Jewels and gems—we’re not ashamed to say we love them all, and often find ourselves in the company of those who share our enthusiasm. But every once in a while, there comes a set of show-stopping pieces that command our attention and capture our imagination. It’s a rare and beautiful work of art that showcases its inspiration so visibly without towing the line.
The perfect anniversary gift, heirloom treasures or the ideal gems for your gala-worthy black tie ensemble: if ‘showstopping’ is the effect you want, look no further than Piaget and its 140-year heritage of true savoir-faire and exceptional artisanal craftsmanship.
Recently, the renowned watch and jewellery maison outdid itself with its latest high jewellery masterpieces, blurring the lines between art, horology and jewellery with an exquisite collection dubbed Golden Oasis.
Born from Piaget’s fascination of natural elements and majestic desert landscapes, the Golden Oasis collection comprises over 100 handcrafted creations. From statement necklaces and eye-catching cuff earrings to dress watches and bracelets, each piece embodies Piaget’s artistic flair and audacious style, drawing admirers from all over the globe, including celebrity friends of the brand like Kong Hyo-Jin and Nicole Warne.
“Piaget and I resonate so well, as I too am often inspired by nature,” shares Piaget Asia Pacific brand ambassador and Korean film star Hyo-Jin, who made a special appearance in Bangkok for the launch of the Golden Oasis collection at the Park Hyatt Hotel.
“I love how the pieces are both elegant and audacious, each having a bold design that’s nothing short of a masterpiece. I’m truly happy to be part of the Piaget family and to be able to share their beautiful aesthetics with the world.”
