Fabergé Summer in Provence

The newest Fabergé high jewellery timepiece, Summer in Provence, captures the blend of colours and happiness that characterise the south of France. Designed to resemble a garland of flowers woven on a hot afternoon, Summer in Provence offers a new vision of jewellery timepieces.

The sophisticated skills of the Fabergé work masters are evident in the delicacy with which the precious gems are interlaced with coloured fine stones and hard stone micro sculptures. A series of interlocking precious ribbons move across a rounded pebble, in which the movement of the watch is housed. The lines intermingle and envelop the perfectly round and harmonious contours of the case.
Two flexible little bands in the lower section are filled with enamel to highlight the ‘Fabergé’ name with which the piece is emblazoned. Others, snow set with precious gemstones, unfurls across the dial to envelop the case. The softly shaped bracelet, made of diamonds strung together like beads on a necklace, caresses the wrist. In the centre, a tiny floral chains meanders over its entire length like a garland of lights, it mimics the gentle swaying of wild flowers in the breeze.
The Summer in Provence timepieces come in diamond, emerald and multicoloured sapphire versions, with a matching jewellery suite composed of a necklace, earrings and ring. All three variations of Summer in Provence offer a spirited assembly of fine gems, rare stones and materials. The white diamonds reflect the light while the rich interplay of hues comes from the emeralds, Paraiba tourmalines, rubies and sapphires. The flowers, crafted in white mother of pearl, are adorned with petals of gems such as diamonds or chrysoprases. Grand feu enamel was incorporated into the dial to produce the monochrome ribbons. At its heart beats a manufacture calibre powering the hours and minute indications. It is protects by a white gold case topped with a domes sapphire crystal and a transparent caseback revealing the interior of the calibre.
