The Piaget Sunlight Journey high jewellery collection is an escapade punctuated by the path of the sun and the moods it creates, alternating between gentle meanderings, joyful effervescence and dazzling radiance.
Piaget’s newest collection draws inspiration from the scenic beauty of the Amalfi Coast. A land of fire, volcanoes, and azure blue seas; a land bathed in light, a land where the natural elements unite with strength and passion. A land rich in culture and artistic expressions; a land of exchanges and sharing, where life itself is regarded as an intense and refined work of art, echoing the ‘art of living’ locations so greatly prized by the Piaget Society.
Each time of day produces its own light and its distinctive vibe, in which jewellery and watchmaking creations bloom in dazzling colours thanks to the use of exceptional gems such as blue sapphires and yellow diamonds. A journey expressed through a unique path to the heart of many skills cultivated by the Maison Piaget.
Just after dawn, when sea and sky appear to merge in misty shades of grey, beige and pink, a lucky few stroll along the beach in search of new impressions and are treated to the first bursts of sunlight dappling the surface of water, creating a magical sparkle. The initial stopover of this escape to Mediterranean lands is clothed in pink gold and adorned with white opals and Paraiba tourmalines. Two bathers leave the calm waters and begin to look for treasures buried in the sand, delighting in the pleasure of losing any notion of time.
Then the dawn breaks and gradually reveals the beauty of the world. Fascinating watches, featuring dials adorned with variously shaded white opals form sceneries composed of billowing clouds and foam that inspire dreams and fantasy Certain watches have captured these images in memory of a summer stroll, by using original materials such as eggshell mosaic for their dial decoration.
High in the sky, the sun illuminates a land of contrasts and thrilling visual effects. The rocks appear carved like rough gems, tracing a random path along the cliffs, beyond which extend infinite stretches of sky and sea. The gaze is carried away by a symphony of sapphire and lapis lazuli blues and emerald greens. A convertible car has just stopped by the roadside to enable a couple in love with the South to step out and enjoy the view across the Mediterranean from a stone balcony.
Each of the elements composing this natural setting, lit up by the sun, delivers a series of tableaus featuring a flamboyant aesthetic.
