Piaget pivots to Possession
The epitome of Piaget's gold craftsmanship, Palace Décor engraving has adorned the brand's watches and jewellery for decades.
The signature motif, created in 1961, shimmers in the new Possession collection, which is an invitation for self-expression and to "turn life on" following the new campaign's slogan.
With a playful turning element, the Possession ring launched in 1990 has been adapted into earrings, bracelets and pendants, adorned with precious or ornamental stones.
Piaget's goldsmithing and gemsetting ateliers are located in Plan-les-Ouates, on the edge of Geneva. Its craftsmen worked on the new iterations with the Palace Décor, which include rose gold earrings and white or rose gold rings that can be worn on their own or stacked together.
Inspired by the guilloché technique traditionally used on watches, the Palace Décor gives gold sumptuous light effects by meticulously texturing the precious material with irregular streaks. The hand engraving results in a one-of-a-kind pattern for each piece.
In addition, a diamond is highlighted on the jewellery, thanks to two half-spheres of gold surrounding it, known as the half-moon setting.
The most colourful piece, the Possession Rainbow ring stands out with green tsavorites and coloured sapphires. Organised into a rainbow colour chart, each stone has been carefully selected to find the perfect colour and size for each gem to smoothly transition to the next.
