Earlier this year Piaget launched its new Rose Passion high jewellery collection, inspired by the captivating beauty of roses. Garden rose, elegant rose, exotic rose: the Piaget Rose Passion collection, pervaded by the personality of Josephine de Beauharnais, Empress of France and wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, shares her character traits and embodies her passions. Bold, contemporary and glamorous, the new Piaget Rose Passion high jewellery collection comprises an astonishing 75 pieces of jewellery and 25 watches that echo Yves Piaget’s love of roses.
Entirely manufactured in Piaget’s jewellery workshops, the glamorous Piaget Rose Passion creations with their luminous choice of precious stones are designed to be worn in many different ways, whether a comb, a tiaraor the brand’s cherished cuff-watches and secret watches.
As a tribute to the entrancing and ravishing rose that has punctuated its history, Piaget has taken on a project to renovate the iconic rose garden at the Chateau de Malmaison, where in the early 19th century Joséphine de Beauharnais imported and cultivated over 250 varieties of old roses. While this botanical treasure was damaged over the years and little remains of the original garden, with Piaget’s support the museum at Malmaison is planting 750 old roses to revive the legacy of an extraordinary woman.
