CHOPARD ICE CUBE CAPSULE COLLECTION BY MARION COTILLARD
Marion Cotillard came up with the idea of creating a collection that would embody both her style and her personal idea of responsible jewelry.
October 30, 2020
Inspired by the graphic shapes and rock’n’roll spirit of the Chopard Ice Cube collection and by the idea of ethical jewelry, Marion Cotillard designed seven Haute Joaillerie creations in Fairmined-certified ethical gold and diamonds meeting the best international criteria.
Under her impetus, the Chopard Haute Joaillerie atelier thus gave life to a ring and six earrings. As the French actress explained: “Chopard has accompanied me since my debut as an actress and I share Caroline Scheufele’s commitment to ethics, so this new collaboration is a great way to further strengthen the ties between us”.
Marion Cotillard’s design notably reprises the Ice Cube collection’s graphic alignment of small faceted cubes, as well as the easy-going manner in which the jewelry can be worn solo or stacked. Renowned for its geometry, the collection is nevertheless infused with a wave of asymmetry that gives it an even more contemporary look and feel. One side features a series consisting of two connected gold rings to wear on top of the ear; followed by a diamond-set counterpart; and finally, on the lobe, a princess-cut solitaire diamond with a square shape recalling the small faceted cubes of the rings. The other ear features a new combination of three rings connected via the back of the ear, each set with a small diamond, then another, also set with diamond; and finally, on the lobe, a cascade of generous princess-cut diamonds, discreetly set to entirely cover the underlying gold.
Like all Chopard watch and jewelry creations since July 2018, the new models in this Ice Cube Capsule by Marion Cotillard collection are made of ethical gold. The 18-carat yellow gold used for these models, mined in accordance with the best social and environmental guarantees certified by the Fairmined label, has been smelted in Chopard’s workshops.
Marion Cotillard and the Maison Chopard are engaged in a long-term love affair, in which each accompanies the other in achieving key milestones. A regular fixture on red carpets for the promotion of her films, Marion Cotillard never fails to trust the Maison to provide her jewelry choices and willingly accompanies it on the major stages of its Journey to Sustainable Luxury.
