Favoured by the likes of legendary screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, Italian jeweller Bulgari has long been associated with glamorous jewels embellished with vibrantly hued gemstones. And its recently launched Magnificent Inspirations haute joaillerie range stays true to those roots. The opulent new collection is inspired by the brand’s heritage and culture, and is split into three categories: Mediterranean Eden, Roman Heritage and Italian Extravaganza.
A standout piece is the Divas’ Dream Gioco e Vanità High Jewellery necklace, which is part of the Italian Extravaganza line. Fashioned in white gold, the bib-like necklace is a captivating assortment of emeralds, sapphires and diamonds.
Its entire length is adorned with fourteen round brilliant-cut diamonds and pavé diamonds, and is interspersed with 13 round emerald beads (20.20 carats), 16 round sapphire beads (43.40 carats), nine buff top cut emeralds (0.69 carats), 105 buff top cut sapphires (9.04 carats) — which provide vivid pops of colour.
Named after the Italian words for “play” and “vanity”, the necklace is also inspired by the peacock — a symbol of beauty and confidence. Its striking colours call to mind the bird’s glorious tail feathers, while its sleek, sexy curves are based on the ancient mosaic patterns of the imperial Baths of Diocletian.
With its bold, contemporary design and striking hues, the Divas’ Dream Gioco e Vanità necklace is the perfect statement accessory for all occasions.
