The 1930s heralded a poignant chapter in Bvlgari's history, marked initially by the passing of the visionary founder Sotirio in 1932. His legacy, however, continued to thrive under the stewardship of Giorgio and Costantino, starting with the significant transformation of the Via dei Condotti boutique.

In fact, it was during this period that the iconic “BVLGARI” logo - featuring the distinctive “V” inspired by ancient Roman inscriptions - was introduced, forever connecting the Maison's identity with its Roman roots.

This decade also saw creativity flourish. The manufacturing headquarters, situated above the Condotti store, became a hub of artistic innovation. The jewelry designs of that period were composed of a series of geometric elements: repetitions of chain, nut, and bolt motifs were flanked by stylized buckles and straps inspired by the booming machine age and mechanical engineering.

The other distinguishing feature of the period was 'convertible' jewelry: double clips could also be worn separately, while some necklaces could be divided into parts, thereby allowing the various pieces to be worn as bracelets, clips, or brooches. The general monochromatic use of diamonds mounted in platinum once again reflected the French influence. The emergence of Bvlgari's signature aesthetics was also impactful: captivating plays of light were achieved by juxtaposing diamonds of different cuts set in different ways.

Another motif that distinguishes Bvlgari necklaces of the era was the regular punctuation on the circular elements of large brilliant-cut diamonds, heralding the sumptuous and harmonious volumes of the decades to come.
