This magnificent high jewellery piece is part of our latest High Jewellery creative collection, Wings of Light, while taking inspiration from the signature design elements of the Limelight Gala collection.
This stunning one-of-a-kind high-jewellery creation features a dial fitted with a rare and precious black opal. Black opals are fascinating as they reflect a myriad of bright colours when they catch the light. The colours depend on the structure of the stone, and also the angle and brightness of the light, frequently changing before our eyes. In the present case from Australia, Piaget kept this rare and extraordinary opal for five years and waited for the perfect creation to host it.
This timepiece highlights its black opal with the addition of 86 brilliant-cut blue sapphires (approx. 5.51 cts) and a colourful array of marquise-cut coloured gemstones that start with 58 yellow and orange sapphires (approx. 6.23 cts), then 14 rubies (approx. 1.41 cts) in a progressive gradient of colours to create a jewel that celebrates the best of the Earth’s treasures.
