Paris, France — The solstice, the longest day of the year or the longest night. The winter solstice in December is when the night is at its longest and an array of colors, shades and hues emerge. It is this solstice that the house of Piaget reflects in its latest high jewelry collection presented last July. Entitled simply Solstice, the house has brought out once again a visual feast, a sparkling world from the hand of man and the gemstone treasures of nature for a time when we all belong to the night.
