Endless radiance and unique savoir-faire have been at the heart of Piaget’s DNA since the very beginning. The Maison’s ateliers are the place where light is studied, captured, enhanced, and shaped to perfection, injected into creations that lend their unique radiance to anyone who wears them. This vibrant energy glows from the inside out, radiates desirability, charm and pure shining beauty – qualities shared by our bold and joyful Piaget Society.
Today, a set of new creations once again showcases Piaget’s light mastery, both as a jeweller and a watchmaker.
Light is bold, light is festive. It draws attention and awe to its source. This almost alchemic reaction is what gives Piaget’s Sunlight Radiant Infinity capsule and Limelight Gala watch their remarkable power of attraction. Their explosive design reminds the unique energy of the sun, through asymmetric movements that enhance their radiance and uniqueness. At the centre of these earrings, rings, pendant and bracelet, the motive extends its rays to express the solar warmth in a spectacular play of lights.
The asymmetry adds boldness to the creations, extending beauty into the realm of joy and creativity.
In our ateliers, our designers also played with textures, volumes, and forms to render the sun’s unpredictable glow. To achieve this mastery of light that sits at the core of Piaget’s savoir-faire, they use the contrasts of finishes. Polished or decorated, the precious material’s versatility and pure beauty thus shine through, as the unique craftsmanship of the Palace Décor perfectly shows. Each creation is as beautiful as it is unique and require a level of precision and attention usually reserved to High Jewellery creations. Created in 1961 and that has, since then, become a Piaget signature adornment, the emblematic Palace Décor, captures the sun’s vibrancy and eternal energy in jewellery creations that reflect light like no other. The Palace Décor was inspired by the jet set and the glamorous women who loved to dance at the Gstaad Palace hotel, where Piaget’s legendary soirées were held.
With its natural, subtle glow, Palace Décor epitomizes seductive appeal. Its great strength lies in its ability to envelop the skin in alluring elegance. It must be touched to be fully understood: only the experience of wearing it can truly reveal the pleasure it brings. Palace Décor clearly possesses Piaget’s trademark sensuality.
On the Limelight Gala watch, the pure, mother-of-pearl dial with alternating diamonds-set indexes and pink gold Roman numerals radiates a contemporary aura of femininity. 42 brilliant-cut diamonds are set on the rose gold case, using the intricate technique of “serti descendu” that magnifies the brilliance of each stone.
Deeply modern, these creations radiate with the energy of the light, the power of the bolds, and the confidence of the freespirited. The Piaget Society’s unique qualities shine through each of them, like an invitation to experience infinite radiance.
Piaget epitomizes daring creativity – a quality that has continued to permeate through the Maison since its beginnings in 1874. From his first workshop in La Côte-aux-Fées, Georges-Edouard Piaget devoted himself to crafting high-precision movements in a feat that formed the very foundations of our pioneering name. In the late 1950s, Piaget unveiled the ultra-thin movements that would later become the Maison’s trademark and the cornerstone of the Altiplano collection. As a true innovator of the watch and jewellery world, Piaget strongly believed in creativity and artistic values. It is within the walls of our “Ateliers de l’Extraordinaire” where master artisans continue to harness rare skills that have been preserved and perfected from generation to generation, transforming gold, stones and precious gems into dazzling works of art. Through its pursuit of masterful craftsmanship, the Maison has created emblems of daring excellence channelled into its collections including Altiplano, Piaget Polo, Limelight Gala, Possession, Piaget Sunlight, Piaget Rose and Extremely Piaget.
