Limelight Couture Précieuse necklace
What can be more bewitching than the art of suggestion? Piaget dresses the skin with diamonds. Just like lace or sumptuous guipure dresses, this necklace reveals the velvet touch of a hint of skin under a covering of gold and gemstones. Both for embroidery and for jewellery, success does not infringe any unwritten rules, since it is the result of long and painstaking labour. The virtuosity of the gem-setter is a reflection of the visionary talent of the embroiderer. Like a muse, this Limelight Couture Précieuse necklace in white gold set with diamonds has inspired Piaget in its insatiable quest for perfection. A perfect demonstration of artists' propensity for pushing back the frontiers of the achievable, this necklace required workmanship of a level of sophistication and refinement rarely achieved in the world of jewellery. To paint a tapestry of over 1009 precious stones that highlight the delicate curves of a neckline, the gem-setters of the Manufacture Piaget – veritable makers of dreams – took their inspiration from the sensuality of feminine forms. The gem-setting attains such a degree of perfection and purity that it becomes entirely self-effacing, as though wishing to leave beauty to speak for itself.
