CARTIER – Unlock your wish ..!

Amulette de Cartier is a strictly personal charm. A magical talisman. A dream catcher for one’s innermost wishes. This charmed piece of jewellery takes the most seductive forms. A bejewelled capsule of mother-of-pearl, onyx or diamond paving, it enchants from the first click of its clasp, and continues to mesmerise with its openwork back and a host of hidden talents. At first glance it is a target, a disc of onyx, white mother-of-pearl or diamond paving with a gem at its centre. Look closer and it becomes much more, a cluster of surprises, among them the arc of solid gold that literally opens like a padlock, leaving room for a wish and the option of attaching the piece to one’s person. A pendant, a magnetic sphere with pebble-like curves, crafted from mother-of-pearl, onyx or diamonds, with either a diamond or an onyx at its centre. This bejewelled pendant kisses the skin in a variety of precious forms. A treasured gift to give to oneself or others.

AUDEMARS PIGUET – The new collection for ladies

Like miniature history capsules, watches speak volumes about the aesthetics and fashions of the age. Over the last two centuries, the Manufacture has been crafting timepieces with the Audemars Piguet woman in mind.

As horologists mastered techniques to downsize clocks, a novel world of portable timekeepers seduced men and women alike. To possess the very latest technology and have it personalized with decorations that reflected the lifestyle and tastes of its buyer, would become a sign of distinction and status for wealthy women in the 18th and 19th centuries. The finest craftsmen and enamelers were deployed to decorate the diminutive surfaces of pocket watches whilst gemsetters set precious stones in the brooches, bracelets and pendants that shielded their valuable mechanisms.

LANDHAUS AUSTRIA – Nostalgische Auszeit in der Steiermark

Selbst gebürtig aus der Steiermark kaufte Angelika Lind das rund 250 Jahre alte Stein-Winzerhaus Landhaus Austria vor einigen Jahren und sanierte es aufwendig in liebevoller Detailarbeit. Heute strahlt es mit neuem Glanz und modernster Ausstattung. Dabei wurde der ursprüngliche Charakter des Haupt- und Presshaus im Wesentlichen bewahrt. Der Revitalisierungsfond des Landes Steiermark hat das Gebäude nach dem Umbau als revitalisierten Bau registriert und entsprechend ausgezeichnet. Das Anwesen, das auf einem ein Hektar großen Grundstück als ehemaliges Winzerstöckl mit Bausubstanzen aus den umliegenden Steinbrüchen errichtet wurde, vereint ursprünglichen Charme mit zeitgenössischem Flair.
