couture is one-of-a-kind creations crafted from the finest materials by skilled artisans using century-old techniques. Haute couture had humble beginnings. In 1858, an English couturier, Charles Frederick Worth, established the first haute couture house in Paris championing exclusive luxury fashion for the upper-class woman and coining the term “fashion designer” in lieu of the basic dressmaker. Today, haute couture is still synonymous with high-quality materials and workmanship. And when haute couture meets haute joaillerie (high jewelry), the result is transformative! The jewelry becomes an extension of the designer’s vision for his or her collection creating a complete story – one that is truly a work of art!

Giambattista Valli accessorized his haute couture collection, comprising of ethereal tulle gowns, draped silk chiffon dresses and embellished minis with exquisite vintage jewels from Eleuteri. The jewels focused mainly on bracelets featuring a glorious 1950s French amethyst and turquoise piece as well as a intricate jade and gold design from David Webb and several Tubogas wristwatches from Bulgari.

The Chinese designer made a name for herself when she dressed singer Rihanna in yellow couture for the MET’s “China through the Looking Glass” gala and red carpet. For her haute couture collection, she collaborated with Chopard paying homage to the golden era of haute couture and Hollywood icons of the 50s. The results were a perfect fusion of Chinese and Western cultures, high fashion and exquisite jewels.

The deep jewel toned hues of Pei’s dresses paired effortlessly with Chopard’s the Silk Road collection, which featured an emerald bib necklace, diamond and pearl drop earrings and an amethyst pendant necklace. The Chopard jewels complemented the opulence and extravagance of Pei’s couture collection perfectly.

Not to mention they have a remarkable way of framing the face and are extremely adaptable in size to fit anyone’s face shape. They’re quintessential and dependable. Hoop shaped earrings have been a powerful symbol in numerous cultures throughout history. The oldest earrings archaeologists have discovered belong to Sumerian women who lived in 2500 BC, and favoured the classic gold hoop style.

Swimming in Diamonds with Chopard: The Release of the New Happy Fish Watch

For years haute horologists have pioneered technologically advanced timepieces that can traverse the deepest depths of the ocean while remaining water resistant and technically sound; but who ever said luxury fashion and the sea cannot pair together as well? The two are seen paired together throughout Chopard’s Happy Fish collection, which was first released in 2002. At Baselworld 2015, a new Happy Fish timepiece was unveiled to showcase the beauty of true companionship between fish and diamonds. The design is truly magnificent, with several floating diamonds that dance around a tropical glow-in-the-dark fish, encompassed in an 18K rose gold case. As a luxury online retailer, we couldn’t help but admire the new Chopard Happy Fish watch in all its glory of excellent watchmaking.

Those who adore the beauty of marine life will be astounded by the latest novelty of the Chopard Happy Fish Collection. Two sapphire crystals close in seven floating diamonds that seem to mimic bubbles under the ocean when they are at a standstill. The tropical fish is delicately engraved on a glimmering mother of pearl dial surrounded by a diamond-clad bezel. The timepiece demonstrates the clash of diamonds and gemstones with stainless steel as it is powered by a mechanical self-winding movement. Constructed with the toughness of a sports watch, the new Happy Fish timepiece is water resistant to 30 meters. Grouped blue sapphires on the dial set the background for the tropical fish, with gold colored hour, minute and seconds hands.

Chopard Happy Fish

In regards to the Happy Fish “MÉTIERS D’ARTS” 36 MM Automatic Watch by Chopard, we at Luxury Bazaar sell a variety of Chopard jewelry, accessories and watches that play on the floating diamonds theme, as well as complement the new timepiece in style. We offer Chopard items from nearly every collection of the label, such as Happy Sport, Happy Spirit, Happy Diamonds and more.

The Happy Sport Watch by Chopard for $6,230 presents a sea-green leather strap that resembles the shade of an aquatic plant. The diamond square bezel outlines several free-set diamonds that roam upon a white dial with bold roman numerals. This watch showcases a trending summer color that can accessorize a shore themed outfit.

Chopard Happy Fish5

Another accessory of the Happy Fish collection is the Happy Fish Blue and White Leather Bag by Chopard for $565. This calfskin leather handbag makes a great accompaniment to the new Happy Fish watch and can hold all of your daily essentials. A fish motif is displayed on the clasp and two fish cut-outs on the sides make the bag especially unique.

