I’m often nervous handling wonderful jewelry. It is a entire world of white gloves, unique care guidance, and security guards. Consider my shock when I fulfill Lucia Silvestri, Bulgari’s Resourceful Director, at the house’s Area Vendôme place for the unveiling of Bulgari’s most recent high-quality jewelry selection in Paris and she’s handing me just one-of-a-sort necklaces as if it is the most natural issue in the entire world. “All of these stones are presents from nature,” Silvestri emphasizes.
Every thing starts with the gems when she types. This season, the emerald has caught her eye, and 30 of the 140 parts in the Eden: The Garden of Miracles selection attribute the stone. The Tribute to Paris necklace, lately worn by Julianne Moore in Cannes and modeled in Paris by Carla Bruni, characteristics a mix of emeralds and diamonds established to resemble petite Eiffel Towers. This is one of the reasons Bulgari, a Roman property, resolved to convey this assortment to the Metropolis of Light for a presentation at the Italian Embassy.
Silvestri types an additional necklace, the Emerald Venus, and encourages me to not only consider it on but to also flip it upside down to see the craftsmanship, lightness, and versatility. The piece resembles an Italian fern identified as the Capelvenere, she clarifies, in an additional reference to nature. There is an plain simplicity to these to begin with daunting parts that would make them really feel wearable, almost accessible. Even the pièce de résistance of the collection— the Emerald Glory necklace—is proven as a piece to be worn four methods: as a diamond necklace and emerald necklace layered jointly, as two different necklaces, or as a tiara, generating it an even far more deserving financial investment. (It’s also being bought with a digital twin NFT.) “Don’t be shy” is the information Nicola Bulgari, Bulgari’s previous Vice President, gave Silvestri. These cherished jewels are creating statements that are nearly anything but.
