Bulgari unveils vibrant new Festa collection

Colourful new jewellery that evokes la dolce vita.

By Carolyn Meers 19/07/2017

Italian jewellery house Bulgari has unveiled its new Festa collection, a colourful medley of designs that call to mind some of Italy's most vibrant traditions — from _gelati_ to Roman royal style and beyond.

Going on 133 years in the jewellery business, Bulgari is reasserting its reputation as one of the planet's foremost authorities on large, high-quality gems with Festa. The collection is comprised of more than 100 pieces — brooches, earrings, rings, and necklaces — spread over three lines: Festa Italiana, Regal Festa, and Festa of Precious Stones.

Festa Italiana focuses on time-honoured festivities, like colourful rings topped with luscious cake-like baubles; brooches in the form of ice cream desserts. The famed Palio horse race in Siena and the Tarantella folk dance are also payed homage in this line, which boasts a colourful medley of rubies, malachite, jade, coral, and turquoise.

Pieces in the Regal Festa line bow to Rome's bold, fashionable _princispessas_ with large diamonds, pink gold, and grand sapphires in ornate platinum settings. In Festa of Precious Stones, Bulgari crafted designs that spotlight stunning stones from around the world — amethysts, diamonds, rubies, and emeralds — many of which took years to find and procure.

Among the standouts is Il Magnifico, a diamond-studded necklace that framed a 180-carat sugarloaf sapphire in a pendant; and Il Grandioso, a necklace that spotlights a 53-carat Colombian emerald.
