Dame Shirley Performs in Paris for Chopard Diamond Film Premiere

Dame Shirley Bassey wore Chopard’s Garden of Kalahari transformable necklace as she sang “Diamonds are Forever” on 21st January 2017 at Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

Chopard Premiere Paris

Chopard was so enamoured by the discovery of the 342-carat Queen of Kalahari rough diamond they decided to make a 55-minute documentary about it.

The film’s Paris premiere was a star-studded affair followed by a performance of ‘Diamonds are Forever’ by none other than Dame Shirley Bassey.

The Queen of Kalahari gave rise to a set of 23 diamonds – The Garden of Kalahari – five of which weigh over 20 carats.

“I immediately sensed that this was an incredibly rare gem of exceptional beauty and purity”, says Chopard co-president Caroline Scheufele.

“The energy and emotional charge emanating from this gem are truly incomparable.”

  1. Thank you very much. I also found this to be fascinating. What an extraordinary beautiful diamond set. It was very appropriate for DSB to be the first to wear it while singing her signature James Bond theme song. The year seems to be just getting better, and more exciting for her. Thanks again!
