The lights of Dancing Nights, theline of high jewelry by Piaget’s Sunlight Escape collection ♦ ︎
The warm morning light, the endless sunrises and the eternal sunsets of the northern countries. But in the Piaget Sunlight Escape collection, which we have already described the Warming Lights and Exalting Sights lines, there is also space for a bright, exciting and overwhelming night. This is the music that accompanies Dancing Nights’ high jewelry, where darkness is more colorful than ever.
The aurora borealis, but also the intermittent lights of an elegant evening, more generous than ever thanks to the jewels expertly elaborated by Piaget with an equally generous use of precious gems. As in the necklace that shows a generous heart formed by a red spinel oval cut from which pink and red spinels, Paraiba tourmaline, spessartite and white opal.
Emeralds in the form of a kite
For these lines of jewelry, Piaget used the trapezoidal emerald also known as “kite-shaped”. For this distinctive model of the Sunlight Escape collection, all the gems have been carefully selected and cut to create a harmonious whole, a long and scrupulous process that required the collaboration of the best gemmologists for over a year, but which produced an absolutely exceptional result.
More generally, for the Sunlight Escape collection, Piaget underlines also the collaboration with Rose Saneuil, Maître d’Art of marquetry, who has worked for the first time in the creation of three high jewelery creations. Rose Saneuil has developed a surprising combination of straw and wood. Specifically, to make these inlaid creations, he used some fine chaff and wood of European carmine and sycamore trees. Element after element, each small piece was cut to size before being meticulously positioned to create a harmonious whole.
