In honor of its 150th anniversary, the famed Swiss fine-jewelry and watch maker Chopard introduced a glittering animal inspired collection in high end jewels. Chopard is well-known for its watches that contain the sprinkling of floating diamonds underneath the watch´s crystal.

This artistry has long been a part of the family owned business of the Scheufele family since 1860. The showplace of jewels has been embellishing the great actresses of the silver screen for exclusive Red Carpet events such as the Academy Awards, Cannes Film Festival and Screen Actors Guild.

The artistic director and co-president, Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele, worked on the animal theme stemming from her childhood passion and fascination of nature. Some of these alluring pieces include a turtle ring in rose gold with a huge pear-shaped yellow diamond centered in it shell and surrounded by yellow and clear smaller diamonds. The stunning salamander brooch is set in diamonds, garnets and tourmalines. There is such a vast selection, including seahorses, parrots and frogs, all adorned in precious jewels.

The Chopard brand is every bit of sparkle and these animal gems have quickly been seen on the likes of Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron and Kate Winslet. These are truly knockout pieces that easily placed the Chopard name back on the fine-jewelry must-haves.

Wearing a Chopard stunner, such as a brooch or bracelet, demands that a woman keep the balance of her wardrobe simple and elegant. One of the forerunners that will also compliment a razzle dazzle piece of jewelry is an authentic Chanel bag.

The pre-owned Chanel Patent purse is a stunning everyday bag that is roomy and chic at the same time. It features black patent leather, detailing of the rings, zippers and the infamous CC logo twist lock in silver.

Against the front exterior on this pre-owned shiny stunner lies an over-sized pocket. The double straps are done up by a link chain intertwined with black patent leather.

The zip top closure contains a leather dog-tag pull enriched by the "Chanel" name in silver tone hardware. Once opened by the top zip, the interior is completed by grained black leather.  Containing an abundance of space for all essentials, a zippered interior pocket is an additional perk for any handbag devotee.

Chopard´s philosophy of their business success has always been attributed to their motto "that as long as there are women, there will be diamonds."

Furthermore, what should be added to that adage is all women should be the owners of an authentic Chanel handbag.
