Chopard is celebrating 20 years of partnership with Cannes Film Festival as the world’s most glamorous film event also marks its 70th anniversary. The Swiss jeweler created an exceptional Palme d’Or to commemorate this double anniversary.
For the very first time, a cloud of diamonds adorns the precious Fairmined certified ethical gold leaf motif. Using responsibly sourced materials to create this unique gem, Chopard is expressing its deep-felt attachment to the Festival while maintain its commitment to sustainable luxury.
An even more precious trophy
The Palme has been made from ethical gold certified Farmined since 2014. By endowing the famous award with a sense of virtue, Chopard and the Cannes Film Festival has affirmed their determination to work towards a civic-minded form of luxury respectful of people and the environment.
In 2017, the Palme d’Or is taking on unprecedented ethical glow that further enhances its prestige. The legendary film-making distinction will once again be the object of every desire as it shines more brightly than ever and radiates a new aura.
An authentic jewellery creation
Designed in Chopard’s Geneva jewellery ateliers in 1998, every inch of the precious palm is a High Jewellery creation. Made of 118 gram of 18-carat yellow ethical gold certified Fairmined, the Palme rests on a rock crystal cushion shaped like an emerald-cut diamond. Since nature never yields two identical rock crystals, this ultimate detail renders the trophy truly unique.
The journey to sustainable luxury
Chopard has been demonstrating its commitment to corporate responsibility for several years now, placing it at the very core of its value. A programme named The Journey to Sustainable Luxury, which was first launched at the 66th Cannes Festival, takes the form of significant projects aimed at fostering the development of sustainable luxury.
