Piaget celebrates the dynamism of light in a new high jewellery collection. Extraordinary Lights tells the story of vivid lights in three chapters, tracing the events of one imagined evening, from the romantic warmth of dusk to fiery red lanterns released into the night sky and the magic of the aurora borealis, concluding with the peace of a starlit night.
The designs place exceptional stones in tantalising combinations: in the ‘Blazing Night’ necklace, the vividity of 12 pear-shaped rubies is a natural signifier of traditional red lanterns, while the ‘Magical Aurora’ cuff watch draws the brilliance of the display in a dial covered in baguette-cut Zambian emeralds. Fully articulated, its flexible form feels silky soft against the skin. Comfort is an important aspect of Piaget, which consider wearability with each piece.
It is a philosophy reflected in designs that move freely with the wearer; the ‘Gloaming Illuminations’ set juxtaposes sapphires in sorbet shades against a random mix of diamond cuts, sprinkling them over the neck and dangling them from earlobes. In the ‘Extraordinary Lights’ pieces, light ‘day’ gems are framed against seductive ‘night’ stones for fluid pieces that are also transformable: the dazzling necklace can be worn in nine different ways. In the ‘Blissful Lights’ necklace, the yellow fancy coloured diamond can be unclipped and attached into a special mounting, making for the ultimate cocktail ring.
