Dubai, 10 December 2020 – Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai has collaborated with esteemed Swiss jeweller, Piaget, to design a one-of-a-kind centerpiece Christmas tree for this year’s festive celebrations.

With this golden Christmas tree, we wish to bring to Dubai a touch of what Piaget is all about: unique craftsmanship, extraordinary creations and a true sense of sharing in a festive spirit. We hope this wonderful collaborative holiday season setting will bring joy and happiness to all of you.”

Piaget epitomizes daring creativity – a quality that has continued to permeate through the Maison since its beginnings in 1874. From his first workshop in La Côte-aux-Fées, Georges-Edouard Piaget devoted himself to crafting high-precision movements in a feat that formed the very foundations of our pioneering name. In the late 1950s, Piaget unveiled the ultra-thin movements that would later become the Maison’s trademark and the cornerstone of the Altiplano collection. As a true innovator of the watch and jewelry world, Piaget strongly believed in creativity and artistic values. It is within the walls of our “Ateliers de l’Extraordinaire” where master artisans continue to harness rare skills that have been preserved and perfected from generation to generation, transforming gold, stones and precious gems into dazzling works of art. Through its pursuit of masterful craftsmanship, the Maison has created emblems of daring excellence channeled into its collections including Piaget Altiplano, Piaget Polo, Limelight Gala, Possession, Sunlight, Piaget Rose, and Extremely Piaget.
