The jewelry fashioned by Bulgari has been admired and worn by a number superstars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Gina Lollobrigida, and Sharon Stone. In their latest High Jewellery collection, they chose a very fitting setting with the famous Villa Farnese as a backdrop for its Eden Collection launch. Created by Lucia Silvestri, the company’s award-winning creative director for high jewelry, Bulgari Eden: The Garden of Wonders is a dolce vita collection that fuses those aesthetic codes into a lapidary salute to Madre Natura, with artful evocations of everything from fruits to foliage to serpents. One of the prizes of the 140-piece trove is the Emerald Archway necklace, a tour de force ornament that expertly channels the grandeur of the gardens of Villa Farnese—an iconic estate near Rome that was created in the early 16th century for the future Pope Paul III—into a river of glittering gems.
