Whatever the trend du jour, custom-designed, handforged pieces always retain a sentimental value for their owner, and whether it’s timeless jewellery or a fine timepiece, Palladio’s Jason Bosa insists, “Quality never goes out of style.” “Many of Palladio’s clients have been going back to basics, like diamonds and 19-carat gold,” explains Bosa, “and the quintessential round, brilliant-cut diamond in a four-claw setting is as popular as ever.” Bosa expects, though, that “this coming year will bring a resurgence of coloured stones as the global economy settles and people begin to buy pieces for reasons other than their investment value.” While Palladio continues to carry the watches its clients know and love—and Rolex remains the most popular of these—the store now also offers “extremely collectible, limited, and rare lines,” says Bosa. One such manufacturer, F.P. Journe, limits its production to a mere 750 watches a year. Timepieces such as these are imbued with both the personal value they hold for their collector and the investment value of a collectable.
Exclusive to Palladio, the Octa-Quantieme Perpetuel by F.P. Journe, “the vision behind contemporary watchmaking,” offers Optimal Balance between force, winding speed, and energy efficiency.
Designed and handmade by Palladio, The Circolo Pendolo is a diamond-set eternity pendant representing love with no beginning or end. The pendulum—delicately balanced with one end within the circle and the other without—symbolizes the importance of loving for oneself as well as others.
