Cannes - Jewellery worth more than one million dollars made by Swiss luxury watchmaker and jeweller Chopard and due to be loaned to stars walking the red carpet at the Cannes film festival were stolen from a hotel, police said on Friday.

Thieves broke into the room of a Chopard employee, opened a safe and made off with the jewels, they said. The robbery took place at the Novotel hotel in the centre of Cannes.

Chopard is one of the official sponsors of the festival. The jeweller redesigned the festival's Palme d'Or award and each year creates jewellery sets for the "mounting the steps" ritual.
