From the seminal Happy Sport line comes Happy Snowflakes, a capsule collection that marries steel and diamonds in perfect symmetry. Available with a polished or diamond-set bezel, this 30mm stainless steel timepiece evokes a whimsical winter wonderland with the brand’s iconic dancing diamonds, dainty gold snowflake whirling on its finely hammered silver-toned dial, plus white leather strap. Complete the look with a matching pendant made of 18-carat white ethical gold and diamonds.

03| Happy Sport

Lift bae from pandemic-era ennui with two new Happy Sport models that channel warmth, vivacity and joie de vivre. The 36 mm-diameter watch comes in two light-hearted iterations – an all-steel version with seven dancing diamonds shimmying across a shimmering pink dial and graced with a finely guilloché centre; and a bi-material model crafted in steel with 18-carat ethical rose gold highlights on the bezel, facetted crown, lug screws as well as part of the central links.

Reopened borders signal the implicit need to talk shop in person. Whisk your enterprising loved one back into the cadence of cross-continental travel with this sleek monochromatic dual-time travel watch. The limited-edition timepiece is designed for ease of use, with two time zones adjusted with separate crowns. Along with the new L.U.C Time Traveler One Black worldtimer, it is the world’s first travel watch to use the lightweight and ultra-durable ceramised grade 5 titanium case.

05| L’Heure du Diamant

Chopard once again demonstrates its prowess as a master artisan wielding keen aesthetic sensibilities with this bejewelled beauty. The L’Heure du Diamant collection puts a fresh spin on tradition with its series of cushion-shaped watches that feature the biophilic tree bark-textured gold bracelet. This is sculpted using a technique unique to the Scheufele family involving handcrafting goldwork. They are fashioned from ethical 18-carat white or rose gold, graced with a precious rose gold, lapis lazuli or malachite dial and rimmed with diamonds. The delicate tickers beat to the rhythm of the Chopard 09.01-C automatic movement.

06| Precious Lace Collection

Treat your queen like blue-blooded royalty by gifting her with a creation from this high jewellery collection inspired by intricately filigreed Venetian lace favoured by Renaissance rulers – including Elizabeth I. A mainstay in haute couture and by extension, haute joaillerie, the scrolls, floral patterns and swirls of fine antique lace feature heavily in this collection, which weaves diamonds and ethical gold together in fluid, intricate openwork.

It’s defined by two motifs – Vague, whose wave-like design adorns a pair of earrings, pendant and a ring; and Mini-Froufrou, a stylised flower pattern that brings feminine charm to a ring, earrings, pendant and bangle.
