Once upon a time there was a rose … the Yves Piaget rose
Piaget celebrates engagements with the creation of a Piaget Rose solitaire inspired by the true Yves Piaget flower. A diamond rose for a love that will never fade. It appeared from the 1960s onwards, like a motif dear to Piaget, whose collections are often inspired by plant life. Creations graced with gold petals surrounding diamond-set hearts, brooches, chains, medallions, rings and cuff watches all make reference to the garden, juxtaposing the timeless nature of stones with freshly bloomed feelings. At Piaget, the rose has become the queen of its creative garden, suffusing it with new light at the dawn of each new season.
In 1982, in the context of the prestigious Geneva Concours International de Roses Nouvelles (International Competition of New Roses), the prize-winning rose created by Meilland rose breeders was christened the “Yves Piaget rose”. That year, the rose won the three most important distinctions, namely the “Diplôme de Médaille d’Or, the Prix de la Ville de Genève, and the Coupe du Parfum-Rose d’or … and a legend was born.
Revealed in precious jewellery, the Yves Piaget rose becomes a solitaire
In 2012, the Yves Piaget rose will be 30 years old. Piaget is celebrating this birthday by producing an engagement ring in platinum – a rare, unalterable metal. At the heart of the delicately opened petals, lies a flower with the fragrance of forever which shimmers with the sparkle of a diamond measuring between 0.3 and 0.5 carats depending on the model. An iconic flower and an eternal diamond for the most beautiful promise of love. The magic continues with precious gemsetting on both sides of the rose. A delightfully romantic breeze blows across these exquisite creations.
Make a gift of the most beautiful diamonds
Pursuing an insatiable quest for perfection, Piaget selects diamonds with painstaking care to ensure that they perfectly fulfil four criteria – the 4Cs – defined by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). The 4Cs are defined according to colour, clarity, cut and carat weight. The combination of these four criteria gives rise to stones of exceptional quality.
Matching wedding rings to celebrate a wonderful marriage
New rings made of platinum symbolise a lifelong commitment. The two ladies’ models embody eternal refinement. One celebrates tradition, classicism and the ultimate in authentic luxury – an expression of the humblest beauty. The other is set with diamonds and is a symbol of abiding aesthetics that are as precious they are pure. The men’s wedding ring is imbued with a timeless elegance.
