For the past ten years Bvlgari has been engaged in a social solidarity initiative designed to bring hope to children living in vulnerable conditions around the world. In partnership with the charity Save the Children, the Roman Maison continues its engagement for youth with the launch of new initiatives.
When you have hope the whole world can change before your eyes.
In 2009, Bvlgari joined Save the Children to help vulnerable children around the world, primarily by bringing them access to education. The two partners are celebrating ten years of actions this year, during which more than 1.5 million young people have been empowered to build a better future. The partnership has raised nearly €80 million, and 300 personalities have donated support for different initiatives since the launch.

Bvlgari recently unveiled the #GiveHope campaign. Captured through the lens of photographer Rankin, the monochrome images see personalities such as Lily Aldridge, Ursula Corbero, Alicia Vikander, Jon Kortajarena, Michael Fassbender, Lady Kitty Spencer, Laura Harrier, Eva Green, Nieves Alvarez, Mario Casas, Isabella Ferrari, Maya Henry, Evangelie Smyrniotaki, Kristina Bazan, Lebanese actress Nadine Nassib Njeim, Saudi Arabian singer Aseel Omran, Ginevra Bulgari, Carlota Bulgari, Paolo Stella and Bvlgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin.
The collaborative pendent symbolises a shared ambition for creating a brighter future for vulnerable children across the world.
All wore the same creation by the high jewelry Maison, a silver and onyx pendant set with a red ruby, which retails for 750 euros (of which 75 euros will fund charity work). This latest jewel joins the sterling silver Save the Children collection, from which a portion of sales is donated directly to the charity.
To mark their ten years of partnership, Bvlgari and Save the Children also inaugurated the first Punto Luce delle Arti center in early November. The Punto Luce, or ‘points of light’, are centers created by Save the Children in disadvantaged neighborhoods across Italy to help combat exclusion, poverty and school dropout rates.
The first Punto Luce built in collaboration with Bvlgari taps into the power of art and creativity to help young people. At these safe spaces, children and teenagers can acquire knowledge and learn skills in cinema, photography and design.
