A Vintage Bulgari Monete Necklace, circa 1980
The iconic Bulgari Monete jewels were launched mid 1960s, driven by Nicola Bulgari, a keen coin collector. There is serious demand for vintage Bulgari Monete necklaces from collectors around the world, and given they are not only remarkable pieces of jewellery, they are also jewelled historical artefacts we are delighted to present this necklace as December’s Jewel of The Month.
With Guy Burton, our Managing Director…
“I have noticed that interest in men’s jewellery continues to grow significantly. Men are embracing jewellery, both vintage and contemporary and expanding beyond cufflinks and watches to every other area of jewellery. Vintage signed chains and bracelets are highly sought after, as are sophisticated brooches to adorn a lapel. Our gypsy-set ring collection is particularly popular and frequently chosen by men, each one is unique and the flush settings give the rings an understated luxury, are so easy to wear yet still showcasing some exceptional gemstones”
