DESIGN AND CRAFTMANSHIP
Designers have the opportunity to fully utilise their talent and creativity with careers at Bvlgari. Whilst expressing Bvlgari values and heritage, they create new and contemporary ideas with designs that combine luxury, rich Roman tradition, and timeless glamour. As luxury is our forte, the Bvlgari designer’s craft exalts precious, colourful and innovative materials – from unique gemstones to hand-selected leathers. Together with creatives, our artisans “translate” new designs into exquisite products of the highest quality standards. Bvlgari jewellers, watchmakers and leather craftsmen work in key locations – the Valenza jewellery district and the Florence leather district in Italy, in Switzerland for watches – where the specialised craftsmanship has always been a core value. With these strategic locations, Bvlgari strengthens its bond with tradition, and assures the utmost quality to its clientele.

"EVERY DAY IS A NEW CHALLENGE WITH NEW INSPIRATION AND A NEW CREATIVE PATH TO FOLLOW."
It has been, and still is, a wonderful experience so far. I have had the pleasure to work with great people who have taught me a great deal. There is a wonderful atmosphere surrounding us, and we have one of the strongest team cohesions I've ever seen. Likewise, the spectacular majesty of our creations is something very precious to be part of. Even before I started working at Bvlgari, I had the chance to know the Bvlgari family because my father used to work with them. Everything was a result of that: through these people I had immediate access to this wonderful world and had the opportunity to get in contact with the most important and refined experts in precious stones. From my very first day, I began to learn about stones and their quality, with mentors such as Paolo and Nicola Bvlgari, who taught me everything.
In 2013, I was promoted to Jewelry Creations Executive Director and I also manage the Design Center where all our ideas are brought to life by our talented team. Working at Bvlgari is truly special because there is perpetual renewal of ideas and creations, through continuous discovery of new, incredible stones and the aim to achieve the highest level of the product. I literally grew up with Bvlgari and will be eternally grateful to the company for my personal and professional growth. My special contribution is to express and communicate the beauty, aesthetic sense that rules each project, and the lightness of proportions that keeps a large, voluminous stone suspended from a necklace, as if it were leaning against it. My personal pride is to discover our work brought to life in beautiful creations and to see our customers admiring and loving them just like we do. There’s nothing better than seeing a woman’s joy while wearing our piece. After so many years, the passion and fun are just like the first day.
Donatella Fici - New Product Development and Innovation
"I FEEL PROUD TO BE PART OF THE SUCCESS OF THE BRAND."
I am proud to be part of the “great Bvlgari family” – all of its people are driven by a strong entrepreneurial spirit and deal with new challenges daily. I arrived at Bvlgari after three years' experience in the engineering sector, putting into practice at Bvlgari what I learned at the engineering desks. I worked for nine years in Jewellery Production Planning, first as a specialist (for three years) and then as manager. I have been Manager of Jewellery Product Development and Innovation for five years now. My challenge is to lead my team towards a common goal: to achieve the perfect aesthetics in a jewel, within the budget and on time, while coordinating the activities of the various departments involved – from the Design Centre to prototyping units, from marketing to planning, and from purchasing to production. To work at Bvlgari is to have an exciting experience in the world of luxury. Just the opportunity to touch precious stones and handle such beautiful jewellery is so inspirational, while the diversity of the company brings you in contact with different cultures – people brought together by their common passion for our jewellery.
I feel that Bvlgari demonstrates its trust in my work day after day, and includes me in the decision-making processes.I also feel I have come a long way since the beginning of my career, and have acquired invaluable skills and an immeasurable cultural experience. Thanks to the colleagues who have worked with me, and the managers who have guided me, my career has been unique and unforgettable, and has helped me to become the manager I am today.

"I LOVE THE EXCITEMENT FEELING THAT I SHARE WITH ALL MY TEAM WHEN A BRAND NEW JEWEL IS FINISHED!"
My career path at Bvlgari started in General Services and Valuables Transport, then I joined Logistics and became the manager in charge of Bvlgari Jewellery Logistics. I am now Head Manager of the High Jewellery Production Laboratory. I manage the product development process and high jewellery production. My daily challenge is to motivate the goldsmiths to create ever more sophisticated jewellery of high quality. Bvlgari offers a vast array of opportunities, allowing you to try many parts of the whole business process. I've had the opportunity to work in different company divisions, which increased my skillsets not only from a technical point of view, but also from my own personal perspective – as I have worked with many people of different cultures and nationalities. I enjoy that I receive frequent feedback – both constructive criticism to help me improve upon my weak points, but also positive reinforcement to enhance my strong points. I feel lucky to be a part of a great company with a grand history. Bvlgari excellence is found in every aspect of the company, from the care it takes of its employees to the production processes and to the final product. I love my job because it allows me to truly express my talents, in a wonderful work environment that surrounds me.
Emanuela Bonini - Jewellery Constructor
"I ENJOY THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH GEMSTONES AND DESIGNS THAT ARE COMPLETELY UNIQUE IN THE WORLD."
I started in Jewellery Assembly in Serial Production, and then undertook a position as a jewellery manufacturer, first at a junior level and then at a senior level. My main responsibility is to maintain the synergy of top brand products with the design department, respecting costs and delivery times. My main challenge is to deal with increasing complexity of the products we work with. My special contribution I can offer to the whole team, everyday, is my expertise and technical skills. I always offer my very best work in interpreting the jewels assigned to me, both from a technical and stylistic viewpoint. My job gives me the opportunity to deal with gemstones and designs that are completely unique in the world, and I love being enriched by the experience. I share in this experience with very skilled goldsmiths, and they give me the opportunity to grow and learn.I feel I am an integral part of a team with a particular focus on quality – quality of the product, yes, but also quality of the work environment. Working at Bvlgari is both different and special because it is a prestigious brand well known all around the world, with a unique and unmistakable style as well as strong ethical values – these are very important to me.I love my job because it is fascinating, creative work in which I can express my technical and professional skills.I would recommend beginning a career at Bvlgari, as it is a great opportunity for a young professional interested in the field.
