The G-Gucci collection welcomes three new precious watch models set with diamonds on the emblematic G-shaped bezel and discreetly picked up on the dial. It will be a tough choice between two small and one medium-sized interpretations, all fitted with a five-row bracelet featuring small square links. They will make a perfect match for the Icon rings on which the brand signature appears as the double G logo. After the success of the black version in synthetic corundum, here come their white counterparts in zirconium powder. The latter is not an alloy, but instead an innovative, pure and anti-allergenic material used throughout rather than just as a coating – which means these rings will not tarnish. Gucci offers a single width and two variations : one simply rimmed with yellow gold rings, and the other additionally enhanced with cabochon studs lending a more contemporary touch.
