This year, in 2014, Piaget is celebrating its 140th anniversary and on the occasion of the 27th Biennale des Antiquaires, the company is highlighting a stellar period in its creative history from the 1960s and 70s, enhanced by the most precious materials: diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, hard stones and gold. 88 jewellery creations and 37 watches are being created especially for this event. The bold designs play on asymmetry, fluidity and stylisation. On some of these models, the boundary between jewellery and watch disappears completely. Colour is strongly present, notably with the hard stone dials, a House signature. A whole segment of the collection has in fact been named “Extremely Colourful”.
Rarely have top-quality precious stones in terms of colour and clarity been so powerfully utilised, notably with more than 1,500 marquise-cut diamonds, a cut that is characteristic of Piaget’s jewellery work and used for more than half a century. Creations on which these diamonds dominate are regrouped in the second part of the collection named “Extremely Sparkling”. The company’s great classics, cuff watches, dials with hard stones, and gold link bracelets are also present. These treasures highlight a unique set of skills. The collection is also characterised by great freedom of movement and multiple ways of being worn.
