Bulgari's new Diva collection lives up to its name, with geometric patterns inspired by Liz Taylor's make-up in 'Cleopatra' and plenty of colourful gemstones.

At a star-studded event during Paris Haute Couture week, Italy's most famous jeweller, Bulgari, unveiled a new Medium High Diva Collection of jewels alongside the spectacular one-of-a-kind creations it traditionally launches at this time of year. 

The Diva collection takes its name from the movie stars who wore Bulgari jewels during the glamorous 50s and 60s, including Ava Gardener, Elizabeth Taylor and, of course, Italy's most honoured actress, Sophia Loren. Inspired by Liz Taylor's make-up in the film 'Cleopatra', the jewels, including rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings in white and pink gold, are distinguished by gemoetric patterns and a combination of the rarest coloured gemsones - a Bulgari trademark.

A fan-like motif unites the collection, transformed into the petals of a flower or hung in elegant clusters that hint of the Orient. Beads of amethyst and rubellite nestle among pink gold and pavé diamonds like ripe berries, shot through with juicy green peridots. The different elements come together in fluid motion, giving each piece exceptional wearability - the perfect excuse to feel like a diva for the day.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
