Mar 18th 2009 4:42AM Piaget has created a unique collection of a watch embedded in a ring encrusted with diamonds, rubies and emeralds. In effect the piece is like a miniature watch carrying the appeal of a jewellery piece. The ring has been crafted with 18 karat white gold in bold designs to make the piece an accessory to be worn on celebrations. The watch hands are resting on a base of diamonds.
Mar 12th 2009 5:37AM AMT also offers sterling silver, 14-karat gold, and platinum versions of the ring. These metals have been deemed “precious” because they’re relatively rare, they’re shiny, and they last. We value diamonds because they’re even more rare, shinier, and durable (and often fraught with human rights concerns). No wonder they are so expensive. Do we really need one to prove our love? BY:AMT rings are precious for their creativity, ingenuity, style, and wit–not their glittery bits.
