Focus: Bulgari Roman Sorbets Jewelry
Inspired by long vacations in Florence or Milan, the fine jewelry line is a well-deserved treat in the summer heat.
La dolce vita is the key to Bulgari’s new Roman Sorbets line. The sweet life as imagined by the Italian jewelry house consists of year-long summer vacations, spent in and around Florence or Milan under a wide-brimmed sun hat, half of the itinerary of which is dedicated to lounging. The cherry on top of this imaginary ideal is a cold, sweet treat – in the Italian tradition, it would be sorbet, a frozen dessert.
Bulgari has captured this simple and minute pleasure in their Roman Sorbets collection. The classical Bulgari-Bulgari disc shapes play host to a smattering of jewels cast into the pieces. Pink tourmalines and amethysts, and blue sapphires and tsavorites nestle into pink or white gold band rings and necklaces, introducing a refreshing contrast of color.
The double whammy of brand icons – a duo of Bulgari logos and the playful use of colourful gemstones – is surprisingly understated. Indeed, the spirit is more youthful and jubilant because of its embrace of pink gold – a mellow-hued alternative to rose gold, which features in their B.zero1 pieces as well. A lighthearted collection like these Sorbets are a fun break from breath-taking haute joaillerie – these are the kinds of pieces you can easily wear every day.
