Exuding the lightness of time and punctuated by the timeless beauty of the circle and dancing diamonds, the Chopard Happy Spirit collection exudes the joyful radiance of endless celebration.
Chopard’s iconic dancing diamonds gave birth to Happy Spirit, a collection of jewelry endowed with mesmerizing charm, talismans for the woman who wears them and a living tableau for those who observe them in action. Happy Spirit jewelry is now reinvented through a new design that is sleeker, lighter and more luminous than ever.
Through a wonderful game of chance and kinetic energy, dancing diamonds perform a mesmerizing choreography staging multiplied circles, the perennial and multicultural symbol of femininity, fertility and perpetual rebirth. Their incessant movement tells the story of a whirl of a joyful life in motion.
Happy Spirit comes as a collection of necklaces and pendants of different sizes, equally capable of enhancing a cashmere sweater or a full-length evening gown. Depending on their size, one to three dancing diamonds rotate, protected by several nested circles. The collection also features ear studs and a pair of sleeper earrings as well as rings and bangles. Each model is made of 18-carat ethical gold available in two versions: diamond-set white gold or two-tone polished rose and white gold.
The eminently feminine roundness of the circle naturally conjures up a range of artistic connotations. It naturally brings to mind Calder’s amazing mobiles, which perform an enchanting ballet at the slightest breath of wind. The figure of the circle and its interlocking elements also evoke sculptural references dear to the Russian avant-garde, as well as to the surrealist movement which, through the work of André Breton, celebrated the concept of objective chance. The free and apparently random variations of the circles gracing Happy Spirit jewelry stage a perpetually renewed show that vividly illustrates this formal interpretation: a single movement or impulse enables them to redraw the map of possibilities and reshuffle the cards of desire.
