This year marks the 75th anniversary of one of Bulgari’s most iconic designs, Serpenti. Introduced in 1948, the first pieces were jewelled watches which coiled sinuously around the wrist using another iconic house motif, Tubogas. Over the next two decades, Serpenti morphed into a more realistic style with designs such as the enamelled bracelets featuring multi-coloured scales, glinting eyes and forked tongues. Since then, this most ancient of symbols has been consistently reinvented by the Maison in a range of different styles and designs. Always 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.
