Magic and mystery await in this joyous journey to a land filled with luminous light. In the last of the three chapters of Piaget’s Wings of Light collection, an exceptional Secret Watch takes flight for the grand finale in the Ecstatic Dance chapter of this year’s acclaimed collection. Two exceptional diamonds are the centerpieces in this piece which is an explosion of exotic brilliance.
The two diamonds are in one of the most sought after color grades, Fancy Vivid Yellow. Rare in nature, only one in every 10,000 diamonds are classified as fancy and of those designated Fancy Yellow, only 6% are given the highly praised accolade of vivid. They are among the most sought after diamonds in the world and these two on the secret watch are enhanced by the radiant cut chosen so their facets reflect light like rays of the sun.
The plumage of Piaget’s bird is embodied in a total of 87.23 carats of the purest of diamonds. Craftsmanship and art come together in the 491 diamonds that are cut into 69 different sizes of the marquise cut, one of the House of Piaget’s signature cuts. It is these gemstones that encase Piaget’s Exquisite Moments Secret Watch. The watch is a unique creation and is outfitted with the Piaget manufacture 56P quartz movement.
The house of Piaget was founded in 1874 and it is within the walls of their Ateliers de l’Extraordinaire (workshops of the extraordinary) that master craftsman continue to transform gold, stones and precious gems into dazzling works of art.
