At the core of the Sepenti collection lies one of the oldest mythological symbol. A symbol seen in everything from ancient artefacts to examples of modern medicine – the Caduceus. The symbol of wisdom, eternity, good and evil – the Serpentine - is the emblem associated with Queen Victoria’s serpent-shaped engagement ring in the 19th century, The design harked back to the days of Cleopatra, whose royal décor and divine powers revered the snake. Bvlgari encapsulates the beauty of the jewelled Serpentine perfectly. The designs which are crafted from materials like 18ct white gold, yellow gold and rose gold are a breath-taking mixture of mysterious mythological beauty and modern artistic elegance.
The Bvlgari Serpenti jewellery collection first soared in popularity after Elizabeth Taylor sported the Serpenti bracelet on set whilst filming for “Cleopatra”. Since then these iconic pieces of jewellery have become incredibly desirable and collectable. Building on a vast and extremely cultural background, Bvlgari enhance the seductive symbol and the emblematic significance of the snake with their indulgent pieces of jewellery from the Serpenti collection. Each piece of jewellery from this unique collection is independently designed and developed from start to finish in the company’s Valenza-based manufacturing house. A team of talented craftsmen and artistic designers fuse innovative ideas together, creating something spectacular for the lady to wear to all those special occasions in life.
Serpenti jewellery designs by Bvlgari are also created in such a way that they can be combined with other designs from the same or alternative collections. Mixed golds are a finish that Bvlgari have always successfully enjoyed creating. Rings crafted from a mix of rose gold and white gold are a common ensemble, some of which use a diamond or two to add a glamorous and ultra-luxurious finish against the skin. The precious snake’s head with its piercing eye can be seen in many designs within this collection. Others feature subtle snake-inspired influences without details as complex as the eye-catching snake’s head.
The Bvlgari Serpenti 18ct White Gold diamond Set Bangle is an understated design from the collection that can be worn with formal office wear or something more glamorous during the evening. The bangle features polished 18ct white gold scale-like pieces that mirror the back of a snake’s body. Every alternating scale is adorned with a double diamond formation, which catches the light with every slight movement of the lady’s wrist. The bangle can be combined with the Bvlgari Serpenti 18ct White Gold Diamond Set Pendant and Chain which mirrors the same scale decoration, enhanced by a premium surface polish for enhancing an indulgent and opulent feel once dressed against the skin. The pendant is suspended from a matching 18ct white gold chain which secures around the back of the lady’s neck with a classic lobster-style clasp. Those more daring and bold jewellery lovers will enjoy the beauty of the Bvlgari 18ct Rose Gold Diamond Pave Set Dress Ring which features the rearing head of the snake, drenched in glistening diamonds. The sumptuous design coils around the finger, with the head finishing just past the tapering snake’s tale – a design for the confident modern lady.
