Bulgari was established in 1879, in Rome, by Sotirio Bulgari, a talented jeweler coming from a Greek background of goldsmiths and jewelers. The Bulgari house has worldwide fame and has been a part of the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moёt Hennessy) group since 2011.
Bulgari is famed for its unique style; inspired by classical art, the Italian renaissance and Roman jewelry designs as seen in the 19th century. The house expertly blends tradition and modernity; giving the past a modern look, adorning its jewelry with timeless charm. The Monete collection depicts Roman coins being emphasized on necklaces through variances in gold and silver; the cameos and intaglios are covered in saltire and adorned with diamonds.
Materials and precious stones are selected with great care. Precious gems like rubies, diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, amethysts, citrines, and turquoises are gathered in a wide array of colors. The Astral necklace created in yellow gold is accentuated with gold pellets that are adorned with diamonds and stones of various colors. Then there’s the Spiga necklace, also made in yellow gold but decorated with tourmaline; giving it an alluring but dignified look.
Bulgari died in 1932. His sons took control of the company, eventually passing it on to their children in 1984. The family enlarged its business prospects by going into the manufacture of watches, perfumes, and various other accessories; transforming Bulgari into a large organization.
The company greatly prospered in the 1950s with top-ranking celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn becoming staunch customers. This progress continued on to the 1970s with the brand expanding globally; boutiques were established in New York, Monte Carlo, Geneva, and other places.
Bulgari jewelry has undergone a number of changes over time. For instance, in the 1950s, the Bulgari watch and the ring were created using platinum and diamonds. Whereas, jewelry pieces from the 1970s were made in yellow gold. At present, the brand’s craftsmanship has shown a preference for platinum, white gold, and precious gems.
