A DAY WITH CHOPARD

Pictures by James Vyn

AT THE MANUFACTURE James and I were invited the other day with some other lovely swiss bloggers such as Sara, Soraya, Sandra and Florence to enjoy a whole day full of surprises and discoveries with Chopard whose head quarters are based in Geneva. Our planning, a visit of the Chopard manufactures and a lunch created by the famous chef Michel Roth, who by the way worked previously at the Rytz and possesses two Michelin stars, especially for the brand at his restaurent located at the president Wilson : the Bay View. The only thing I can say is that he got extremely creative with the menu and we are all thrilled to discover his culinary skills. Of course, I was more than excited to discover a little bit more about Chopard, it’s spirit and creations. In fact, I didn’t realise until I saw the manufature all the huge amount of work behind one simple piece of jewerly. All the time, the patience and dedication invested is absolutely incredible. We had the chance to enjoy a little tour with lovely guides who explained us some technical details in order to understand better the whole production process. Chopard have the chance to produce their own gold and it was more than fascinating to actually be able to see all the procedures required to melt it down and finally create a ring, a necklace, earrings or a bracelet. I was really impressed to see all the craftmanship and passion put into every single step of the production.

But I think, what caught my attention the most were the hands of the workers : you can see the scrupulous effort they put into each little piece. It’s quite amazing, not to mention that some very little jewerly pieces can take up to 40 hours to create. Do you guys think you’d have the patience to do something like this? I wonder if I could, I mean it requires such precision, concentration and patience : I am not sure if I could sit for hours and look through a huge amplifying glass. But once you see the result, I think you realise how precious your work is. So I definitely admire all of them who seem to put so much heart in their job, it’s fantastic! All of us also had the chance to discover Chopard’s latest Imperial Collection which is a little bit different in it’s design from what we can usually see, but so incredibly gorgeous and feminin. After the little tour of the head quarters, we all had the chance to sit down and relax around a luxurious lunch at the Bay View restaurant. I am getting hungry again as I am writing these words : the food was incredible. With amazing details that remininded us all the spirit of Chopard. The highlight of the meal? The first dessert which was a white chocolate ”ring” topped by a candy rose petal, the whole lot laying on a strawberry cake pillow. Can you imagine? Thanks again to Chopard for this wonderfull experience and I hope you guys will enjoy this article!

I love that purple ring you are wearing and those pieces are so pretty, I think I could sit and work for ages if there was no pressure to hurry and finish, if there was i would stuff up and ruin my piece :)

It really is amazing when you see all of the work that goes into expensive things. After that it’s so easy to justify buying them because you know of the impeccable craftsmanship! I hope you had a lovely time, I think it’s always great when you’re surrounded by fellow bloggers and delicious food. (It did look yummy).
