In 2022, Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth. In homage to one the most iconic figures of our time, Bulgari created the Jubilee Emerald Garden tiara, a creation as unique as the legendary woman who inspired it.
HER MAJESTY THE EMERALD
Offering an exceptional balance of color and weight, the precious emerald chosen for this one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry boasts an incredible 63.44 carats, an intense shade of green and glorious transparency.
A special little surprise that gives a timeless piece a modern edge: via a discreet and seamlessly integrated mechanism, the tiara can be converted into a regal necklace, which sits delicately on the neck with its supple yet solid structure.
THE QUEEN'S GARDEN
The central emerald is accentuated by an exquisite bouquet of emeralds and diamonds, all flawlessly hand-set by an expert craftsman with the ability to ensure each single gemstone refracts light in the best possible way.
Inviting you to discover the unrivaled beauty of an enchanting garden, the stunning emerald features an elegant carved floral motif. Carved stones only come from Jaipur, according to a tradition that dates back to the Mughal Empire of the 16th century, which itself took inspiration from Persian art and its lively floral patterns.
In another nod to the celebrations for this exceptional Platinum Jubilee, the Jubilee Emerald Garden tiara is crafted in platinum, while its floral design stems both from the main inspiration behind the Eden High Jewelry collection and motifs rooted in Mughal tradition. A masterpiece of craftsmanship, which took 1,500 hours to complete.
A Precious Match
In keeping with the celebratory theme, Bulgari presents an exclusive Divas’ Dream High Jewelry watch that matches the magnificent tiara. Crafted in 18 kt white gold, set with 8 Zambian emeralds (18.40 ct) and with 27.5 carats’ worth of diamonds, this exquisite timepiece offers a remarkably exquisite take on the collection’s signature fan-shaped motif, inspired by the decorative floor mosaics of Rome’s ancient Caracalla Baths.
This dazzling High Jewelry watch needed the efforts of five master craftsmen and around 1,000 hours to complete. The enchanting emeralds have been cut beautifully to convey the iconic and ultra-feminine fan-like effect, and the tiny, unique inclusions make each stone unique, powerful and all the more vibrant, offering one a fleeting glimpse into a previous "garden".