Chopard Happy Fish4

For a Titanic-like feel, the luxurious diamonds of the Happy Diamonds 18K Yellow Gold Sapphire Drop Earrings by Chopard for $12,300 exhibit a classy appearance. Two sapphire hearts are set on diamond teardrop designs that hold three floating diamonds each. A teardrop shaped sapphire sits at the top of the loop to connect to a golden scroll of diamonds.

Chopard Happy Fish3

A little love goes a long way, especially when it comes to the heart of the sea. Mix and match the floating diamond signature of Chopard with hearts and fish by donning the Happy Diamonds 18K White Gold Heart Ring by Chopard for $3,530 around your finger. The simple design features a white gold setting traced with sparkling diamonds. A heart is the main attraction, holding a single floating diamond that dances with every gesture.

A Birthday of Diamonds

Aside from having a reputation for being the time of year when the Earth becomes nourished from long periods of rain, April is the month that is marked as the diamond birthstone. We at Luxury Bazaar would like to wish all those who entered the world in April a huge Happy Birthday! We’d like to celebrate with you by sharing some of our favorite diamond pieces, which make the perfect birthday gift for any loved one. After all, it is said that giving an individual a piece of jewelry containing their birthstone provides them with protection and good luck.

A Diamond’s Characteristics

Compared to all of the other gemstones, the diamond is the hardest natural substance on the planet. It is also the most translucent, a feature that comes from a long series of wavelengths, that range from far infrared to ultraviolet. The diamond is found in various countries around the world, such as Australia, Russia, Brazil and the United States. The gem gets its name from the Greek word “adamas,” which means “hardest metal.”

Where Do Diamonds Come From?

Long ago, the ancient Hindu culture believed that when lightning bolts hit the ground, diamonds were created. The Greeks thought that diamonds were the tears of their Gods. In reality, diamonds are formed deep underground, inside the Earth’s mantle and then brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions.

Volcanoes are comprised of a type of rock called “Kimberlite,” which contains diamonds within it. The stone is mined and crushed by giant steel rollers that reveal the diamonds within the stone, because they cannot be destroyed by the machine due to their hardness. While the kimberlite is smashed into a fine gravel, the diamonds remain unharmed. Water is applied into the mix so that a greased roller can pick them up like a sticky lint roller. About a ton of rich ore contains only a single karat of diamond.

What Does the Diamond Mean?

As the main gem found in engagement rings and wedding bands, diamonds are the symbol of love and eternity. The stone represents everlasting affection and strength within a relationship. One interesting fact about the diamond was that it first became the gift of marriage by Archduke Maximilian of Austria, who presented a beautiful diamond ring to his love, Mary of Burgundy when he asked for her hand in marriage.

Here are some of our favorite diamond jewelry pieces that seem to sparkle endlessly with beauty.

What better way to express love and the celebration of life than with diamonds in the form of a heart? This 18K White Gold Diamond Pave Heart Pendant Necklace by Chopard for $14,019 is an openwork design that gives off a flirty, stylish appearance. The diamonds gather in the form of a horseshoe as a shiny gold ribbon grasps both sides to complete its eternal silhouette.


Partner up with the diamonds of April to bring May flowers with the 18K White Gold Multi-Diamond Pave Cocktail Ring by Maggioro, for $14,200. This piece replicates the happenings of spring with a diamond flower that seems to be sprouting in a meadow blend of black diamonds.


These 18K Multi-Gold Diamond Drop Earrings for $6,020 mimic the essence of rain drops as they fall from the sky to nourish the Earth. Present these lovely earrings to the lady born in April to accent a stunning look.

Chopard creates each jewelry variation to have its own story – which is what makes the line so artistically personable.

Women can add to their style story by shopping the Chopard brand available at Luxury Bazaar, which features some of the items at 50% off of retail.

Ethically Sourced Diamonds

Chopard opts to obtain their diamonds from suppliers that are certified members of the Responsible Jewelry Council because the union supports two organizations that work to eliminate the trade of conflict diamonds – the Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council. The brand uses a self-regulated system for their suppliers that requests that they not buy or sell conflict diamonds. The suppliers are also asked not to buy stones from unknown sources. This sourcing method allows the label to provide a guarantee of origin certificate for each jewelry design that is created.


Show your support, as well as your individuality, with a piece from our Chopard Jewelry Specials at Luxury Bazaar.
