Two Haute Couture Bags

Bvlgari presents two exceptional creations: haute couture bags, unique pieces, entirely hand-crafted, which celebrate the preciousness and exclusiveness of this Roman Maison. Serpenti Forever Bejewelled Velvet, in a limited edition, is an alchemy of velvets and precious stones, in four different variants that copy the traditional patterns of Bvlgari brooches from the fifties, in a historical, creative anthology. Each element is hand-stitched to form symmetrical architectures in a plethora of turquoises, cabochon-cut lapis lazuli, quartz, moonstones, amethysts and malachite. A unicum in the history of Bvlgari, Serpenti Forever High Jewellery 24KT Croco Bag is made from crocodile skin, gilded with 24-carat gold leaf. A prime example of the skilled craftsmanship of Bvlgari master jewellers, the bag took eight weeks for treatment and processing of the crocodile skin, three days for application of the gold leaf and twelve hours for the stitching. The heart of this bag is its fastener in the shape of a snakehead, the Maison's symbol, decorated with 356 diamonds totalling 4.74 carats with two green tourmalines for the eyes. A gold plate fixed inside bears the number 1/1 as proof of its Limited Edition status.
