Known for unparalleled craftsmanship and exceptional designs, Bulgari has once again enchanted the world with its latest high-end jewelry and watch collection, Mediterranea…

Conceived as a celebration of the eternal allure and seductive beauty of the Mediterranean, this luxurious collection draws inspiration from the sunny shores of the region, azure waters, and vibrant culture. At the heart of the Mediterranea line lies an unrelenting pursuit of perfection and Bulgari brand's desire to create unique masterpieces. The collection includes an exquisite assortment of necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, and tiaras, each jewel a testament to the brand's relentless dedication to beauty, art, and innovation. The city of choice, Venice, has been for centuries the epicenter of various encounters and exchanges, perfectly embodying the eclectic ethos of the collection.

"This high-end jewelry collection is a tribute to Mediterranean beauty and essence in all its forms. For me, being in the Mediterranean region is an awakening of all senses and a truly inspiring experience," says Lucia Silvestri, Bulgari's creative director of jewelry.

Dark blue shades of sapphires and aquamarines reflect the vast depths of the Mediterranean, while the vibrant yellow hues of citrines and diamonds reflect the warm rays of the sun; the Mediterranea collection displays a harmonious dance of jewels, capturing the constantly changing colors of the sea. Shiny pearls remind of moonlit nights along the coast, and vivid rubellites embody the passionate energy of the region's rich cultural heritage. These enchanting gems are carefully handpicked, ensuring the finest quality and brilliance for which Bulgari is known.

"With Mediterranea, Bulgari presents its new jewelry and watch collections beginning an epic and comprehensive journey that starts from Rome, the eternal city and constant source of creative inspiration for the famous brand, to Venice, the main crossroads of Mediterranean influences where the Roman Byzantine Empire merged with the Roman Western Empire to give birth to inclusive and unparalleled art and architecture. With great honor, we celebrate the vision of founder Sotirio Bulgari with magnificent creations that represent the pinnacle of Bulgari identity made of bold creativity and exceptional craftsmanship," said Jean-Christophe Babin, CEO of the Bulgari brand.

Born from bold creativity and exceptional craftsmanship, the collection is a kaleidoscope of incredible jewelry creations, translating multiple suggestions gathered through time and space. With Mediterranea, Bulgari presents the pinnacle of haute jewelry, reimagining an imaginary journey across the Mediterranean Sea while reflecting the Roman heritage of the brand and the Greek roots of its founder.

With an extraordinary exhibition at the heart of the mythical Palazzo Soranzo Van Axel, the Roman jeweler shares a rich and captivating aesthetic that connects three different worlds, each linked to a specific color palette. Mutual fertilization, eclecticism, and syncretism permeate the Mediterranea collection in a captivating mix of inspirations that connect Eastern and Western cultures, Byzantine and Roman vibrations, together with references to North African spices and the sumptuous Baroque atmosphere of Southern Italy.

In true Bulgari fashion, gold takes center stage in the Mediterranea collection. The brand's master goldsmiths skillfully shape and intertwine this noble metal to mimic the wavy waves and intricate details of Mediterranean flora. The warm tones of yellow gold, the delicate elegance of white gold, and the bold allure of rose gold converge to form a harmonious symphony of elegance and sophistication.

Each jewel in the Mediterranea collection tells a unique chapter of the Mediterranean story. Serpenti necklaces glide with fluidity, symbolizing the sinuous movements of the sea and embodying the sensuality of Mediterranean life. Pieces from the Divas' Dream collection pay homage to architectural wonders of ancient civilizations, while MVSA creations bring harmonious colors of the Mediterranean landscape. Among the highlights of the Mediterranea line is the Crown Jewel of Elegance, an exquisite necklace adorned with a stunning array of vivid gems, symbolizing the vibrant energy of Mediterranean life. The necklace is a true masterpiece that combines technical skill with artistic expression and embodies the essence of luxury and grace that defines Bulgari.

The Bulgari Mediterranea collection is not only a homage to the region's opulence but also a testament to the brand's commitment to sustainability and ethical practices. Bulgari is dedicated to responsible sourcing of materials and preserving ecological balance, ensuring that the allure of the Mediterranean remains preserved for future generations."
