By 2015, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Palme d’Or, Caroline Scheufele wanted to pay tribute to this jewel plant, symbol of the genius of the cinema. Just like the Palme d’Or from which it is inspired, this Green Carpet collection is fully carried out in the workshops of the Swiss manufacture Fairmined gold, extracted from responsibly. In 2014, I wanted that the Palme d’Or, the most prestigious award in the international film industry, is now completed in Fairmined gold. This year, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Palme d’Or, we’ve combined the emblem, our jeweller know-how and our commitment to a sustainable luxury creating a Green Carpet capsule collection inspired from the Palm” says Caroline Scheufele.

 Composed of a jewellery watch, a ring, earrings and a long pendant, the design of this collection fits to the perfect curve harmony the Palm, and especially its finely ribbed leaflets.
