Behind the myth of the Piaget Rose

The Yves Piaget Rose is an iconic symbol cherished by Yves Piaget himself. With a passion for flowers instilled during his childhood, Yves Piaget’s name was bestowed upon the winning rose of the International Rose Competition in 1982. Thirty years later, inspired by this extraordinary rose with its 80 petals, Piaget created a magnificent jewelry collection in its honor. As Piaget celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2024, they offer a one-night stay for two at the prestigious Hôtel Château St. Martin & Spa, followed by an exclusive visit to the Princess Grace of Monaco Rose Garden, renovated by Piaget a decade ago.

This lot also includes a pair of Piaget Rose 18K rose gold earrings set with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds along with a rare opportunity to personally meet Mr Yves Piaget and gain his unique perspective on this cherished chapter, which remains one of his fondest memories.

Swiss Red Cross project : Building wells in four villages

CHF 50’000.– permits the Togolese Red Cross to build wells in four villages, giving 2 000 people a clean water supply. Trained craftsmen maintain the wells. It is a great relief for the families who previously had to travel long distances to fetch their water.

The health of a community depends on access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene. Many diseases that are particularly dangerous for infants are carried in contaminated water.

CHF 25’000.– empowers the Togolese Red Cross to build four latrine blocks in schools and health centres. Each block comprises five toilets, separated by sex. Awareness activities strengthen the communities’ collective sense of responsibility for health and hygiene and bring about a change in behaviour. The new toilets are used by 4’000 pupils and their teachers.

Good facilities are important to end open defecation, which poses significant health risks.
