Two distinctly different high-end brands – Piaget from Geneva and Andrew Geoghegan from London recently introduced their highly innovative lines based on the celestial wonders.
Piaget presents a vibrant take on the phenomenon of winter solstice – celebrating the longest night of the year with joy and extravaganza. Each piece from the recently unveiled collection is a blend of excellence and creativity.
Fit for a solstice celebration, the Piaget Solstice collection is both sophisticated and spectacular. Inspired by Haute-Couture outfits, of reams of laces and voluptuous ribbons, the precious necklaces replicate the patterns with a touch of playfulness. The Flamboyant Nightfall necklace’s central motif serves as a pendant drop, and it can be clipped on a ring mounting!
The Piaget Solstice collection employs exceptional gemstones set delicately to maximise their beauty. From the blue and pink sapphires from Sri Lanka and Madagascar, to the Australian black opals and unique Zambian emeralds, all radiate boldness and brimming energy.
True to its tradition and eager to explore new territories, Piaget once again pushes the boundaries of craft and creativity. Get ready for to celebrate an evening of freedom and extravagance! The night is only beginning…
Award-winning British jewellery designer Andrew Geoghegan has introduced a new range of attractive engagement rings and wedding bands that highlight an innovative halo setting and a ring jacket. The Asteria rings draw inspiration from the radiance of the sun and display a complex play of light when viewed from different angles.
Andrew elaborates, “Asteria signifies an important evolution for the brand. Although it possesses the unmistakable AG spirit, it also shows a deeper love for and exploration of the play of light – on both metallic surfaces and gemstones. The various elements within the setting each have their own strong character, yet they work flawlessly together. With Asteria I also wanted to highlight the most skilled gem-setting we have ever achieved, and I am delighted to say the precision, and the beauty of the entire piece, is something to behold.”
For instance, a finely polished sunburst envelops the centre stone of the Asteria engagement ring to reflect light. The Asteria Solitaire comes with a wearable jacket-style wedding ring, featuring fanned out polished sunrays radiating above the band. Andrew noted: “Special attention has been paid to the inner sweep of the ring, which has been perfectly angled to ensure full visibility of the solitaire’s micro-set gems.”
The Asteria rings get additional brilliance through the innovative setting studded with micro-set gems within lozenge shapes that display a luminous alternative halo.
The rings are available in 18-karat rose, white and yellow gold or platinum, with various gemstone options including diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and tsavorites. Retail prices for the collection start from £2,695.
