Bulgari Celebrates Its Roman Roots

No contributor

Bulgari will be celebrating its Roman influences with an upcoming exhibition featuring pieces dating all the way back to the 1930s that demonstrate its Roman aesthetic and heritage. The brand was founded in Rome as a jewelry shop in 1884 before it achieved international success. Its creations often reflect the city’s mosaics, streets, bridges, and buildings through the use of coins, gold and other precious stones.

“BVLGARI & ROME: Eternal Inspiration” will show pieces such as a tubogas choker that includes a coin from 336 BC picturing Alexander the Great and a gold and diamond necklace resembles the vaulted ceiling of the Pantheon. Angels with wings are represented in the shape of diamonds. Multicolored sapphires come together in a necklace to represent Via Appia. “Bulgari owes so much to the magical city of Rome, where the present and past coexist. Our collection aims to capture and pay homage to the city’s strength of history, timeless beauty and unceasing flow of progress,” said Bulgari’s Chairman Jean-Christophe Babin.

The exhibition will take place at the brand’s New York flagship store. The American Numismatic Society will lend Ancient Roman Republic coins to join the pieces on loan from both private collections and the Bulgari archive. It will be open to the public by appointment beginning October 15.