Alessandro Pinzin - Jewellery Constructor
"EVERYTHING IS PERFECT. YOU REALLY FEEL LIKE YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF SOMETHING MAGICAL."
My professional path began more than ten years ago in Valenza, my hometown. After a few years, my love for art and learning led me to Terni, where I graduated and continued to cultivate my passion for jewellery craftsmanship. Then one day, a friend of mine gave me some fantastic news: Bvlgari was searching for people to join its High Jewellery Laboratory. The company involved and inspired me from the very first day, as the responsibilities they gradually assigned turned into personal challenges rather than pressing tasks. My big challenge? To improve myself alongside craftsmen of the highest level, as they inspire me to achieve skills that are my dream to master. The “small” contribution I try to add is to help my colleagues in all matters relating to project fluidity, timeliness and encouraging project implementation. I feel proud to contribute in my own way to the success of a worldwide company leader of "Made in Italy"; as at Bvlgari, quality is not just a word but also an action.Working at Bvlgari is particularly special, as each of us is given the tools and knowledge to deal with anything that’s thrown our way. In addition, although the environment is extremely professional, it is never without a smile or sign of encouragement from colleagues.I would highly recommend a career at Bvlgari: here, you never stop learning, sharing or growing, from both a professional and human standpoint. In addition to the professional growth comes the unique experience of each project, and the support of an enthusiastic team.The Bvlgari value that is most important to me is the work environment, because it is only when everyone feels truly involved in the creative process that more ambitious goals become possible. Appreciation at Bvlgari is always palpable and can take the form of a colleague’s compliment, increased challenges and goals, or even a career promotion. I love my job because it consistently manages to excite and satisfy me, yet it pushes me to put myself on the line day after day, and it never takes away my enthusiasm for each achievement, small or large.
Adama Guira - Leather Goods Assembly
"I WOULD NEVER GIVE UP THE SATISFACTION I FEEL WHEN I SEE A BEAUTIFUL, PRECIOUS, BRAND NEW BAG THAT HAS PASSED THROUGH THE WHOLE MANUFACTURING AND ASSEMBLY PROCESS."
I’ve always had a great passion for craftsmanship and the precision of handmade goods. I had already worked in Burkina Faso for a local craft centre; then in Florence, I had some brief experiences in small leather manufacturers. There, I had the good fortune to attend a professional training course in leather at Scandicci High School, after which, thanks to the agency, I was called for an interview. Today, I am responsible for the colouring unit at Bvlgari. I deal with the whole production process that leads to the colouring of the rib. My challenges began with my arrival in Italy, where I’ve constantly faced new situations. But every day I commit myself to learning more and more about my job, looking around me to discover the secrets to best perform my tasks. Despite being a famous worldwide company, people at Bvlgari are humble and always helpful, and relationships are human and genuine. It is an atmosphere that makes work all the more pleasant and satisfying. I would wholeheartedly recommend a career at Bvlgari because it is a great company with professional, skilled people. I think that Bvlgari has enhanced my personal contribution by always believing in my potential. Bvlgari gave – and still gives me – the time to grow and learn more and more about this craft. The opportunity to work for the company brings me ever-greater expertise in leather craftsmanship. I collaborate with people who have been working with leather goods for many years, and who teach me their trade with passion and skill.I work in production and see the care put into each step leading to the final product. The quality and accuracy of every single detail set Bvlgari apart, they make me feel proud to have a hand in the creation of such high-quality products.
Claudia Tilli - Leather Goods Assembly
"WE CREATE EVERY PRODUCT AS IF IT WERE A JEWEL."
Bvlgari offered me a great opportunity to expand my skills as I helped to create of genuine works of art, with leather. I was working for a small leather manufacturer that managed jewellery packaging when I heard that Bvlgari was recruiting new staff for its internal laboratory. Although I came from a different line of business, I applied and shortly after was called in for an interview. Since then, Bvlgari has put its trust in me, always involving me in new challenges. Today I'm in charge of the assembly of bags of fine materials, sometimes accessorised with gold and diamonds. The name “Bvlgari” is synonymous with beauty and elegance; despite being a worldwide company, it feels like one big family.
Baptiste Ducret - After Sales Service Technician
"CRAFTSMANSHIP, HERITAGE AND EXPERTISE ARE EXPRESSED THROUGH THE FINISHING TOUCHES AND DETAILS OF OUR INNOVATIVE AND COMPLICATED PIECES."
I started my career at Bvlgari about eight years ago in the After-Sales Service Department. I worked on our watch production team and am now an Expert After-Sales Service Technician whose job is to repair complicated watches. This fulfilling line of work allows me to apply and express my technical skills and expertise, while I continue to constantly learn. The complexity of our timepiece movements and products is both interesting and motivating. Sometimes I even have to recreate a piece in order to repair a vintage watch, because it does not exist anymore. At Bvlgari there are highly capable specialists in all domains and departments, with whom I can exchange ideas and knowledge, as well as get support. I feel in touch with the Bvlgari culture through its magnificent products, as they demand special attention in terms of craftsmanship and expertise, quality, harmony and design.
