Chopard introduces a new responsibly sourced Paraiba tourmaline

15 May, 2018

Academy Award winning actress Julianne Moore joined Caroline Scheufele in designing the first creation of this capsule collection which was unveiled during the Cannes Film Festival 2018.

Chopard announced the next milestone in its Journey to Sustainable Luxury, as it unveiled a beautiful new addition to its Green Carpet Collection - an exquisite necklace, showcasing a beautiful and rare neon blue-green Paraiba tourmaline. This more than 34-carat gemstone was responsibly sourced from a mine in the Mavuco-Chalaua region of Mozambique, which was assessed against Eco-Age’s Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) Principles of Sustainable Excellence and the Chopard Supplier Code of Conduct covering governance, social welfare and environmental protection. This new announcement is the latest in Chopard’s raw materials programme which has seen the Maison constantly work to introduce responsible materials to its collections. To date Chopard has worked with Aurora Opals, Gemfields Emeralds and diamonds from RJC certified suppliers.
