Six years after launching the Graff Luxury Watch division, the design house is still causing a stir with captivating timepieces. Standout among the stunning debuts at this year’s La Biennale in Paris: a sapphire and diamond tassel brooch — with a hidden, suspended watch. A pavé diamond face hangs from one of two pins united by five rows of sapphire and diamond beads. In total, the one-of-a-kind piece — which can be worn as a single item, as individual brooches, or as a single brooch with the watch-laden tassel — boasts 332.13 carats of sapphires and 43.26 carats of diamonds. Also unveiled at La Biennale, a smaller but no less striking diamond and emerald watch. While in the vein of the label’s dainty BabyGraff collection, with their gemstone-set bracelets, the timepiece is entirely unique, featuring an octagonal Colombian emerald face surrounded by 35.71 carats of brilliant white diamonds.
