Directors Notes

Serpenti, one of Bulgari’s most iconic designs, was introduced in 1948. The first pieces were jewelled watches which were designed to coil around the wrist using another instantly recognisable house motif, Tubogas. Since then, this most ancient of symbols has been consistently reinvented by the Maison in a range of different styles and designs. Every evolution contemporary and always reflecting the symbolic nature of rebirth and metamorphosis that the serpent represents, this timeless motif has been consistently honoured by Bulgari’s creativity and boldness and continues to be a highly sought after collection. This bracelet was made by Illario, who were the craftsmen behind the earliest Bulgari Serpenti pieces, their exceptional skill recognised by Bulgari as well as other jewellery houses and this adds another iconic layer of desirability to an already fantastic jewel.
