The Four Seasons

adorned by the vibrant colors
of Bulgari stones

Bulgari celebrates the magic of each season with a new mini collection of gorgeous necklaces adorned with a delicate pattern of leaves. Richly carved and engraved with realistic ribs, colored stones fit together in bold color combinations that have made the reputation of the jeweler Bulgari. The leave size gems is a contemporary adaptation of a classic pattern of the Mogul tradition, known for exceptional smoothness of cut stones that adorned ornaments and other valuables such as jewelry boxes and perfume bottles. The exceptional expertise that can be seen in every detail, enhances the aesthetic impact of each jewel: articulated with a natural fluidity, the patterns have been especially designed and shaped to meet the body’s movements. Each of the leaves constituting the four necklaces have slight differences, creating an all natural and irresistibly spontaneous effect. Each claw gripping the stone is expertly set with a diamond whose brilliance highlights the vibrant hues of colored gemstones. Last detail, the sinuous lines of the leaves harmoniously blend with curved shapes of the hinges set with paved diamonds, specifically designed to provide for all light and lightness. This mini collection dedicated to the four seasons reflects once again the intensity of the aesthetic language of Bulgari, the house having been continuously during its 130 years of existence, discovering new sources of inspiration with an unfailing creative passion and unconditional love of beauty.
