BOLDNESS OF BULGARI
“For me calling at Bulgari’s shop is like visiting the best exhibition of contemporary art” stated Andy Warhol. Design, colour, shape and texture –all so essential to its own aesthetics- are also typical features of Bulgari style. Throughout history, jewellery has been looked on as a symbol of status, wealth and power, an element of fashion, a craft and, in rare instances, a form of art. It is precisely this art that Bulgari was interpreting at the time of the flattering Warhol statement.
Although Bulgari jewellery has moved from the rounded shapes, the bold volumes and strong contrasting colours of the 1980s to more articulated creations of two-dimensional designs, better suited to the deconstructed fashion of the late 20th and early 21st century, the firm has remained faithful to the traditional materials and techniques that are the hallmarks of its style: distinctive design, superb, beautifully matched gemstones and impeccable workmanship.
To this day the firm has stayed loyal to the concept that jewellery does not only have an intrinsic value, but is a work of art which possesses intrinsic and aesthetic values.
The exceptional necklace and matching earrings offered here are true masterpieces of the jeweller’s art. The design of the necklace, although absolutely contemporary, shows Bulgari’s interest in their own heritage by re-visiting their great neck-chain-and-pendant ornaments of the 1970s. The lavish display of gems, emerald and diamonds carefully chosen for their matching colour and clarity in a time-consuming process, shows the great expertise –and endurance- of Bulgari’s gemmologists. The perfectly articulated, flexible mounts finished and polished to the highest standard make the jewels not only beautiful to see but also a pleasure to wear and are a testimony to the high skills of Bulgari’s talented craftsmen.
