Rêve de France
To mark the opening of the new Paris store, the House of Bucherer’s workshops have created an unusual tricolor ring in honor of France: Rêve de France.
The centerpiece of the creation is one of the world's rarest and most beautiful sapphires, and was found in a mine in Burma. Its extraordinary size of 18.88 ct references the foundation of the House of Bucherer in Lucerne 125 years ago.
The platinum ring is set with the sapphire weighing 18.88 ct, Siamese navette-cut rubies (0.52 ct), navette-cut diamonds (0.412 ct) and a wonderful pavé comprising 456 diamonds (2.11 ct).

Winner flies high
For Marco Musio, taking part in a competition co-organized by Bucherer and IWC Schaffhausen has paid off: he is now the proud owner of an IWC Spitfire Chronograph.
In October 2012, Bucherer Switzerland and world-renowned watch manufacturing company IWC Schaffhausen jointly published a special supplement in two of the country’s best-known Sunday newspapers, the NZZ am Sonntag and Le Matin Dimanche. The supplement presented the current range of Pilot’s Watches and featured a competition. The names of readers who answered all the questions correctly went into a lucky draw for an IWC Spitfire Chronograph. From the over 800 entries submitted, Bucherer was able to pick one lucky winner. We congratulate Marco Musio on his Pilot’s Watch, which was presented to him on February 6, 2013, at the Lugano store.

The magic of roses
Crowning glory to a lifelong fascination and passion: Piaget Rose.
For Yves Piaget, the queen of all flowers is muse, inspiration and good luck charm in one. It evokes sweet childhood memories and has accompanied the passionate rose grower and jewelry designer throughout his life. Piaget’s “vie en rose” celebrated its first high spot 30 years ago: the “Yves G. Piaget”, a mauve-colored rose, was dedicated to him and won international awards. Now, the rose lover brings that triumph back to life: in the breathtaking Piaget Rose jewelry collection. Delicate blossoms in gold, and diamonds in the shape of rings, pendants, ear pins and a mysterious-looking watch with 668 brilliant diamonds radiate the voluptuous, sensuous scent of eternity.
