Christmas is time and again marketed as a sparkling, magical season when everybody’s automatically in high spirits because of the holiday mood, despite us being in Asia, celebrating at 40°C. While some may argue that the celebration has become one of consumerism instead of religion and well wishes, we’re just happy to see the cheerful and beautiful product designs (and a legit reason to eat more) come end of the year.
Piaget’s getting the ball rolling this year with an early release of its Holiday Season 2016 collection that includes timepieces for men and women, high jewellery pieces encompassing rings, bracelets, open bangles, earrings and necklaces. Here’s our five favourite picks from the collection, just in case you’d like to show us some love!
This brilliant spectacle is crafted with 24 marquise-cut diamonds set in a white gold high jewellery mounting in contrast with its minimalistic black dial (G0A41252). Wear it with a black cocktail dress for an overload of elegance, in a good way.
The Extremely Piaget pink gold bracelet (G36LB216) and Extremely Piaget ring (G34L5C52) have shimmering, mesh-like textures on their outer surfaces, with a flourish of brilliant diamonds coyly peeking through the pink gold. The alluring, iridescent affect is created by a gold-smithing technique unique to Piaget, a la Décor Palace.
If slender watches are your preference, take a look at the Altiplano 38mm 900P (G0A41011) which boasts to be one of the world’s thinnest mechanical watches, being both a movement and case at the same time. Having undergone several classes by master watchmakers, it’s fascinating to look at the movement, so simply and proudly displayed.
Remember the Piaget Possession collection that featured Gao Yuanyuan? Very similar to that, this piece has two turning paved bands with diamonds that rotate freely at both ends of the flexible pink gold open bangle (G36PV400). We love the subtle brilliance of the sprinkling of diamonds set along the bracelet — pretty in pink (gold) might just be our holiday style this year.
Have you always been fascinated by the full moon and night sky? Now, you can wear it on your wrist. Piaget’s Limelight Stella watch (G0A40110) is an ode to the seductive power of the moon. This model is made with pink gold with its moon phases hemmed with diamonds to set a twinkle in all eyes that lay on you.
