Bvlgari Rose Goldea Limited Edition

Italian jeweler Bvlgari has never been one to shy away from boldness, so it comes as little surprise that the Italian Maison has transformed its iconic Rose Goldea fragrance this season with an exuberance that could only come from artist Jacky Tsai, making it the perfect gift for the upcoming festive season.

A limited edition scent decorated by Chinese artist Jacky Tsai designed to celebrate Rose Goldea’s second birthday. The illustrated bottle combines roses a nod to the main bloom in the scent, and the iconic Bulgari Serpenti jewellery design.

Known for his ability to fuse elements of Western pop art with ancient Chinese motifs, Tsai has been at the forefront of the art world for his refreshing approach to cultural differences, often with a whimsical twist. Here, the youthfulness and splendour of the lively fragrance is evoked with a vivid burst of blooms, a whimsical garden which sees a serpent elegantly weaving through the flowers.

Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice the Bvlgari icon forms the delicate silhouette of a face, a fleeting sight which pays tribute to the Roman goddess whose magic garden inspired the scent.

Now a firm favourite within Bvlgari’s spectacular line-up of fragrances, Rose Goldea – created by Alberto Morillas – is an enchanting exploration of femininity. The delicate aroma of roses are lifted by lively pomegranate notes, a fresh twist which then transitions into seductive middle notes of Damask rose absolute and grandiflorum.

It’s for rose fragrance lovers. However, it’s not granny it’s musky and sexy. The rose and pomegranate blend with jasmine, frankincense, and sandalwood leaves a woody softness on the skin that lasts for hours.

The floral accord finally culminates with a musky finish of sandalwood milk and white incense, giving the fragrance a distinctive exuberance that encapsulates the brilliance of the precious rose gold metal, and with a boldness that’ll undoubtedly help you shine during the festivities.

Any limited edition fragrance is worth investigating in, especially if it belongs to a fragrance family you love. This pretty floral not only ticks all the boxes for being an ultra feminine scent that is ideal for summer, the artsy bottle makes it a divine keepsake, that will add the glam factor to any dressing table.

Come into the world of Bvlgari and Jacky Tsai.

Bvlgari-Tribute-to-Femininity-Moscow-Banner

For over 100 years, Bvlgari has delighted with their exquisite high jewelry pieces attracting influential women such as Audrey Hepburn, Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, Sofia Loren and Claudia Schiffer.

Bvlgari has taken over the Kremlin Museums to showcase a retrospective exhibition – Tribute to Femininity – that traces the history of female emancipation illustrating the evolution of women’s desires as the world around them progresses with time.

‘Tribute to Femininity’, which opened Sept 7, features more than 500 jewellery creations dating from the late 19th century to the 1990s, charting the evolution of the brand’s style and celebrating the charismatic women inseparably linked with the history of the brand.
The Italian luxury brand’s creativity, craftsmanship and exceptional stones will be on show in the exhibition halls of the Assumption Belfry and the Patriarch’s Palace, where Bvlgari has opened up its archives for visitors to discover exclusive pieces, never before seen on public display.

This exhibit, the first of its kind in Russia comprises over 500 high jewelry creatings dating from the late 19th century to the 1990s, charting the evolution of the brand’s style and celebrating the charismatic women inseparably linked with the history of the brand.

Items from Bvlgari’s Heritage Collection as well as from private collections from around the globe including items which have never been displayed in public before, like the famous Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan’s gold and platinum necklace and bracelet with turquoises and diamonds. Or the aquamarine and diamond tiara of the 1930s worn by the Infanta Beatriz of Spain on her wedding day. Highlights of the exhibition include La Dolce Vita’s Anita Ekberg’s cabochon sapphire and diamond parure, Gina Lollobrigida’s platinum set diamond and 21-carat pear shaped Colombian emerald earrings and Anna Magnani’s collection with the famed 25-carat yellow diamond Trombino ring, two platinum diamond brooches each adorned with a large pearl and matching pearl earrings.

The exhibition also features an impressive collection of jewellery owned by the actress Elizabeth Taylor. No Bvlgari exhibit could ever be complete without her collection. By far one of the most conspicuous ever assembled; this collection features the actress’s famed Emerald Suite complete with the iconic diamond and Colombian emerald necklace with removable brooch, pendant earrings, bracelet and engagement ring given all gifts from Richard Burton. It also includes a turquoise and gold Egyptian revival mirror created for the film Cleopatra and an Art Deco sautoir necklace with 52-carat cabochon sapphire.

