notes

As one of the world’s distinguished jewelry houses, Bulgari holds a place in history as a paragon of superb craftsmanship and style, spanning over more than a century. In 1879, Sotirio Bulgari moved to Rome where he opened his first shop on the Via Sistina and in 1905, he transferred to Via dei Condotti. Upon his death in 1932, his sons Giorgio and Constantino took command of the business and are credited with developing the distinctive Bulgari style, inspired by Greek and Roman classicism, the Italian Renaissance and the 19th century Roman school of goldsmiths.

Generation after generation, the Bulgari family has maintained the integrity of the classical Roman aesthetic, keeping within the design principles upon which the House was founded; characterized by elegant simplicity, Bulgari designs recall the grandeur of classical design. The 1970s marked the House’s international expansion and to this day, the most fashionable women around the globe count Bulgari as a favorite source of exquisite jewels. Today, the firm is overseen by Nicola and Paolo Bulgari, grandsons of Sotirios Bulgari.

They continue to oversee the production of jewelry that is both universal in scope, yet unique in aesthetic –true to the firm’s heritage.
