Bvlgari, the roman jeweler. Bulgari, the jeweler of vibrant, colorful gems. Bvlgari, the jeweler which masterfully combines utter elegance, with an oh-so-Roman touch of creative madness. Creativity is the master word. Passion too.

In my eyes, Bvlgari is capable, year after year, of reinventing haute-joaillerie. This is not an easy feat, given the latter’s tendency to become snobbish and heavy rather quickly. Bvlgari’s creations are always the opposite: joyful, original, the jewelry is of very serious quality… Yet Bvlgari never takes itself too seriously. The jewels are furiously feminine, colorful and uplifting. The bejeweled incarnation of the dolce vita.

Despite many unsuccessful attempts to improve my Italian, I definitely have the same problem as Elizabeth Taylor: the only word I really know in Italian is… Bvlgari.

I have a very special affection for the gorgeous Bvlgari house but that’s hardly a secret for anybody.
