The origins of Valentine’s Day date back to ancient Roman times and the Festival of Lupercalia, a celebration that took place in mid-February to welcome spring and fertility. From around the 14th century, St. Valentine’s Day evolved into a celebration of romance where lovers expressed their affection for each other with red roses and gifts.
Piaget’s precious watch and jewellery creations make the perfect gift for a loved one on Valentine’s Day. Exquisite craftsmanship, stunning gem settings, and timeless designs make every Piaget creation a gift to love for eternity.
The Art of Light
Piaget loves to enhance its watch and jewellery creations by adorning them with diamonds. Using various gem-setting techniques such as grain-, baguette-, closed-, and claw-settings, Piaget’s artisans work with meticulous precision. From the choice of gemstone to the positioning of each stone to maximise the reflections, refractions and dispersion of light, each step is performed entirely by hand. Piaget’s designers and master gem-setters bring light to the Maison’s creations through their art.
The Art of Gold
Gold has long been the source of dreams and is at the heart of Piaget’s creativity. Since the 1960s, Piaget has acquired numerous goldsmithing crafts and skills that it has enriched and perpetuated for over 60 years, in-house, in its workshops “Les Ateliers de l’Extraordinaire”. It allows its designers and jewellers the creative freedom to explore their love for the Art of Gold.
For those who appreciate the beauty of the stars, the Altiplano watch with a meteorite dial makes a memorably present. It features a meteorite that dates back to the cataclysmic events that resulted in the creation of the solar system. Making every watch unique, the lines on the surface are known as Widmanstätten patterns. Symbolising a love that is deeply rooted in the birth of the galaxies, this timepiece is limited to 300 pieces.
Piaget has integrated a mother-of-pearl dial into one of its thinnest watches: The pink Altiplano. In rose gold and adorned with diamonds on the bezel, this watch perfectly showcases the elegance and aesthetic codes of the collection. As it is very delicate, mother-of-pearl is very difficult to work with. Cutting a dial so thin without breaking it requires a unique savoir-faire, and rare are those who master such skills.
