An exquisite piece of handcrafted jewellery or watch is the essence of Piaget, the high jewellery and watch manufacture founded in 1874 in the Swiss mountains, in Côte-aux-Fées, which shortly afterwards went out into the world to bring effortless chic and elegance, a magnificent blend of technology and beauty.
Piaget has always encouraged and supported the arts, and this high recognition for people with artistic talent has always been important in our society, perhaps even more so now than ever.
The joy and creativity reflected in every piece of jewellery and every watch sparkle with life and colour. It has been part of Piaget’s DNA since the 1970s, when it transformed itself from a Swiss jeweller into a jewellery house that brings colourful stones to the world.
Here are my favourite pieces from the new Possession campaign and polo watch, which I love to combine in my favourite colours. All about these colourful stones and their benefits:
An ancient gemstone derived from the Greek word mallache, meaning “green”. It got its name because of its colour, which resembles a green patch on peacock feathers. This unique gemstone shares its properties with turquoise and tourmaline and is associated with fertility, life after death and resurrection. The ancient Egyptians called it a “god stone” because it was used as an amulet that could ward off impending death or protect the wearer from negative entities. Apart from its healing properties, malachite also has strong health benefits. The green hue of the malachite gemstone has strong energy rays that give the wearer a relaxing experience.
Lapis lazuli is a semi-precious stone known since ancient times. It is a deep blue, opaque gemstone with beautiful inner flecks of golden or brown colour. It is a symbolic gemstone of wisdom and truth. It comes mainly from Afghanistan, but is also found in the USA and Russia.
Lapis lazuli is associated with the zodiac sign Sagittarius.
Rose gold is known to be less prone to damage from daily wear than yellow or white gold. It does not need to be covered with additional layers like other variants and does not tarnish over time due to its unique patina.
Unlike yellow gold, rose gold suits all skin tones. Pale skin tones or those with blue undertones will shine with 10-carat or other very pink variants.
Wearing gold rings or necklaces promotes overall blood circulation and oxygen flow to all parts of the body due to the relaxing effect of gold vibrations on the skin. Gold has also been shown to help regulate body temperature and boost immunity!