Bvlgari’s history is closely related to such legendary women, reflected in the displays which include a considerable quantity of jewellery that expressed charismatic image and inimitable character. Bvlgari also accompanies its creations with photographs celebrating the femininity and style of the women who wore them.

Tribute to Femininity tells the story of the Roman Maison’s creative prowess, superb color combinations of stones and mastery of craft. From their Parentesi to their Monete and their Serpenti collections, Bulgari’s creations have become timeless icons treasured by all.

Bvlgari’s Green Harrods Editions

 

Bvlgari-Harrods-Collection-Parentesi-Bracelet-And-Necklace-Rose-Gold-Diamond-Malachite

Bvlgari’s latest high-jewellery collection, Wild Pop, was a creative success story in terms of exploring irreverent themes, from cats and space droids to LP players and marijuana (yes, really!). Its parent company LVMH singled Bvlgari out as having had an ‘excellent year’ in its 2017 financial results. On Monday September 17 it will open a newly expanded Harrods boutique, with exclusive creations to mark the occasion.

Green matches perfectly with our history. As a Roman jeweller, we’ve always worked with precious stones and more specifically with emeralds.

Fabrizio Buonamassa, director of Bvlgari Watches Design Centre

Three times larger than the previous space, the 178sqm shop is spread over two floors, with the department store’s only in-boutique lift. Visitors can expect a visual feast, especially as the interiors take their cue from the Peter Marino-designed Bvlgari flagships in Rome and Bond Street – an eclectic ode to Italian craftsmanship and history, where Pantheon-inspired bronze lattice screens and parquet floors mix with plush 1960s velvet furniture. The latter in particular recalls the visits that Elizabeth Taylor made to the Via Condotti shop while filming Cleopatra in Rome and, indeed, a special VIP lounge bearing her name can be found in the Harrods boutique.

Bvlgari Divas’ Dream Harrods Edition Necklace in gold, diamond and malachite
Price on request

Ten new jewels – eight of which are one-offs – have been created for the launch, and all pay homage to Harrods’ green livery in some way. A platinum ring (price on request) sees a 4.25ct emerald flanked by two square step-cut diamonds and surrounded by additional pavé diamonds, while the glamorous Divas’ Dream necklace and matching drop earrings (both price on request) feature malachite and gold trimmed with diamonds.

Malachite also appears in a rose-gold Parentesi bracelet and necklace (above, both price on request) with chunky interlocking motifs, which are bursting with personality, as well as the beautifully articulated Serpenti necklace (£65,000), a coiled bracelet (£60,000) and ring (£8,700), which have malachite, rose gold and diamond scales.

Not only Bvlgari’s latest high-jewellery collection, Wild Pop, was a creative success story. The  jeweler is on something of a roll. Last November, its watch division picked up two gongs at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève awards, the Oscars of horology.

Last year Bvlgari’s Octo Finissimo Automatic was the toast of the town – that town being Basel – for its record-breaking movement, and this year the Italian jeweller-come-watchmaker doubled down on their revolutionary creation. Alongside the ‘standard’ steel version they added titanium, rhodium and rose gold versions. They also added a sneaky little limited edition too – in green.

Bvlgari Octo Finissimo Automatic Harrods Edition Watch on alligator strap,
£12,000 

A special limited edition model of 10 of Bvlgari’s award-winning Octo Finissimo Automatic – one of the world’s slimmest self-winding watches, at 5.15mm – has the unique signature colour of the Knightsbridge institution that is applied to the dial and numerals which work brilliantly with the multi-faceted titanium case. The gold inset numerals really pop against the green, while the typography on the transparent case-back has been subtly changed to reference the store’s own.

Inside, the watch uses the same in-house, wafer-thin movement as the rest of the range and the finishing on the platinum micro-rotor and baseplate is exquisite, and has a power reserve of 60 hours. The 40 mm size paired with the incredibly light, ultra-thin titanium case makes this watch a real pleasure to wear. It’s square shape might look large but it rests elegantly – not to mention comfortably – on the wrist. It comes with an elegant alligator strap. I won’t bother saying what colour it is. Limited to just 10 pieces, it’s a cool take on a ground-breaking watch, whether you’re a Harrods shopper or not.

Bvlgari Man Wood Essence epitomizes the strong ties between the City and Nature. Bridging urban life and wide open-spaces, the new Eau de Parfum reconnects man with his own inner strength.

Incredible freshness tinged with an Italian zest and the subtly aromatic green accents of Coriander.

Bvlgari Wild Pop Monete Watch

BVLGARI-WILD-POP-HIGH-JEWELRY-COLLECTION-14

We recently talked about the exclusive presentation of the new Wild Pop collection, the new Must Have by Bvlgari inspired by the essence of the eighties. Now it’s time to tell of jewels, authentic masterpieces of craftsmanship that combines color, passion and tradition.

