Chopard Happy Hearts bangle bracelets

It’s that time of year again when our thoughts turn to the Naughty or Nice List for Santa Claus. Although you probably already started this after reading about the first Christmas Shop that opened in August this year!

In the first of a two-part series, we check out Chopard goodies for both naughty and nice ladies…..

Happy Snowflakes

Happy Snowflakes Watch ref.274891-1014

Aptly for the season, the Happy Snowflakes collection starts with a limited edition wristwatch for 50 lucky ladies worldwide. Only available from Chopard own boutiques and Chopard Corners within select retail partners, the wintry timepiece and bracelet set is an anthem to winter, with swirling white diamonds and mother-of-pearl.

Happy Snowflakes Watch

The exquisite 36mm diameter watch has mother-of-pearl marquetry and snow-set diamonds reproduce snowflakes on the dial of a snowflake engraved white gold case enrobing a Chopard mechanical movement. Ref. 274891-1014

Happy Snowflakes set

The accompanying 18-carat white gold bracelet is set with a mobile diamond and a mobile snowflake. Ref. 85A482-1001

 

Imperiale Moonphase

Imperiale Moonphase Watch ref.384246-1001

Next up is a lunatic, poetic complication for the moon phase has a place of its own in women’s hearts. The Imperiale Moonphase watch depicts the cycle of the night wanderer and the depiction of constellations transport you on a poetic journey with white and blue mother-of-pearl and the fire of diamonds. At the heart of the timepiece is a self-winding Chopard 96.25-C movement.

Precious Chopard Earrings

The Precious Chopard collection is another level up with Chopard High Jewellery spirit.

To celebrate Christmas, the collection welcomes a pair of earrings with a secret duality. Their shape allows them to be worn in both directions. Pointing upwards or downwards changes their mood like that of the girl wearing them (naughty or nice!)

AlphaLuxe Comment

If I had ladies’ stockings, I too would be eager to lay them out for Santa, baby!

The Christmas gifts from Chopard are way too enticing and I wouldn’t know whether to be good or “real bad”…..
