If I want to choose a “jewelry” endorsement for the Barocko high jewelry collection, I will vote for the “Lady Aarabesque” necklace! First of all, in terms of styling, this necklace uses a “bib” design, which is a very classic design of Bulgari, which fits closely with the chest shape. Secondly, in the choice of gemstones, Sri Lanka’s pink and purple sapphires are paired with green Paraiba tourmalines. It is said that this is the first time Bulgari has tried this kind of combination! Various colored gemstones are also decorated with diamonds of different shapes.

Before talking about the “Emerald Star” necklace, we found an architectural drawing for everyone. This Roman San Ivara Church is considered a masterpiece of Baroque church architecture, especially the dome part is composed of “dimple” design and geometric bodies. It may feel “plain”, but its interior can have a dazzling and amazing complex structure.

And this “Emerald Star” necklace is inspired by the dome of Saint Ivard Church. Rows of rows of pavé diamonds are arranged in an orderly manner to echo the delicate and complex visual effects of the dome.

In addition to the specially designed shapes, a lot of thoughts have also been given to the cutting and matching of gemstones. Everyone sees the 7 pebble-shaped emeralds inlaid on the necklace. If you look closely, you can see that their shapes are not exactly the same. This is exactly what Bulgari “intentionally did”, which is different from the traditional jewelry creation The requirements of gem consistency, each emerald of this necklace is unique, and round pearls are added, which echoes and contrasts in color matching. In order to show the interlaced feeling between the gem and the structure, the masters of jewelry craftsman invested more than 900 man-hours to adjust the volume and proportion of the gem to the best condition.

Cupola Necklace

The “Cupola” necklace, which is also inspired by the Baroque church and also made of emeralds and diamonds, has another flavor. During the Baroque period, there was a well-known muralist Andrea Pozzo. One of his most famous works is the mural on the dome of St. Ignatius Church in Rome.

The inspiration for the structure design of the “Cupola” necklace comes from this visual fantasy. Here everyone should pay attention to the structure design of the necklace. The center of the necklace is inlaid with a Sugar-loaf Cut Colombian emerald. I believe you are familiar with this cut. In addition to the transliterated name, it has many other names, such as sugar loaf, Bread Mountain, Sugar Bun Mountain, etc.

Although the Sugarloaf cut does not have many facets, it can show the original appearance of the gem to the greatest extent, so it can be imagined that the requirements for the gem itself are quite high. And it is often used to design Art Deco style jewelry. Everyone sees this “magnificent dome” necklace full of Art Deco style.

Through the use of gorgeous and full shapes, colorful gems and modern aesthetic design, Bulgari has reproduced the Baroque art that was born centuries ago.
