The gleaming California sunshine and a profusion of Piaget diamond jewelry made for a dazzling red carpet at this weekend’s Spirit Awards, held on the beach in Santa Monica. Although considered to be more casual than the Oscars, the event attracts the biggest stars in independent film who turn to Piaget to add a little sparkle to their attire.

Best Supporting Female nominee, Janet McTeer, looked stunning in Piaget Rose Fairy earrings, crafted in white gold with brilliant-cut and pear-shaped diamonds, while Best Male Lead nominee, Demián Bichir, accented his look with a Piaget Polo FortyFive luxury watch. Hollywood’s newest leading lady, Jessica Chastain, accessorized her red carpet look with a Piaget Limelight ring and Lucy Liu looked effortlessly chic in a yellow gold Piaget Possession cuff bracelet with matching earrings and diamond paved ring.

The Piaget Producer’s Award has become a coveted prize at the Spirit Awards, honoring emerging producers who demonstrate creativity, tenacity, and vision to produce quality, independent films, despite limited resources. This year the award was bestowed upon Sophia Lin for her outstanding production of “Take Shelter.”

Following the afternoon ceremony, celebrities and VIP guests joined Piaget CEO Philippe Léopold-Metzger in the brand’s exclusive backstage lounge. This year the space had been magically transformed into a lush garden party filled with thousands of fragrant Yves Piaget roses and a cascading waterfall. On display were dazzling creations from Piaget’s newest high jewellery and watch collections.
