Bulgari Serpenti

Taking the stark functionality of the Tubogas watch with the classical motif of the snake, the new Serpenti watches are cool and contemporary.

Bulgari's new interpretation of the Serpenti in rose gold

Bulgari's new Serpenti watch is a fushion between the traditional snake bracelet and  the 1950's 'Tubogas" bracelet, a Bulgari icon named for the mundane gas-pipe that inspired the design. Snake jewels have been slithering up arms since Roman times and later interpretations include models such as this beautifully elaborate 1965 version (above) with enamel scales and a miniature dial in its mouth. Taking the stark functionality of the 1950's Tubogas (above) with the classical motif of the snake, the new Serpenti bracelet watches are classic yet coolly contemporary. For all their exterior serenity and simplicity, the coil bracelet with no fastenings is a feat of micro-engineering that slips onto the wrist with reptilian ease. Available in single coil or double coil versions for those wanting a double dose of slinkiness.

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.