The bold approach of the Roman Maison has always characterized that desire to break the rules but always with exceptionality and style. ´Most of all and all at once´ is the motto to which these creations are inspired that represent the tribute to those years where excess and extravagance were the basis of everything. Not only that, Wild Pop also wants to be a testimony to Bvlgari’s special bond with Pop Art’s father.

bulgari-collana-wild-pop-min.jpg

When one day Andy Warhol told Nicola Bvlgari: “I believe that your jewels are the ’80s”, the jeweler replied that they were not, because “We are always looking for the impossible”! A research that has produced beloved masterpieces all over the world, sometimes personalized and unique for the star system, especially the one that in New York represented the center of the world.

I wanted to create something about this fantastic dialogue between Bvlgari and Andy Warhol.

Lucia Silvestri, Bvlgari creative director

The Wild Pop collection is based on an intuition by Lucia Silvestri, the creative director of Bvlgari who, visiting the Andy Warhol Foundation, was able to see through the catalogs and the correspondence of the artist, how close the link with the Maison was. “I wanted to create something about this fantastic dialogue between Bvlgari and Andy Warhol and so in 2018 the precious artefacts are born where glamor is the protagonist. Unique and sparkling gems with unexpected combinations interpret the excitement and audacity of that liason”.

For a ´wild pop´ idea of the time, Bvlgari created a necklace-watch. The ´Monete´ is a pendant with a watch inside, with a 52mm case in 18kt pink gold with diamonds and an authentic antique acient silver coin, a Tetradrachm of Kyme in Aeolis, 2nd century BC, to be exact. The malachite dial recalls the theme that returns in the chain (length 90 cm), also in pink gold with malachite, diamonds and emeralds inserts.

Like all the precious creations of the Maison, the craftsmanship and the wisdom represent ineliminable connotations in the production of every jewel that is born through the skill and precision of an ancient goldsmith’s art that is renewed without losing its aura of exceptionality.

 

 

Bvlgari Wild Pop Serpenti watches

You might not think that ‘80s extravagance, Italian tradition and high jewelry excellence could come together in a pleasing way.

Well, based on the new Wild Pop offerings from Roman watchmaker and jeweler Bulgari, think again… On a wild night in Rome last week, Bvlgari unveiled its Wild Pop collection of watches and jewelry.

Inspired by the cultural revolution and the creative excitement of the roaring 80s, the Serpenti Secret Watch boasts the seductive charms of the serpent with vibrating colours and powerful design.

Inspired by the ‘80s, Bvlgari used all its high jewelry and watchmaking skill to present some truly remarkable pieces, including two versions of the Serpenti Misteriosi My Handcuff watch, two versions of the Serpenti Misteriosi Pallini High Jewellery secret watch and the Monete Jewelry necklace secret watch – that we will show you very soon.

The Serpenti, which is one of Bulgari’s most popular collections in watch and jewelry, in the Misteriosi My Handcuff watch iteration brings together high jewelry manufacturing techniques in a secret watch.

Two versions of the Serpenti Misteriosi My Handcuff watch with quartz movement continue the Serpenti theme, one with a white gold and malachite cuff, with the serpent set with diamonds, and the other with a white gold and onyx cuff, also with the diamond-set serpent. The malachite version’s serpent head has pear-shaped rubellites for eyes, while the onyx version uses pear-shaped emeralds.

Two versions of the Serpenti Misteriosi Pallini High Jewellery secret watch continue the Serpenti theme. The 40mm 18K white gold case is set with brilliant-cut diamonds, with two pear-shaped emeralds for the eyes, while the gold dial showcases even more diamonds. The 18K rose gold body is also set with diamonds, as is the white gold tail. In the second version of the Misteriosi Pallini, diamonds and emeralds share the stage on the 18K white gold case, dial and bracelet.

The new Wild Pop collection from Bulgari, with its vibrant mix of color, gemstones and high jewelry workmanship, is, as a starting point, certainly daring.

And as you discover the details, you can’t help but be impressed.

BVLGARI-WILD-POP-HIGH-JEWELRY-COLLECTION-15

Entirely crafted in the Bulgari Manufactures in Switzerland, each Bulgari watch is designed to feature the meticulous precision of Swiss savoir-faire and the innovation of Italian creativity, blending these countries’ traditions to produce the pinnacles of their expertise.

At the same time – and far more subtly – the index fonts have been reworked to imitate the department store’s own. It also comes with an elegant alligator strap.
