Chopard and Gemfields strengthen partnership with the launch of new Green Carpet creations of High Jewellery at the Venice Film Festival 2016.
Today Chopard unveiled two stunning new pieces in its Green Carpet Collection of High Jewellery at the Venice Film Festival 2016. Debuted at the opening ceremony of the Mostra by Gemma Arterton and Bianca Balti, the incredible statement earrings, along with an exquisite necklace, intricately laced with diamonds and a spectacular emerald pear-shaped pendant of 22cts, are crafted in Fair mined certified gold and feature the responsibly sourced emeralds from Gemfields and diamonds sourced from a diamond supplier certified to the RJC Code of Practices.
All Chopard’s pieces of High Jewellery are lovingly crafted by artisans in its workshops in Geneva. Gemfield’s Kagem mine in Zambia is the first to be assessed against Eco-Age’s Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) Principles of Sustainable Excellence. Eco-Age – experts in sustainability for global brands as well as sustainable mining practices and Chopard’s partner in developing the Journey to Sustainable Luxury – used its GCC Principles of Sustainable Excellence to assess the mining site, covering social welfare, environmental protection, training provision and security for workers.
