Graff Diamonds is renowned for sourcing the most magnificent stones, beautifully articulated jewelery settings and exceptional design ingenuity. This sapphire and diamond beaded tassel secret watch is an enchanting jewel — a true showcase of such inspirational craftsmanship.
Celebrated for designing innovative jewelled timepieces, Graff has surpassed the classic secret watch configuration with this unique piece, fusing breathtaking design with watch expertise.
Combining meticulously graded and matched sapphires sourced over many months, ensuring continuity in colour, fluidity and vibrancy, an extraordinary tassel conceals a pavé diamond watch face suspended from a delicate platinum chain.
Through collaboration between Graff’s Designers and Master Craftsmen, the technique required to create a cascading beaded tassel is perfected. In order to ensure this three dimensional element is exquisite from every angle, the matching of each sapphire bead is critical in its creation and aesthetic.
Commenting on the sapphire and diamond secret watch, Anne-Eva Geffroy, Design Director at Graff Diamonds said: “For me, gemstone beads embody fluidity and movement — and so I created a design for a piece with row upon row of draped sapphires and diamonds, which lead the eye towards a dynamic three dimensional tassel. The inclusion of a secret watch, delicately suspended from a platinum chain is highly unique, adding a further element of surprise and intrigue.”
Framing this captivating tassel, two ornate brooches with pear shape sapphires at their centers are embraced by an arrangement of the finest white diamonds united by five rows of stunning sapphire and diamond beads.
The time-honored fashion for transformable jewels is celebrated by this piece, which incorporates over 330 carats of sapphires and 40 carats of diamonds, which can be worn three ways, as a single piece, individual brooches, or as a single brooch with a mesmerizing tassel.
Anne-Eva Geffroy continued: “Jewelled and secret timepieces for ladies have formed an important part of our collection for many years and continue to be a popular choice among our clientele globally.”
