For the one who has it all

Bvlgari’s new Serpenti Viper Red Color Wave bracelet watch has just the right amount of razzle dazzle to ensure she remains the centre of attraction. Powered by a quartz movement, the rose gold ticker is festooned with 163 light and dark pink sapphires, 66 red rubies and more than 200 diamonds. Displaying gemstones that have been artfully arranged in gradated pink and red hues, this watch is a perfect example of the jeweller’s mastery over colour play — a talent it has perfected since the 1950s.

For the Nth time — no flowers, please

Some find flowers cliché; others hate that they wither and die in a matter of days. Either way, these reasons won’t stand against the scintillating Piaget Rose collection. Inspired by the award-winning fragrant bloom named after Yves Piaget, these jewels are an everlasting take on the proverbial rose. The latest iteration of the collection comprises rose gold rings, earrings and necklaces in a modern openworked silhouette adorned with brilliant diamonds.

Nothing more precious than the gift of time

With its second hand taking the form of a delicate cupid’s bow, Blancpain’s 21st iteration of its Valentine’s Day special series offers another poetic interpretation of the manufacture’s Villeret Women Date model. The 28-piece limited edition also features an iridescent mother of pearl dial, openworked hour and minute hands, as well as a diamond-set chapter ring and bezel. Driving the time is Blancpain’s calibre 1151 that is derived from the famous 1150. Endowed with a silicon balance-spring and a four-day power reserve, as well as a date display, this decorated movement can be admired through a sapphire caseback.
