Lanterns are not typically thought of as a major symbol of Valentine’s Day but this year, Chopard has found a connection. The family-owned jeweler and watchmaker has a very special plan for Valentine’s Day in 2013 involving what it calls the Messenger of Love. Well, the idea connects the digital age with the age-old tradition of sending one’s best wishes or messages of love by sending a lantern up into the sky. No surprise that we like this thinking very much!
From now till February 14, 2012, Chopard invites you to send your own virtual love lantern via a new online application. The experience launches you into the (virtual) sky to bear witness to romantic gift ideas from Chopard. In the USA, you can actually purchase these online at the brand’s e-boutique.
