Born from the eternity of Rome’s architecture, the design of the Parentesi necklace is inspired by the travertine junctions of the roman pavements. This unmistakable motif, originating in the late 1970’s, became immediately a trademark to Bulgari and a statement for strong, voluminous, and almost endlessly modular jewelry, reflecting the infinite spirit of the Eternal City.

From the eternity of Rome’s architecture was born the design of Parentesi, the interlocking metal components of Bulgari’s modular jewels. Their shape being inspired by the stones that pave the roads of Rome, the Parentesi (“parentheses” in Italian) pattern has today become a jewellery staple for the modern woman.
The Bulgari jewels, expression of Italian design and fine craftsmanship, are made in Italy.
The first shot of Bulgari modular jewellery was the Parentesi collection: Rome was a source of inspiration and the Parentesi sign came from a detail of the Eternal City pavements, the travertine junctions used to link the stone blocks.
