    The design of the Chopard "Ice Cube" draws its inspiration from the form of frozen cubes, playfully adorning the wrist of its wearer with a square cased wristwatch exquisitely set with baguette-cut white and pink diamonds on the dial, with white diamonds further set on the bezel and sides, further frosted with pavé-set diamonds on the case back. Chopard's "Ice Cube" range of watches and jewelry focuses on sharp, clean lines that reflect light through diamond and precious metal adornments and exudes a festive mood.

    Whilst the diamond-set case, dial and movement of the present magnificent "Ice Cube" example are made and signed by Chopard, the show-stopping, arresting beauty of this unique lady's timepiece lies in its bracelet, dripping with approximately nearly 40 carats of white diamonds and 14 carats of pink diamonds, and made by none other than the legendary House of Moussaieff. The meticulously crafted white and pink gold link bracelet is further punctuated by 11 emerald-cut diamonds set centrally with 54 brilliant-cut pink diamonds on either side. The breathtaking result could only be achieved by the utmost experienced jeweler with an uncompromising eye for matching colors and sizes of precious gemstones. It is also supremely rare to find pink diamonds set on a wristwatch by any manufacturer, especially in such a sizable quantity.

    Moussaieff, considered one of the most discreet and ultra-exclusive high-jewelry houses, dates back to 1850 when the great-grandfather-in-law of the present owner began successfully trading pearls and gemstones throughout the Persian Gulf and India. The 160-year-old family business continues to thrive under the leadership of Alisa Moussaieff (Mrs. Moussaieff), whose impeccable reputation and discerning eye for gemstones garners tremendous admiration and respect from jewelry industry veterans, private collectors, royalty and celebrities throughout the world.
