A first peek at the new pieces coming to House of Geneva’s Horloge Fleurie High Jewellery Collection
On a sunny morning, as you stroll through the Jardin Anglais in Geneva, you are treated to an arresting view of the gently rolling greens and the Four Season’s fountain, but it’s the joy and beauty encapsulated in Horloge Fleurie that stays with you for a long time. A well-laid out parterre of flowers, fragrant and bursting with colour, set with sleek hour, minute and second hands, this clock is a floral nod Switzerland’s watch making tradition. While the colours of the clock change with the blooms of each season, nothing compares to its exuberant charm and vivacity on a warm Spring day.
House of Geneva’s Horloge Fleurie High Jewellery collection is a tribute to this most wonderful Genevan landmark. The Maison is in fact introducing two new, one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces to this evolving haute joaillerie collection this Spring. Each piece bears the hallmark of the Maison’s absolute dedication to high quality gems, ethically sourced gold and exceptional Genevan craftsmanship. Evocative and sophisticated, the Horloge Fleurie high jewellery collection is a jewelled ode to spring in Geneva.
The Earrings Numéro 7 are an artistic expression of the first buds of spring blooming in a garden, where the canvas is jewellery design, while the colours are precious gemstones. Numéro 7 are drop-earrings which showcase cushion cut-amethysts surrounded by a halo of baguette-cut and princess-cut pink, yellow and brown topazes. The warm tones of the topazes are a perfect foil for the richly hued purple amethysts. Set in ethical rose-gold, the Numéro 7 earrings are an abstract, slightly whimsical interpretation of the flower clock’s colours and shape and have been crafted with exquisite skill and precision, something we see in every piece made at the House of Geneva’s atelier. However, what I love about these earrings is that they allow us to enjoy and appreciate an exceptional colour palette that pairs the mellow, honey tones of the topazes with the cool, regal violet of amethysts.

The Maison’s second offering for Spring is their Ring Numéro 8’, a true joy to behold. Inspired by the magnolia flowers, this ring has a deep pink natural sapphire as its hero stone, which is set amidst pavé set white diamonds. The skill and artistry of the craftsmen at the Maison’s atelier becomes fully evident in the way this ring has been crafted. The cushion-cut sapphire is held between gently undulating yet tight bands of ethical white gold, such that no facet or corner of the gemstone is hidden. What makes this particularly fascinating is that the pink sapphire possesses exceptional clarity. Placed among the sparkle and flash of white diamonds, it reveals itself as a precious treasure of Nature.
