  Chopard, Harrods and Disney collaboration results in spectacular gem-set jewelery collection

January 12, 2013

A collaboration involving jewelry manufacturer Chopard, the legendary London department store Harrods and Disney company has resulted in a collection of colored gem-set jewelry based on Disney princess characters.

The 10-piece collection features a host of famous Disney movie characters, all of whom inspired selections of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and hairpieces.

"The world of Walt Disney has often been an inspiration for a variety of Chopard pieces," said Caroline Scheufele, co-president and artistic director of the Swiss jewelry manufacturer, who added "Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel....and all other ones have been a great source of inspiration for me, giving birth to this new elegant yet playful collection of Haute Joaillerie - a perfect expression of the Chopard aesthetic." The company had worked with Disney before, presenting last year its Happy Mickey collection.

The Disney Princess collection was unveiled in time to feature in Harrods' Christmas 2012 window displays, and appeared this year alongside dresses by Oscar de la Renta, Versace and Elie Saab.

Among the pieces in the collection is the Mulan brooch, named after the lead character in the 1998 animated feature film which is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan. The brooch takes the form of a flower, meant to incorporate the fighting spirit of Mulan, and features a rubellite cabochon at its center, offset by rubies cut in ovals and squares, as well as violet and pink spinels, pink oval tourmalines, pink pear-shaped and round sapphires and round rubellites.

The Belle necklace, which is named for the female lead character Belle in the 1991 animated feature film Beauty and the Beast, was said to exude the personality of Belle and created in consideration to the yellow gown Belle wears. The necklace was crafted from white gold set with gemstones in a gradient arrangement. The highlight is an electric blue 69-carat pear-shaped tanzanite, set with blue sapphires, marquise and oval amethysts, round white and pink diamonds, heart-shaped pink sapphires; as well as square, pear- and round-shaped rubellites, spinels, kunzites and morganites.

The Snow White Ring, named after Disney's most famous princess, from the animated feature film first released in 1937, is, as one would expect, an apple-shaped ring, and is made of white and rose gold. Its stem is encrusted with round brown diamonds and its leaf is set with tsavorites. The apple itself is set with round-cut rubies.
