Bulgari Celebrates 140th Anniversary with New High Jewelry Collection

Rome— On Monday night, Bulgari marked its 140th anniversary with a grand celebration at the historic Baths of Diocletian. The Italian jewelry brand unveiled its new high jewelry collection, Aeterna, in a spectacular fashion show featuring legendary models Isabella Rossellini and Carla Bruni. The event, set amidst the ruins of Rome’s largest ancient baths, honored Bulgari’s rich history and its enduring connection to the Eternal City, which has long inspired some of its most iconic designs. Aeterna, Latin for “eternal,” symbolizes the timeless nature of both the brand and Rome.

This exquisite piece, which took over 2,800 hours to craft, is described by Silvestri as “the most precious necklace we ever crafted.”

Isabella Rossellini closed the show, wearing the Augustus Aeternus Emerald Monete Sautoir. This stunning piece features an ancient bronze coin minted between 14 and 37 A.D., depicting Emperor Augustus, and is strung on 149 remarkable emerald beads.
