High Jewelry 2020: David Morris, Cindy Chao, and Chopard

By whitewall

January 24, 2020

With the 2020 High Jewelry collections debuting in Paris, Whitewall is following along and giving you a look at our favorite new designs, like those by David Morris, and Cindy Chao, and Chopard,.

David Morris marked the start of a new creative direction with its collection “Electric Geometric.” Taking cues from the delicate and organic shapes found in nature, the brand has reimagined them using sharp angles, geometric forms, and a selection of vibrantly colored rare stones like Brazilian Paraíba Tourmaline to create a series of brooches, earrings, necklaces, and cuff bracelets. Standout pieces included the Sunrise bangle in white and rose gold, set with 62.21 carats of white and pink diamonds, the Boreas fan necklace with over 77 carats of yellow and white diamonds, and the striking blue tourmaline Waterfall earring.

While we loved Cindy Chao’s “Black Label Masterpiece” collection, the main event of her High Jewelry presentation was the Aurora Butterfly brooch. Encrusted with gradations of blue sapphires and white diamonds, the glittering paragon boasts 6,023 individual stones, and features 4 pigeon’s blood Burmese rubies and more than 10 carats of triangular rose cut diamonds. Other pieces debuted by Chao included the Emerald Sculptural bangle, the Damask Rose brooch, and the Winter Leaves necklace, which looks as though it’s made of pieces of flora crystalized in ice.

Chopard’s “Exceptional Gemstones” collection focused solely on highlighting an unprecedented selection of precious pieces. Sourcing the gems from locations like Mozambique, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, and Colombia, the collection featured exquisite jewels like a 33-carat yellow diamond, a pear-shaped pigeon’s blood ruby, and a round-cut emerald measuring in at nearly 62 carats. With these jewels, the brand created pieces like a pair of deep green emerald drop earrings, set with two stones each and a cushion cut pink sapphire ring, set between two diamonds and surrounded by glittering diamond band.
