Passionate about incorporating features of Rome’s Imperial glory into its designs, Bvlgari began mounting ancient coins into its jewellery as early as the 1960's. Showing women just how alluring a 2.000-year-old coin can look when combined with a bold, colourful and utterly contemporary setting, today the Monete necklace captures the eternal spirit of Rome with timeless sophistication. The central coin is treasured as much as a rare and precious gem, whilst the octagonal frame is another exquisite reference to the Eternal City. Monete necklace in 18 kt rose gold with ancient coin, malachite inserts and pavé diamonds.
Reaching back through the centuries, Bulgari honours antiquity with Monete. Revering the artistic coins of yore, Bulgari contrasts them with the brilliance of its modern style. Like rare gems of inestimable historical value, ancient Greek, Roman and Persian coins find life again as precious jewels.
