Purple, the reigning colour of the season


It is one of the most versatile hues in the world. The colour of luxury and passion, princely robes and dazzling gems. On the Fall 2012 catwalks, purple was everywhere, in Paris, New York and Milan, from amethyst jewels to violet heels, definitely sparking the season’s trend.

Commonly associated with nobility, purple is par excellence a royal colour. In the world of gemstones, amethyst is a symbol of protection and has been a prized gem for centuries. The stone is included in royal collections all over the world, from Ancient Egypt to the Crown Jewels of England. With the IMPERIALE collection, our Maison pays tribute to the noble beauty of amethysts.

Crafted like lace, the rose gold of the IMPERIALE ring, pendant and earrings delicately encases a large cushion-cut amethyst and accents the purple hues of the stone. With refined and generous proportions, this purple collection is a treasure of femininity and majesty fit for a modern empress.

In an ultimate touch of refinement, the crown delicately curved like a lotus flower and the lugs of our IMPERIALE timepieces are also adorned with tiny amethyst cabochons, expressing the splendours of the imperial age.

Whether wearing it from head to toe or more subtly with only jewellery; whether it is violet, mauve or lavender, update your Fall wardrobe with purple eyes…
