Coup de Theatre Haute Joaillerie Set - Gifts of Love from Audemars Piguet

Oct 15, 2008
Audemars Piguet Coup de Theatre Haute Joaillerie set is created to spark female imagination by a necklace and a cuff-watch that are true jewelry masterpieces, true gifts of love for all female creature.

The unique jewelry creations demonstrate deliciously contemporary design along with superbly accurate execution. The white gold settings have been masterfully adorned with brilliant-cut diamonds.

The breathtaking necklace, sparkling with 1,673 diamonds, including 58 gems certified by the GIA (Gemmological Institute of America), took the master jewelers 800 hours of meticulous work. Due to its infinite suppleness, the necklace clings to the curve of the neck, extending nicely down a neckline.

The cuff-watch knows how to gently embrace a female wrist. The 18K white gold strap paved with brilliant-cut diamonds is fitted with a safety jewelry clasp also in 18K white gold. The timepiece is set with 853 brilliant-cut diamonds, 33 of which are certified by the GIA. The cuff-watch reveals two alternating rows - one row with tiny diamonds and the other with larger ones.

The main elements of the watch have been created using the claw setting technique: the craftsman pushes back tiny claws over the diamond's table, thus releasing the precious stone from the metal grip and setting it off to fine advantage.

The closed-set 'pampilles' or gentle pendants enhance the glamorous appeal of the one-of-a-kind composition, adorning the edges of the setting in clusters. The whole cuff is embellished with dainty curling diamond motifs.

The 'pampilles' hanging from the necklace strengthen the playful appeal of the sophisticated and charming jewelry piece characterized by pure lines and a light-hearted spirit.

To please ladies who adore mechanical watchmaking, Audemars Piguet watchmakers have equipped the timepiece with the hand-wound caliber 2046. This is an 18-jewel, 85-part movement, beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour and providing a 42-hour power-reserve.

The movement reveals perfect finishing. All parts of the mechanism are decorated by hand. The movement has a circular-grained plate, rhodium-plated bridges, bevelled, snailed and embellished with 'cotes de Geneve' motif.
