FrontRunners: P For Pearl

  • Laurie Kahle

Piaget’s first-ever pearl jewelry collection, Pearlissima by Piaget (800.359.4538, www.piaget.com), features a mark of distinction that could easily go unnoticed. With a nod to status logos, designer Ella Gafter subtly incorporated two inverted, diamond-pavéed Ps into each of the collection’s 12 pieces. The collection is the first such collaboration for Gafter, who has been affectionately dubbed the Queen of Pearls by her elite private clientele.

For the Pearlissima by Piaget collection, Gafter selected Australian pearls, the rarest and largest (16 to 18 millimeters) variety of South Sea pearls, which are acclaimed for their exceptional luster.
