Jewelry watch for lady with 70 yellow diamonds Gaïa
In order to celebrate 2010, which is the international year of the Earth and of the connection of world cultures, Delance creates a watch reminding of various symbolic.
Gaïa, which is the word for „mother Earth“ in Greek, certainly became the name of the watch.
Gaïa, a DELANCE watch dedicated to the Earth
A true sculpture with lines both audacious and subtle, the DELANCE was created for the feminine woman, the woman who enjoys her femininity with enticing flair.
Along with its divinely symbolic look, it carries the message of Mother Earth thanks to the diamond shape as well as through the 72 precious stones set in a traditional way by an engraving virtuoso.
The number of stones, 72, represents the Earth number as well as the number of languages that merged around the Babel tower, so it is a symbol for humanity and unity. In the Feng Shui philosophy, yellow is the colour of centre and that of the Earth.
The Diamond shape, which is a universal symbol for life, and a Chinese symbol for prosperity is linked here with the yellow colour, which is the symbol for ripe wheat and so it expresses the mystery of womanliness and of life. Moreover, the symbol of infinity symbolizes the eternal renewal.
The whole is assembled artistically and subtly in order to create a unique and meaningful masterpiece.
The setting in an „S“ shape, which is entirely hand made and engraved (a savoir-faire that only a few master hand engravers have), conveys a precious bit of nostalgia to it.
