In the spirit of elegance and tasteful refinement the Louis Vuitton house of luxury goods is renowned for, the brand’s line of haute jewelry which has been on the market since 2009 features a magnificent watch collection, of which the Les Ardentes timepieces form an integral part.
Along with the other jewelry in the Les Ardentes collection, the watches feature diamonds that have been specifically cut to reflect the shape of Louis Vuitton’s iconic flower monogram. The watches prove that some things are far greater than the mere sum of their parts; the Les Ardentes watches will flatter any wrist and make a person feel dazzling.
This dazzling effect comes from the actual flower and star cuts of the diamonds; the star cut which is also on the watches features 77 facets, while the flower cut features 65. A typical brilliant cut only has 58 facets; and it’s common knowledge in jewelry circles that the more facets a diamond has, the more it will sparkle. The diamonds and the Les Ardentes watches are so delicately and intricately crafted that one may completely forget that Louis Vuitton started out as a handcrafted trunk and luggage company back in the 1800’s.
The Les Ardentes timepieces are also unique in that along with the monogram flower shaped diamonds, the watches feature intricate covers that gently glide off to the side and up, revealing a simpler, yet just as elegant watch dial.
The Les Ardentes watches and other pieces in the collection with the innovatively-cut diamonds prove once again, that when it comes to luxury goods, Louis Vuitton is forward-thinking and looking spectacular.
