A light butterfly carrying the creative force of an authentic queen of music into the air. To bring an enchanting Haute Joaillerie collection to life, Mariah Carey turned to Chopard and its Co-President and Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele.
The jewellery is a natural extension of the creative universe of this singer who, over the decades, has become one of the world’s most famous voices.
The butterfly, a symbol of metamorphosis, is the sparkling emblem of the energy that has led Mariah Carey to an extraordinarily enduring success, as well as being a style icon of the Maison Chopard, the bearer of ever-renewed aspirations and a wind of freedom. Mariah Carey interprets it in the form of sublime jewellery: a diamond-paved parure comprising a necklace, a pair of earrings and a Fairmined-certified ethical gold ring. A butterfly with majestic proportions, sensual curves and a spokesperson for an ethical message.
The Happy Butterfly X Mariah Carey Collection retains the legendary codes of the Happy Diamonds turned butterfly: a pierced heart inside which, in transparency, one can admire a mobile diamond between two sapphire crystals. Four majestic wings unfold in an entirely new way, masterfully reinventing the codes of symmetry to which butterfly-inspired jewellery usually bends.
The wings of the Happy Butterfly X Mariah Carey Collection, paved with diamonds or carnelian, give these talismanic jewels greater breadth and movement with their asymmetry. The butterfly in ethical rose or white gold embellishes a pendant, a bracelet, a reed bracelet, a ring and a pair of earrings. An irresistible collection full of emotion to which the diamonds, sourced from suppliers certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council, lend an incomparable magic.
Butterfly, the name of the album released in 1997 that marked a turning point in Mariah Carey’s career and life, is full of new musical inspirations that enshrine the singer’s affiliation with the universe of R&B and hip-hop. It is also the album that symbolises her new-found freedom: after the chrysalis, rebirth.
The butterfly, emblem of lightness and future par excellence, has become the symbol of Mariah Carey, of which the singer is proud: the beginning of a life reinvented in a nomadic, graceful and delicate spirit. And the Haute Joaillerie creations celebrate its elegance, delicacy and symbolic strength.
