Mother’s Day 2019: Say ‘I Love You’ With Diamonds

Mother’s Day 2019: Say ‘I Love You’ With Diamonds

Mothers always hold a special place in the heart of their children, and with Mother’s Day coming, it might now be the perfect time to treat her on a watch especially as there is a significant change visible in the field of ladies watches; they now tend to be more complicated, in either technical execution or design. The majority of these watches shows a refinement that comes from every single detail. Precious gemstones remain to play an important role to make either just that right accent or as one of the main ingredients for these gracious watches.

Jacob & Co Fleur Astronomia
Jacob & Co Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin
One of Jacob & Co‘s signature models, the Astronomia, is now also available in a ladies version, making it perfect for mother. With a diameter of 42.5mm, it can grace more elegant wrists, while there is still enough room to show off the unique complications that this model is so famous for. The theme of this Jacob & Co is a flower garden, consisting out of different colors of sapphires combined with rubies, citrines and several other (semi) precious gemstones, floating above a mother of pearl dial whose borders are set with blue sapphires. All these aspects combined make the Jacob & Co Astronomia Fleurs de Jardin a delightfully complicated creation that entices on many different levels!
Graff yellow diamonds
Graff Yellow Diamond
One of the things the House of Graff is well known for is yellow diamonds! For their latest creation, they have used 204 of them, totalling over 32 carats. Unique is that the majority of these precious diamonds are quite large. They are all graded Fancy Vivid Yellow, one of the rarest hues for yellow diamonds. Finding these diamonds, each matching the other ones not only in color but also in clarity, is already a task that even took the skilled experts of Graff months to complete. They are brought together in something that is an unparalleled creation, as recreating it is nearly impossible. It, therefore, becomes an ode to one of the rarest diamond colors in existence.

Hublot Orlinski Diamond
Hublot Classic Fusion Orlinski Titanium Alternative Pavé
French artist Richard Orlinski now takes his unique design to the Classic Fusion. The result is just as tantalizing as his previous creations in collaboration with Hublot, and one that will be most certainly appreciated by mother’s with a modern taste. The dial now also features polished facets, similar to that found on the titanium case. Inside caliber HUB 1100, an automatic movement with a power reserve of 42 hours, ensures accurate timekeeping. The case is set with 112 brilliant cut, colorless diamonds who’s asymmetrical setting further amplifies the different angles of the case that make this watch such a typical Orlinski creation.

Rolex Day date rainbow
Rolex Day-Date 36 Rainbow
Rolex is another brand that knows like no other how to utilize diamonds in their creations. While technically speaking the Day-Date was created as a men’s watch, many women have also embraced this model as its diameter of 36mm is just right. Colorless diamonds adorn not only the dial and the bezel but also the center links of the President-bracelet of this watch. While this alone would make for a brilliant creation, the hours are indicated by different colored baguette cut sapphires, giving the watch a rainbow effect. While rather subtle in execution, the contrast against the diamonds makes them pop, and turn this Rolex Day-Date 36 one of the most tempting creations in the current line-up.
