Bulgari

Guardian of Elegance

Symbolizing the spirit of Bvlgari, the iconic Serpenti motif assumes a discreet yet majestic role as the clasp, guarding this anniversary masterpiece with diamond eyes.

Eternal Harmony

Seven flawless D diamond drops harmonize amidst a sinuous wave of baguettes. The intricate baguette work of planes and counterplanes enhances and reflects the light with the utmost brilliance. The setting process alone spanned over five months, ensuring perfection in every detail.

A Historic Jewel

Under the guidance of Bvlgari Creative Director Lucia Silvestri, the diamond, sourced from Lesotho, was cut into seven flawless drops, marking the anniversary with 140 carats. The perfect layout exemplifies Bvlgari’s mastery of both materials and their settings.

Ethereal Embrace

Carefully calibrated proportions and nuanced curvature ensure utmost elegance. Sections are masterfully joined, linked by a special system of concealed prongs and springs. Mounted to conform gently to the body’s contours, the piece embraces the skin with comfort and grace.
