Actress wearing luxury diamond jewellery during the Cannes Film Festival

Official Partner to the Cannes Film Festival

Since 1998, Chopard has formed a glittering duo with the Cannes International Film Festival to which it serves as official partner. In addition to crafting the legendary Palme d’Or in its workshops along with all the trophies to be distributed at the closing prize-giving ceremony, and adorning the stars for the traditional “Montée des Marches” red-carpeted staircase ritual thanks to the magnificent High Jewellery Red Carpet Collection, the Maison also awards rising talents with the Trophée Chopard as well as hosting unforgettable annual parties. This year, Chopard is once again set to dazzle while bringing its own inimitable sparkle to the legendary Croisette.
The Quintessence of Glamour

Chopard loves cinema

Over the past few decades, Chopard has expressed the quintessence of glamour through the creation of unique High Jewellery creations adorning the greatest film stars. Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Sharon Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux, Penélope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Freida Pinto, Fan Bing Bing, Zhang Ziyi, Isabelle Huppert, Catherine Deneuve and Jane Fonda, to mention but a few, have all dazzled on the red carpet wearing High Jewellery treasures crafted by Chopard.

Certain images remain etched in collective memory. Many will notably recall Angelina Jolie in 2007, resplendent on the red carpet in a yellow gown enhanced with daffodil diamonds. And how could one forget the natural and disarming beauty of Julia Roberts, on her first appearance at the 2016 Cannes Festival, strolling around barefoot with her decolletage illuminated by a luxury necklace set with magnificent emeralds?

The Cannes Film Festival Official Palme d'Or
The award

Palme d'Or

Coveted by every film director on the planet, the Palme d’Or each year honours the best film screened at the Cannes Film Festival. Redesigned in 1998 by Caroline Scheufele, it has since become a radiant symbol of the love story uniting Chopard with the most glamorous film festival in the world. In addition to the Palme d'Or for the best feature film and the mini Palme for the best short film – both made in ethical ‘Fairmined’ certified gold – the Maison’s workshops also produce rock crystals engraved with a palm branch for all the other awards, making Chopard the artisan of all these prestigious official prizes catalysing a wealth of emotions.
Tomorrow's talent

Trophee Chopard

Created in 2001, each year the Trophée Chopard highlights the international film industry's up-and-coming generation and shrewdly wagers on the talents of tomorrow by rewarding both a young actress and a young actor poised for a successful career on the silver screen. From Audrey Tautou to Marion Cotillard, from Léa Seydoux to Adèle Exarchopoulos, along with Shailene Woodley, Ezra Miller and John Boyega, actors and actresses who have triumphed both in indie movies and blockbuster productions: all these laureates have confirmed their promise by embarking on brilliant life-changing careers.
‘Chopard Loves Cinema’

Red Carpet Collection

A long-standing lover of the seventh art, our artistic director Caroline Scheufele has chosen cinema as the main source of inspiration for our new Red Carpet Collection: a complete set of 75 Haute Joaillerie creations presented on the occasion of the 75th Cannes Festival. Like a film director, she has designed luxury jewellery freely inspired by the legendary worlds and scenes of the film masterpieces that have made an impression on her life.
