Without a doubt, Bvlgari is one of the masters in jewellery and watchmaking. As a maison with over a century of experience, Bvlgari has created magnificent pieces that have been worn by some of the world’s most famous individuals like Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly and many others. The masterpieces have appeared on the silver screen, in award ceremonies and film festivals. Besides being an expert jeweller, Bvlgari’s technical capabilities transcend its niche and extend into creating mesmerising yet sophisticated timepieces.
With the Mediterranean as its source of inspiration, the high jewellery and watchmaking launch event took place in Venice. Aside from its picturesque setting, the floating city was once the centre of commerce and a melting pot of cultures. Different civilisations from the Byzantine, Moorish, Ottoman, Sicily, and Rome made a pitstop in the Venetian empire for commerce. The mix of influences resulted in a unique architectural style called Venetian Gothic. For the launch, Bvlgari invited guests and celebrities to the famous Palazzo Ducale, one of the city’s eternal symbols, to celebrate this momentous occasion. Bvlgari’s house ambassadors like Priyanka Chopra, Zendaya, Anne Hathaway, Lisa from Blackpink, Yang Yang and Liu Yifei wore pieces from the newly unveiled high jewellery and high watchmaking collection, Mediterranea.
