Precious Places: Piaget Sunlight pendant

Piaget’s Sunlight range brings a spot of warmth to the depths of winter

As autumn fades into winter, any glimpse of the sun makes us all immediately feel so much better. It provokes us to conjure up journeys taken and anticipated, of sitting and basking in the warmth and energy of the brightest star. To keep the dream alive, check in with Piaget’s new additions to its Sunlight collection. Piaget is all about refined glamour, and its luxurious jewellery and watches embrace the brand’s exuberant and fun-loving spirit. The Sunlight collection certainly lives up to its name, bringing a burst of radiance to each piece, including this sun motif pendant. Capturing the optimism and joy of a shining sun, its rays are evoked by delicate triangular-shaped rose gold set with 49 brilliant-cut diamonds, surrounding a circular green malachite stone, which hangs like another celestial body. The intensely coloured green stone was historically worn to protect health and ward off evil spirits, and it’s said that during the middle ages the stone was often also decorated with an engraved symbol of the sun, so this piece of jewellery comes full circle in the story of the power of sunlight.
