The Piaget Rose Collection – sophisticated but extravagant. Yves Piaget and his favourite flower, the rose, share these attributes, embodied today in three new jewellery sets and a timekeeper.
Decades ago, Yves Piaget, a man of contrasts and taste, as passionate about the arts as he is about craftsmanship and excellence, had the great honour of gathering not only his friends, but the entire Piaget Society around his art, around a rose.
Since then, from the Swiss mountains to the French Riviera, a sophisticated clique of trendsetters, artists, thinkers and colourful hedonists, relentless seekers of beauty and fun, have elevated the flower to a symbol of their sense of taste and joy.
To celebrate this very special 40th anniversary of the Yves Piaget rose flower creation, the Maison is presenting three new sets of novelties that let the Piaget rose’s pure beauty and audacity shine through, combining Piaget’s gold craftsmanship with coloured gemstones handpicked by our designers and gemmologists.
As a firework of extravaganza, the Rose gold set, composed of an original ear cuff porté, a ring and a unique piece necklace, contrast with the other two sets inspired by the delicate changing colours of Yves Piaget’s garden.
Piaget does not stop the expression of this fascination in its jewellery creations but also explores the world of watchmaking by revealing a new addition to the Altiplano collection. Seeking beauty in its floral engravings, this watch is the ultimate expression of Piaget innovation and design. It took more than two years to develop the rose bracelet, made from one of the most delicate materials in the world: real flower petals.
The Altiplano Tourbillon Rose in white gold is an ultrathin timeless watch for those who like to adorn their wrists with style, joyfulness and mastery.
About The “Concours International De La Rose”
On May 4th, the “Concours International de la Rose” held its 10th edition in Monaco. Mr. Yves G. Piaget initiated this annual gathering in 2012 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Rose Yves Piaget, an 80-petal flower named after him as a tribute in 1982. The Concours rewards the best rose variety in all categories with an exceptional prize: a trophy in the form of a white gold rose brooch set entirely with diamonds. Taking Piaget’s savoir-faire to the French Riviera, the Concours is the perfect illustration of the Maison’s special talent for bringing together a diverse, entertaining and fun crowd, gathered around the values of excellence and extravaganza.
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.
