Piaget always represented a style: a marriage of gold and an explosion of color, new shapes, precious gems, and dials made of hard stones.
At November 3, 2016, Hollywood leading lady and Piaget global brand ambassador, Jessica Chastain, marked a milestone today as she was honoured with an imprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre on the Walk of Fame.
Wearing Piaget Limelight earrings in white gold set with diamonds, Jessica dazzled fans and photographers alike as she literally cemented her place in Hollywood history. The tradition, which dates back to the 1920s, has celebrated more than 200 of the industry’s top entertainers, forever immortalizing them on the famed boulevard.
“All of us at Piaget are so pleased for Jessica to receive this tribute. As one of the world’s most accomplished actresses, and a truly radiant presence both on-screen and off, this is certainly well deserved,” states Philippe Léopold-Metzger, Piaget CEO. This latest honour for Chastain comes at a fitting time. The Golden Globe winner and two-time Oscar nominee, will star in “Miss Sloane” which is set to premiere on November 25th, 2016.
The unique allure of Piaget lies in the audacity of its style. Charismatic and flamboyant, dazzling watch and jewelry creations embody the radiance that defines the Maison. This passion for daring creativity was born in La Côte-aux-Fées, where Georges-Edouard Piaget set up his first workshop in the family farmhouse and devoted himself to producing high-precision movements. This was back in 1874 and marked the start of an ever-growing reputation.
Faithful to its pioneering spirit, in the late 1950s Piaget set about designing and manufacturing the ultra- thin movements that would become one of the Maison’s signatures and leave a lasting imprint on the art of watchmaking.In a world unconstrained by boundaries, Piaget the watchmaker-jeweler continues to explore unexpected creative possibilities, turning gold, stones and gems into brilliant works of art.
