It all began with a passion
Rose gold bracelets, white gold rings, necklaces, pendants, diamond earrings, brooches and luxury watches... Like the flower of the Maison itself, the Piaget Rose collection is prolific.
The rose holds a privileged place in the life of Yves Piaget. A man of action, he strives to promote it as a member of the jury that heads up the International New Rose Competition in Geneva. His commitment is so sincere that in 1982, the competition’s winning rose, a centifolia with eighty lace petals, was christened in his name.

In honour of the 30th anniversary of the Yves Piaget rose, the Maison launched the Piaget Rose luxury jewellery collection, destined to offer precious variations on the theme of this bountiful flower.
From sculpted or openworked gold roses to diamond bouquets with delicate blooming pearls, diva tourmaline rosebuds or pale pink opals, the Maison’s iconic motif is constantly reinvented, calling upon all of the brand’s creative skills.
In its watchmaking version, the 38 mm Altiplano ultra-thin luxury watch and its large expressive face welcome the motif in full bloom, enhanced by the artistic crafts. The rose transforms through techniques whose secrets few craftsmen still possess. Miniature painting, cloisonné or champlevé enamel grained with gold, wood and mother-of-pearl marquetry, golden thread embroidery: behind this know-how from another time lies a precise, steady hand, executed with rare authenticity.
Over the years, the gold jewellery and luxury watch collection has kept crafts alive and well in an ever contemporary interpretation of the rose.
In 2014, the Maison unveiled its Piaget Rose Passion High Jewellery collection, with sumptuous pieces designed to be worn in the form of cuff watches, secret watches, as well as tiaras. The Piaget Rose is the queen of flowers.
