Bvlgari has sent over 500 iconic jewellery creations to Moscow to be on display at the Kremlin Museums.
The venue will open it’s doors to the retrospective exhibition titled BVLGARI. Tribute to Femininity tomorrow, and will showcase the evolution of the brand’s style over more than 100 years.
The Roman Brand aims to tell it’s rich story through more than 500 pieces on display, spanning from late 19th century until the 1990s. One of the key pieces to see is the tiara of the 1930s. Never before displayed in public, it is crafted with a beautiful arrangement of aquamarines and diamonds and was worn by Princess Olimpia Torlonia on her wedding day.
Film buffs can’t miss the complete Bvlgari Heritage Collection of jewels that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor. Gaze upon the necklace with 17 incredible Colombian emeralds, or the sautoir featuring a mesmerizing sugar loaf sapphire of more than 60 carats in its pendant.
Remember the Trevi Fountain scene in Dolce Vita? The cabochon sapphires that belonged to Anita Ekberg have also made their way to Moscow for the exhibit.
Another section of the exhibition will showcase the icons of Bvlgari’s creativity as well as pioneering motifs and techniques that subverted the traditional approach to jewellery, gracing dynamic and modern women from day to night.
Emblems of Bvlgari’s talented reinvention of its Roman roots, the pieces on display featuring ancient coins fully convey the Maison’s reverence for the past, expressed with an avant-garde vision. The same visionary attitude led to the introduction of the BVLGARI BVLGARI timepiece in the 1970s, a groundbreaking precursor of the logo-mania pervading fashion in the 1990s.
Finally, the many extraordinary variations of the sinuous Serpenti creations on display, spanning over four decades, illustrate the unceasing stylistic evolution of a Maison that is loyal to its strong identity yet constantly projected into the future. The true partner of a woman who wants to be herself, unconditionally.
BVLGARI. Tribute to Femininity will run until January 13, 2019.
