Academy Award Winners Cate Blanchett & Matthew McConaughey among Stars Wearing Chopard Timepieces at this Year’s Oscars

Mar 05, 2014

The Swiss based jeweller-watchmaker brought luck to Cate Blanchett, winner of the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Chopard also brought luck to Matthew McConaughey, winner of the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

Cate Blanchett looked stunning wearing a pair of opal drop earrings, featuring 62 white opals (33 carats) set in white diamond pave and 18-karat white gold – a first preview of Chopard’s 2014 Red Carpet Collection. She also selected a brown diamond bracelet (49 carats) set in 18-karat white gold, and a toi y moi pear-shape diamond ring (4 carats) set in 18-karat white gold.

Matthew McConaughey selected Chopard’s L.U.C. XP Tonneau timepiece crafted in 18-karat white gold, featuring a white dial and black leather strap. He also wore a pair of onyx cufflinks, set in 18-karat white gold featuring white diamond pave.

For the eleventh consecutive year, the top winners presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences were adorned in jewelry created by the prestigious Geneva-based House. Winner of the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Cate Blanchett, and winner of the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Matthew McConaughey, followed in the glamorous footsteps of such luminaries as Jennifer Lawrence, Colin Firth, Charlize Theron, Hilary Swank, Rachel Weisz, Helen Mirren, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, Penélope Cruz, Mo’Nique and Michel Hazanavicius. Chopard, the jeweler-watchmaker of the cinema world, has a decidedly golden touch.
