For Bulgari, ancient Greek and Roman coins are treasured as much as rare and precious gems. A fascinating link to the past, they are as unique as the historical journey that brought them in the hands of Bulgari’s contemporary creativity. With a design inspired by Rome’s beauty, the Monete necklace captures the heritage and the eternal spirit of the city, conveying 2000 years of history.
High Jewellery necklace in rose gold with 1 bronze coin (ROMA DOMITIANUS AUG - AD 81- 96), 8 Spinels beads (19.22 ct), 8 cabochon cut Emeralds (1.63 ct) and pavé diamonds (4.16 ct).
“To ancient coins, relics of the past, we offer a second chance at life: rather than leaving them closed in a drawer, we transform them into living things.” -Nicola Bulgari
Reaching back through the centuries of time, Bulgari honours antiquity with Monete. Revering the artistic coins of yore, Bulgari contrasts them with the brilliance of its modern style. Like rare and precious gems of inestimable historical value, ancient Greek, Roman and Persian coins find life again as necklaces, bracelets, rings. The practice of mounting coins in jewellery dates back to the 7th century BC, adopted by Bulgari in the 1930s. A playful contrast of past and present, of age-old coins and modern metals, of ancient inscriptions and avant-garde goldsmithing, gleams today in this signature Bulgari collection. The Roman jeweller has modernised antiquity – an uncommon practice – entrusted only to the reverent of masters.
The Bulgari jewels, expression of Italian design and fine craftsmanship, are made in Italy.
