Things You Should Know About Bulgari

Jewelry has always been an important part of our culture. Even from the times when humans first started using clothes and tools about 100,000 years ago, jewelry was produced from any kind of materials that were available including stones, animal skins, feathers, plants, bones, and more. Today, we use jewelry to add extra appeal to an outfit and jewelry houses like Tiffany, Harry Winston, Cartier, Buccellati, among others have made their mark on the industry to attract a variety of buyers.

In this blog, we will discuss the Italian jewelry company – Bulgari. This brand is famous for its glamorous gemstone jewelry using an assortment of colors, which makes their pieces immediately recognizable. In addition, Bulgari creations include iconic features, such as a sense of volume, harmony and refined motifs that remind consumers of the brand’s Greek and Roman roots. Defined as classic yet contemporary, Bulgari maintains its 130 year legacy by creating perfectly timeless pieces for those who adore jewels.

Sotirios was a Greek immigrant to Italy. He moved to Rome in 1880 with only 18 cents in his pocket at young age with a terrific skill to work with precious metals. After working several related jobs, Sotirios opened his own shop in 1884. He laid into the foundation of the Bulgari style trademark elements of ancient Romans and Greeks and opened a couple of stores across Italy.

Sotirios had two sons, Constantino (1889–1973) and Giorgio (1890–1966), who were actively involved in the business and worked for the company their entire lives. The company is currently headed by Sotirios’s great grandson, Francesco Trapani.

During World War II, Costantino Bulgari and his wife Laura hid three Jewish women in their own Roman home. They were strangers to them, but the Bulgaris opened their doors out of outrage for the raid of the Roman ghetto in October 1943. For their actions, on December 13, 2003, the family was awarded the title of Righteous among the Nations at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

NEOCLASSICAL BRACELECT

The other neoclassical style popular in both England was Regency. Regency style closely mirrored that of the Empire style in France. Although classical symbols were still popular, Greek motifs had largely lost out in favor of ancient Egypt. Compared to most neoclassical jewelry, Regency pieces were far more decorative and colorful. Not quite back to the styles of Baroque, but certainly bolder than Rococo. In order to separate Adam and Regency styles, Regency is often termed as late-Georgian. The name neoclassical is primarily a description for the Adam Style.

The name neo-classical describes anything inspired the art of Greece and Rome in ancient times. With the English trend towards lighter, more sophisticated jewelry, neo-classical soon overwhelmed Rococo. Within the broader neoclassical period, two separate sub-styles emerged. The first was the Adam Style, as created by architect and interior designer Robert Adam. The style went back to the symmetry of the earlier Baroque period, but with much more subtlety. Motifs in the Adam Style included pillars, flower wreaths, bows, ribbons, hearts, snakes, rams heads and other ancient symbols.

BUYING A MARQUISE DIAMOND

Although we know that there is no defining standard for the cut, some things still matter. As an example, symmetry is a big deal when looking at marquise diamonds. The ideal ratio of length:width of any marquise cut is 2:1. Of course, antique diamonds may not be to quite the perfect ratio. Because of this, those which do have the perfect ratio, or close to it, can be expensive. This is especially true if the 4 Cs of the stone are significant.

For this reason, ask your jeweler to tell you the ratio, as well as everything else you want to know. Some stones will be some way from perfect. It may not be quite so obvious when viewed in isolation, but put a perfect ratio stone alongside a non-perfect, and the difference is dramatic.

Elegance is a key part of wearing a diamond. Marquise cuts have an elegance rarely matched by other types. Good marquise cut diamonds are truly something special. More importantly, good, antique marquise cut diamonds are absolute treasures.

We can’t recommend the beauty of the marquise cut enough. Whether as a solitaire or with other supporting diamonds, it is simply one of the best.
