Chopard happy diiamionds watch square - luxury lifestyle magazine - eat love savorSince 1976, Happy Diamonds have been joyfully lighting up the eponymous creations from Chopard.

Over the years, the famous moving diamonds have been staged through a myriad precious and joyful watch and jewellery creation. To mark their 40th birthday, they revisited the iconic model in which they were first introduced.

Inspired by a Waterfall in the Black Forest

While out on a walk in the Black Forest during the 1970s, Chopard designer Ronald Kurowski was entranced by the sight of a waterfall and the thousands of tiny water droplets bursting out from it, reflecting the daylight and sparkling with all the colours of the rainbow.

Diamonds Freed to Sparkle in Full Dazzling Radiance

This vision sparked a brilliant idea: to enable diamonds to sparkle in full dazzling radiance, they should be freed from their settings and allowed to circulate freely. This was born the Happy Diamonds concept destined for a truly brilliant future. “Diamonds are happier when they’re free”: it was in these terms that Karin Scheufele hailed the first creation featuring moving diamonds, a Happy Diamonds watch.

Moving diamonds provide scope for all manner of bold designs and have since been interpreted through a broad range of watches, necklaces, pendants, rings and earrings. Over the years, our Co-President and Artistic Director, Caroline Scheufele, has repeatedly surprised observers by achieving the feat of perpetually reinventing this theme.

The first Happy Diamonds model was a men’s watch, a large cushion-shaped timepiece with an 18-carat white gold case and bracelet framing a black dial magnificently highlighting the first moving diamonds. This iconic creation, which won the prestigious Golden Rose of Baden-Baden in 1976, inspired a model celebrating the 40th anniversary of the invention of moving diamonds.

Picking up the initial cushion shape, but this time designed for women, today’s Happy Diamonds watch is a precious jewellery model exuding a charm that is both vintage and contemporary. The prong-set diamonds encircling the dial emphasise its gentle curves, while new mobile diamonds whirl freely across a textured white mother-of-pearl background. There are more of them than ever and they are also larger as well as in different sizes, thereby accentuating their whirling dance and the sense of diamond-studded profusion. Inside this playground, a mini subdial, also ringed with diamonds, bears the watch hands. Inspired by clouds and borne upon the gentle wings of fanciful reveries, our new jewellery collection, Happy Dreams treats the world’s most joyful diamonds to an ethereal fantasy journey.
