For the second time the House of Chopard is the proud “presenting partner” of the AIDS Solidarity Gala 2014 in the Viennese Hofburg Palace, hosted by UNAIDS and AIDS LIFE.
A very unique diamond jewel has been created for the live auction during the AIDS Solidarity Gala.
The company has been involved for many years now in fighting against HIV / AIDS. As part of its support for this cause, Chopard sponsors Sir Elton John’s Oscar Viewing Party held every year and is also partner of Sir Elton John´s annual White Tie & Tiara Ball. Chopard devotes its talent and reputation to the most vulnerable members of society. The Scheufele family regards serving just and noble causes as a natural duty.
For the live auction at the 2014 AIDS Solidarity Gala Chopard has been creating a wonderful collier of 18 kt white gold and diamonds in various shapes. “A 4 ct heart shaped diamond represents the heart of this jewel” explains Caroline Scheufele, co-president and creative director of Chopard. Our commitment to the AIDS Solidarity Gala comes from the bottom of our heart, therefore we have chosen a beautiful heart shaped diamond as the “heart” of this unique collier. The heart is surrounded by 16 diamonds in marquise shape (4,03 ct) and 12 pearshaped diamonds (2,30 ct). As a homage to the “Red Ribbon” the link between the chain and the pendant has been designed as a ribbon and set with 105 red rubies. The white gold chain of the collier hosts diamonds and rubies in brilliant shape. In total the collier has 14,85 ct of diamonds and rubies.
This jewel is a very unique piece, designed and created especially for this AIDS Solidarity Gala
