Extremely Piaget gets the 1970’s vibe

With a high jewellery collection hinting at the groove of the 1970’s, Piaget celebrates its 140 years anniversary at La Biennale des Antiquaires.

An array of green and blue creations, taking us back to the aesthetic, the spirit of uninhibited creativity and unrestrained experimentation so distinctive of those times.

Piaget started as a watchmaker, and bringing watchmaking and jewellery together has been a natural step:

This is really one of my favourite pieces from Extremely Piaget collection: a sautoir watch! So casual yet so classy to wear on every occasion:

Not to mention the Palace necklace: outshining with a real 1970’s allure, it remembers me of glamourous summer nights, long kaftans, fascinating divinas and charismatic playboys.

Not only glamourous sophistication: Extremely Piaget can also be very young and playful, just like this dramatically long necklace:
