Precious stones are the epitome of earth’s most beautiful and mysterious treasures. Piaget Treasures jewels and watches pay tribute to these natural wonders, highlighting the enchanting power of the four exceptional stones: diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies. Presenting an infinite spectrum of shades, the exclusive collection embodies Piaget’s promise of eternal elegance. Precious stones possess a one-of-a-kind quality, developed and refined by Mother Nature throughout the years. The collection harnesses the inherent individuality of each stone, channeling the vibrant shades into true works of art.

Born from the smile of the Marquise de Pompadour’s, the marquise-cut diamond is part of each Piaget Treasures’ creation. The King Louis XV of France, under the spellbound of the Marquise for 20 years, requested in her honour a diamond cut in the shape of the much-loved smile.
Thanks to this particular shape, the light shines from the center of the stone, giving it a unique radiance so deeply cherished by Piaget that it became one of the Maison’s signature stones-cut.
The marquise-cut require a special expertise and can only be made out of a large stone, which make this cut so precious and rare.

Sapphires
The word “sapphire” comes from the word “sappir”, meaning “the most beautiful thing”. Most commonly recognised by its intense blue hue, sapphires can also be pink among other shades. Piaget believes in the integrity of each of its stones, and as such only works with unheated sapphires, giving a rare natural, intense colour. Part of its heritage, blue symbolizes the infinity for Piaget. “The sky is the limit” is an expression that fits perfectly the Maison, which stands out for its innate audacity. The blue of our opal with its countless shades, the streaks of blue-grey in our hawk’s eye stones, the sparkling blue of our sapphires…blue is the colour of dreams that are destined to become reality.

This 18K white gold watch features a magnificent 2.24-carats oval-cut blue sapphire from Madagascar. This delicate, stunning timepiece is adorned with marquise-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds as well as a mother-of-pearl dial.

Emeralds
Admired for its rare and singular beauty, “emerald” comes from the Persian word “zamarat”, which translates to “the heart of the stone”. These precious stones contain inclusions, a natural formation known poetically as their “garden”. Far from being seen as a defect, this “garden” gives the emerald its character and authenticity, making each stone unique. The most sought-after of its kind are found in Colombia, the land of emeralds and Piaget’s source for these precious gems. Their intense green shade with a slight tinge of blue is only rarely equaled by emeralds from other countries. Capturing and magnifying the splendour of this incomparable gemstones demands authentic mastery of the gemology and gem-setting art. Piaget cultivates these savoir-faire in its “Ateliers de Extraordinaire”, where real artists are constantly trying to find the best way to enhance these precious stones.

This white gold ring set with a cushion-cut emerald from Colombia of approximately 4.32 carats embodies the true beauty of this magnificent stone. Surrounded by a bed of diamond leaves, including 18 brilliant-cut diamonds, 10 pear-shaped diamonds and 10 marquise-cut diamonds, the ring’s radiant design is a tribute to Piaget’s Sunny Side of Life philosophy.

Rubies
Rubies are a fiery symbol of love and passion. Its extreme rarity comes from complex geological factors. While most rubies are typically under one carat and heated to enhance their colour, Piaget strives for the best in class with only 10% of the production likely to meet the Maison’s superior quality criteria. Piaget’s gemologists travel across the world tirelessly working on acquiring the most beautiful gemstones. It took over a year to find the finest specimens of rubies and other precious stones of the Piaget Treasure collection. Rubies from Mozambique are renowned for their exceptional quality and offer an ideal combination of intense shade and pure red-based tones, giving it an exceptional colour.

Featuring a 2.17-carat cushion-cut ruby from Mozambique, this white gold ring radiates intensely with a beauty that stems from the sheer rareness of its center stone. The ring is perfectly balanced with eight delicate marquise-cut diamonds on either side.

Diamonds
The lure of a dazzling diamond is undeniable, as nature’s finest and most ancient creation. This precious stones evoke a sense of purity and timeless beauty. It takes over one million years for a diamond to be created and shaped deep inside the earth and only 1% of the world’s resources successfully meet the standard jewellery quality criteria. Out of this 1%, only one in 10,000 is considered “fancy coloured” and in this elite selection, only a few are classified as “fancy vivid” yellow (also called “fancy intense” yellow). Piaget ensures to exclusively select yellow diamonds that meet this uncompromising criterion, ensuring a bright and intense colour.

This series of creations perfectly capture the captivating nature of diamonds. With a single pear-shaped yellow diamond at the center of each these styles, the glow of such a stone is only further complemented by the timelessness of marquise-cut diamonds. The necklace naturally permeates a truly radiant and solar spirit with its classic design that features a remarkable 1.72-carat pear-shaped yellow diamond.

About Piaget
Piaget epitomizes daring creativity – a quality that has continued to permeate through the Maison since its beginnings in 1874. From his first workshop in La Côte-aux-Fées, Georges-Edouard Piaget devoted himself to crafting high-precision movements in a feat that formed the very foundations of our pioneering name. In the late 1950s, Piaget unveiled the ultra-thin movements that would later become the Maison’s trademark and the cornerstone of the Altiplano collection. As a true innovator of the watch and jewellery world, Piaget strongly believed in creativity and artistic values. It is within the walls of our “Ateliers de l’Extraordinaire” where master artisans continue to harness rare skills that have been preserved and perfected from generation to generation, transforming gold, stones and precious gems into dazzling works of art. Through its pursuit of masterful craftsmanship, the Maison has created emblems of daring excellence channelled into its collections including Piaget Altiplano, Piaget Polo, Limelight Gala, Possession, Piaget Rose and Extremely Piaget.
