All That Glitters

Classic yet of-the-moment, Chopard’s beautifully crafted L’Heure du Diamant collection sparkles like no other


For Caroline Scheufele, diamonds are in the genes. The daughter of a renowned watch dealer who took over Chopard in the 1960s, she is the Artistic Director and Co-President of the luxury Swiss watch maker, which is still owned by her family to this day. A fervent admirer of diamonds just like her father, Scheufele introduced Chopard’s L’Heure du Diamant collection in 2012, adorning the finest models in her collections with the precious gems. Comprising watches, rings, earrings and pendants, each piece in the line is a stunning display of style and craftsmanship, highlighting the exquisite delicacy of the stones.

“Featuring a white mother-of-pearl dial and midnight-blue soft satin strap, the Oval Horizontal watch is a beautifully crafted blend of luxurious materials”

With dazzling diamond bezels, the L’Heure du Diamant timepieces are the ultimate in refined and feminine watchmaking. What sets the designs apart? Each watch is recognizable by its own unique characteristics. Featuring a white mother-of-pearl dial and midnight-blue soft satin strap, the Oval Horizontal – named accordingly after its distinctive shape – is a beautifully crafted blend of luxurious materials. Alternatively, embrace the decadence of the L’Heure du Diamant Medium Oval and the Medium Round designs, both of which are standouts thanks to their diamond-set guilloche dials.

Exquisite jewelry completes the show-stopping collection. Featuring Chopard’s iconic heart shape – a design emblem that features throughout many of its ranges – the L’Heure du Diamant pendant necklace in 18-carat white gold and diamonds is an ode to romance, style and Chopard craftsmanship. Elsewhere in the collection, the teardrop pendant and earrings are the final word in timeless luxury, their sinuous rounded lines sparkling with diamonds in a luminous display of elegance. With Chopard’s L’Heure du Diamant, diamonds truly are forever.
