We all have that wear-always piece that never leaves our side – the wedding band on your ring finger, that little locket hung around your neck, a delicate chain that hasn’t left your ankle for decades, or that exhausted piece of string you call a bracelet around your wrist. Or maybe you still haven’t found “the one” yet. For holistic health counsellor, World Yoga Champion, KOL and jewellery enthusiast Chau Kei Ngai, her search is over since the launch of Piaget’s latest collection, Sunlight.
It was a no brainer for Piaget to use nature as its core for inspiration decades now as its inexhaustible influence. For decades now its creations pay homage to nature’s most powerful symbol – the epitome of life – the sun.
Jewellery is said to be personal – its form and what it represent should resonate with the style and values of the wearer. Which is why Chau Kei is one of many who adore Piaget’s Sunlight collection. The range embodies positive energy, happiness and warmth – all significant attributes held dearly to the yogi and mother. The maison’s frequently featured materials opal and Mother of Pearl are also seen throughout – its natural luminous and opalescence quality is complemented by yellow and rose gold casing hardware and pavé white diamond accents to mirror the same radiating attribute of the enduring sun. Aside from its obvious beauty, opal and Mother-of-Pearl are also believed to possess properties that help the wearer unlock positive and light energies, heal and promote awareness – also important values shared with the art of yoga, which Chau Kei practices daily.
In particular, Piaget Sunlight Pendant in Opal is her everyday go-to. Set in 18k rose gold the central white opal disk of milky sheen and irregular facets is surrounded by 28 brilliant-cut white diamonds set to mirror the warm rays of the sun. The delicate piece of understated and minimalistic luxury can be worn on its own, or partnered with two accompanying pieces of varying lengths in matching style but unique design for a mix-and-match layering effect. Alongside the collection’s most popular pendant necklaces are also wearable everyday earrings pieces of modern elegance – diamond studs with ear jackets appear to float from behind the lobes like sunrays, drop earrings with the signature motif in brilliant diamonds with chain tassels designed to shimmer with movement, and yellow gold pendulum earrings which dance and dangle catching light with its brilliant diamonds.
