The story starts at Christmas in 2020, as Ms. Carey was set to celebrate the diamond disc of her holiday anthem “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and received the book presenting Chopard’s famed Red Carpet Collection. The coincidence and inspiration were too strong for her to resist a conversation with her longtime friend, Chopard Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele who turned the Fantasy into a diamond reality.
The butterfly is a symbol shared by both the icon and the iconic brand. The collection features a monumental butterfly-shaped diamond collar and asymmetrical earrings, each ear taking a wing in fair-mined gold and natural diamonds. The larger earring features a cascade of round and heart-shaped diamonds hearkening back to the rainbow emblazoned on another hit album by Ms. Carey.
“It’s finally here! Mariah Carey x Chopard! Working with Caroline Scheufele and Chopard on the Happy Butterfly collection has been an incredible journey! I’m so grateful for their boundless creativity, unparalleled craftsmanship, and commitment to producing fine jewelry with ethical integrity.”
The collection launched September 16th with a cocktail party in downtown Manhattan on the 25th anniversary of the album, Butterfly. What more to say. Just heavenly.
