Bulgari Necklaces & Pendants

The Bulgari brand traces its origins to the Greek Peloponnesus, where Sotirios Voulgaris, also spelled Bulgaris, first opened a store in the late 19th century. By the early 1880s, Bulgaris has moved to Rome, Italy, which was where, three years later, the “Bulgari” company would emerge.

Since the brand's establishment, Bulgari jewels have become the beacon of the best and most breathtaking craftsmanship in the world. Blending bits of the Greco-Roman world with the refinement of the Renaissance, Bulgari’s concepts charted a new course for jewelry in the mid-20th century.

So renowned were Bulgari’s jewels that they became synonymous with the “Italian School” of design. While quoting elements of generations past, Bulgari also strived to infuse his jewels with a nod to the future. Resulting were collections that were tastefully timeless, a tradition that has continued to their designs today.
