GARAUDE - Hokusai Collection

Garaude’s Hokusai collection is a homage to the illustrious Japanese painter who inspired so many European artists in the nineteenth century. The Great Wave of Kanagawa is inspired by Hokusai’s painting with the same name, also known as The Great Wave. The Great Wave was recreated using titanium – a very light material. While very difficult to execute because of the unique demands of casting titanium, the wave’s motion is highlighted by the sharp colours that this metal allows and enhanced with diamonds at the crest of the wave. A great wave indeed!

The Great Hokusai Wave has also inspired jewellery watch designs. Boucheron’s Vague de Lumière, a reinterpretation of Hokusai’s wave, is born of a fabulous mixture of materials and settings — white gold, diamonds, and polished hematite. The amplitude of its volumes accentuated by the play of brilliance successfully interprets the naturalism so dear to the Maison Boucheron.

Highlighting the deep colour of the sapphire, coiled, overlapping waves evoke the rolling surf of the Caspian Sea.

THE BOTTA WAVE

Drawing inspiration from nature, Botta Gioielli’s handmade collections are distinguished by their light and harmonious forms, made to mould into the wearer’s personality.

“On a strong windy day on a sunny beach in Sardinia, a strange cloud caught my attention making me think that nature creates beautiful shapes, which you can admire only at specific moments and in a certain places...I believe that sometimes, wonderful scenes can create fantastic jewels.”

The Waves collection unveils the harmonious grace of sea-waves presented in breathtaking rose gold designs dotted with tsavorite, ruby, and sapphire stones. The collection aims to reproduce what surprises us with spectacular forms and extraordinary natural environments. When asked about what inspires him, Nicola tells you how wind can draw endless cloud patterns in the sky, tree branches can be woven into harmonious structures and waves breaking on the sand can draw endless wavy lines.

THE EBEL WAVE

Diamonds have been talked about for ages; Jean-Paul Sartre – in philosophical book form – to Rihanna – in song form. Now Ebel has entered the discussion too – in watch form.

Women’s EBEL Wave Lady watch, 30.0 mm brushed and polished stainless steel case, wave-patterned pink mother-of-pearl dial with 11 diamond markers (0.043 t.c.w.) and applied EBEL symbol and indexes, brushed and polished stainless steel signature wave-link bracelet with folding clasp.

The jewel in Ebel’s “crown” (get it?) of luxury timepieces, is the new Ebel Wave Diamond Dial. The watch features a luminous white mother-of-pearl dial inlaid with diamonds in an undulating wave pattern, drawing from its signature iconic bracelet with its wave-shaped links. A stunning example of 18K yellow gold and steel, the watch is a piece of jewellery in its own right. The watch is made for every woman who deserves her very own special red carpet moment, bringing sophistication and A-list glamour to any situation.

Quartz movement. Women’s EBEL Wave Lady watch, 30.0 mm stainless steel case with 58-diamond 18K yellow gold bezel and 18K yellow gold crown, wave-patterned white mother-of-pearl dial with 94 inlaid diamonds (0.575 t.c.w. diamonds), two-toned stainless steel signature wave-link bracelet with folding clasp.

Did you know? Ebel was founded in 1911 by husband and wife Eugene Blum and Alice Levy, in La Chauxde- Fonds, Switzerland. Ebel is now renowned for its iconic bracelet design with wave-shaped links. Seems like their work-life balance worked out quite well!
