6 Reasons Why You'll Love Bulgari's Italian Gardens Line


6 Reasons Why You'll Love Bulgari's Italian Gardens Line

| October 22, 2015 | Style & Beauty

Lucia Silvestri, Bulgari’s creative director, talks about crafting the Italian Gardens collection.


First inspiration: The Gardens of Ninfa (often referred to as “the most romantic gardens in the world”) near Rome.

Collection size: 100 pieces.

Showstopper: Blue Iridescence with 187 carats of large blue sapphires.

Multitasker: The sapphire and diamond Water Symphony can also become a brooch and bracelet.

Hardest gem to source at the premium level: “Rubies. We can fnd 20 diamonds that are internally fawless at 10 carats to every one ruby of that quality and weight.”

Big gems and high-tech: “With diamonds, there’s a lot of technology; with colored gems the sensibility and the experience of the owner or the cutter are very important.”
