Bvlgari Explores Roman Heritage With New Collection ⇒ The Bvlgari Barocko High Jewellery collection honours 130 years of Roman heritage and the baroque period from 1600 – 180, some of the greatest periods of European history.
Rome is a very important place in Bvlgari’s history, and as the Covid-19 crisis in Italy worsened, the brand was one of the first large jewellery houses to respond with a major donation to the Lazzaro Spallanzani hospital in the city. In this new exclusive Barocko High Jewellery collection, the brand delivers a message of hope and optimism with incredible collections such as Meraviglia, Italian for ‘wonder’; Luce, ‘light’; and Colore, ‘colour’.
As the name given to this collection implies, the jewlery pieces were influenced by the timeless art and architecture of Rome’s Baroque period. The rings, earrings and necklaces are large, geometric and alluring, with whimsical details that add a surprising yet majestic edge to the pieces and are the trademark style of Bvlgari.
Lady Arabesque is one of the collections most impressive pieces. A part of the Colore line, a piece so riveting as this can take over a year to create, as each precious gem must be individually sourced and have the same size, shape and colour. Bvlgari’s classic ruby, sapphire and emerald pieces are stunning on their own already, but Lady Arabesque’s yellow diamonds, pink and violet sapphires from Sri Lanka, as well as Paraiba Tourmalines, give it a timeless appeal while appeasing modern tastes as well.
Another impressive piece of the collection is the “Rosso Caravaggio” necklace, which features a rare 10-carat ruby from Mozambique mixed with shining diamonds. Inspired by Caravaggio’s renowned art style, this jewellery piece even has a mechanism allowing it to detach the necklace into two.
