Chopard held a private screening of its 50-minute documentary The Queen of Kalahari, which tells of the discovery of the eponymous 342-carat rough diamond at Botswana’s Karowe mine and the painstaking, year-long design process that saw the stone cut into magnificent jewels and brought to life in a dazzling Chopard collection called Garden of Kalahari. The collection comprises a necklace, a cuff bracelet, two cocktail rings, a pair of earrings and a secret watch. The necklace features the three largest stones—a 50-carat brilliant-cut, a 25-carat pear-shaped and a 26-carat heart-shaped gem. After the screening, guests made their way to Chopard’s boutique in IFC Mall where they could view the collection prominently displayed alongside other high jewellery created by the maison.
