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.

BRIL­LIANT SUP­PORT— For U is a unique 19K white gold ring, de­signed and hand­made by Palladio. The cen­tre stone is set in a U-shaped, raised open ten­sion-style set­ting with ad­di­tional di­a­monds on the side. It’s the per­fect gift to sym­bol­ize sup­port and af­fec­tion.
