 |  February 5th, 2017

Ok Super Bowl fans- get ready, in addition to some hopefully top-notch football plays, this year’s Super Bowl LI ushers in a first for Tiffany & Co.: The brand will air its first-ever Super Bowl commercial– starring Lady Gaga. Since Lady Gaga is performing at half-time as well (for free, we might add), the Tiffany & Co. 60-second commercial will air toward the end of the first half of the game. Lady Gaga teams with Tiffany & Co. to unveil the brand’s new HardWear jewelry line that is launching this spring. The Tiffany HardWear collection consists of sterling silver and 18-karat gold jewelry, including necklaces, rings and earrings, inspired by a 1971 unisex ball-and-chain bracelet designed by the brand.

Why the Groundhog Cares About Time, Weather and Groundhog Day

 |  February 2nd, 2017

Today is Groundhog Day — when the furry creature emerges from his burrow to determine whether or not spring is in the air. If the groundhog can’t see his shadow — typically because the sun is blocked by clouds — spring will come soon. But, if it is sunny and the furry little critter sees his shadow, folk lore has it that he then retreats to his underground home to hibernate for another six weeks of winter. This morning, as has been the case every Groundhog Day for decades, thousands of people trek to what is the largest celebration — in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania — where Phil the groundhog makes his rightful appearances as the star meteorologist. He alone will determine…

Piaget has Starring Role in New ‘Jackie’ Movie with Natalie Portman

 |  December 13th, 2016

In the new film about the Jackie Kennedy — the last four days before President John F. Kennedy was assassinated — Natalie Portman, who plays Jackie, wears the original Piaget watch with jade dial that Jackie wore. Jackie Kennedy was one of the most popular and most photographed First Ladies of the 20th century and owning an outstanding green jade dial Piaget watch was indicative of her personal statement. She was known for her elegant fashions and accessories that bred an iconic style. The new movie, directed by Pablo Larrain is a blend of fact and fiction, and in several scenes throughout the movie, Portman is seen wearing the original watch that Jackie Kennedy wore during that era.

Sexy Lingerie Meets Millions in Mouawad Jewels: Victoria’s Secret Runway Show

 |  December 6th, 2016

Last night the annual Victoria’s Secret runway show took place in Paris and all eyes were on the sexy models — with feathered Angel wings — strutting not only steamy looking lingerie but also $12 million in diamond and gemstone jewelry from Mouawad.The theme for this year’s Victoria’s Secret runway left, in my opinion, a little to be desired, with Swiss Alps type gear and other unusual looks. However, the stunning Mouawad jewelry on the necks, ears and wrists could have had you drooling if you weren’t staring so intensely at other spots. Every once in a while, we here at ATimelyPerspective have to make exceptions to the “watches only” rule even when it is not a weekend sojourn. We think this…
