Accessory of the Week: 130 years of Bvlgari

Serpenti Watch
Bulgari Serpenti 18 ct Pink Gold Double Spiral Bracelet Set With Brilliant Cut Diamonds and Turquoises, Available at Bvlgari (Price Upon Request)
Double-Coiled Bracelet in Calf Leather in Purple Amethyst with Brass Light Gold Plated Iconic Serpenti Head Closure in Black and White Enamel with Malachite Enamel Eyes, Available at Bvlgari $400

Bvlgari is celebrating 130 years of Roman elegance and artistry. This momentous occasion rewarded a couture private collection and an exhibition looking back at Bvlgari’s vibrant history. This Serpenti watch was inspired by the “powers of wisdom, eternity, and renewal,” as well as the sheer beauty and grace of the serpent. It embodies the affluence and over indulgence of Rome; a truly exquisite time piece that can be imitated by no one. It has been a staple of the house for many years and was a coveted favorite of  late Bvlgari fan, Elizabeth Taylor. Bvlgari is a unique jeweler because it prides itself not only on craftsmanship, but also unique color and material combinations, architecturally stunning pieces, and innovative techniques. For a more approachable Serpenti option, I have presented you with an amethyst calf leather double wrap bracelet with a jewel encrusted snake head. It holds the same opulence as the prior, but on a smaller scale (no pun intended). I love the bright, femininity of the bracelet combined with the harshness of the snake. Both are the perfect amount of beauty and bite.
