About Bulgari

In the late 19th century, Sotirio Bulgari, born of Greek silversmiths, moved to Italy and in 1884 opened the first Bulgari shop in Rome. In 1905, he and his sons opened a store on Via Condotti, which remains the Bulgari flagship today. After WWII, Bulgari veered away from the popular French style of jewelry-making to one inspired by Greco-Roman classicism, the Italian Renaissance and the Roman school of goldsmiths. During the 1950s and 1960s, Bulgari became known for its bold styles, including the use of colored gemstones. In the 1970s, Bulgari necklaces, bracelets and earrings were characterized by bold, architectural designs combining gold links with interlocking steel. The serpent is a famous Bulgari motif, used throughout its watch and jewelry collections.

About The 1950s

The 1950s represent a decade of post-war prosperity. Fashion, femininity and classic glamour returned to style. Bold, oversized jewelry designs were more open and textural than the chunkier styles that preceded them in the 1940s. Diamonds set in platinum were back en vogue as the inspirational geometry of Art Deco gave way to a curves and swirls. Brooches and earrings featuring spray designs, mixing round and baguette diamonds, became a distinctive hallmark of the period.
