Chopard displayed its ‘Queen of the Kalahari’ jewellery collection in Hong Kong recently. The collection showcases 23 absolutely pure diamonds including 5 weighing over 20 carats, all cut from one single 342-carat diamond.
The Queen of Kalahari, a D-colour rough of flawless clarity grade, was recovered from the Karowe Mine in Botswana.
The centrepiece of the collection is The Garden of Kalahari necklace, which “testifies to the ingenuity and the playful spirit governing Chopard design,” according to the jeweller.
Guests at the event also enjoyed a screening of a film about the story of the 342-carat diamond.
The event was held at Chopard’s IFC boutique.
