The ‘chain’ of a century
The bracelet is one of the oldest pieces of jewellery, dating back to the Sumerian period. As early as 2500 AD, the Sumerians were able to incorporate gold into the interwoven flakes in a ‘interlocking’ process. In ancient Greece, this BVLGARI Bulgari’s deeply rooted land, a stylish chain necklace imitating Venus’s legendary belt-interspersed and woven with twigs of rose and myrtle, giving the goddess transcendence of all beings charm. In Rome, there are also gold medals or coin pendants on necklaces, and Byzantine gemstone gold necklaces are also popular.
During the time of Alexander the Great, the treasures of Thrace gold mines and Persian exquisite gold and silver workshops were looted, and necklaces became one of the main symbols of wealth and honor. In the Renaissance, necklaces served dual functions: decoration and objects of exchange for value. The value of each ring is equivalent to fiat money, so it can be used as a substitute for money. In a portrait of Henry VIII, he wore a necklace weighing 3 kilograms, inlaid with pearls and rubies. Like him, people are wearing a variety of intricately decorated gold necklaces, posing, and asking artists such as Cranach or Durer to portray them to show their high social status. The precious necklace has been regarded as a classic jewellery for centuries. Until the start of the French Revolution, due to the austerity of the aristocratic economy, the production of necklaces was strictly prohibited. After the Great Revolution, necklaces returned, and long pendants or chains with enamel medals began to prevail. Later, in the 18th and 19th centuries, elegant fur necklaces began to decorate people’s necks, and they were also used to connect pocket watches to clothes, again proving that wild necklaces have successfully combined aesthetic effects and practical functions. .
BVLGARI jewelry necklace
In the mid-1960s, Nicola Bulgari reinterpreted traditional jewellery necklaces, incorporating ancient coins, embossments and intaglios: at the same time incorporating Greek and Roman elements into the BVLGARI Bulgari style, immediately winning the appreciation of elegant people. The Gourmette necklace is composed of curved and smooth links. Its simple and perfect lines are derived from the oldest jewellery tradition.

Among the admirers of BVLGARI Bvlgari necklaces, Elizabeth Taylor is undoubtedly the most outstanding. Her collection of BVLGARI jewelry collection is incredible, including two Roman Empire pendant necklaces and gorgeous necklaces decorated with six Byzantine coins (which she wore during her engagement ceremony with John Warner ). The Gourmette copper and gold necklace dates back to the third century AD and is one of Andy Warhol’s favorite jewellery. He once said, ‘Entering BVLGARI on Condotti Avenue is like visiting the best contemporary art exhibition.’
Therefore, the necklace has become a member of BVLGARI Bulgari’s outstanding logo, expressing the very unique visual beauty carefully created by BVLGARI Bulgari.
In the 1970s, the style of the necklace was gradually changed to a Sautoir-style long necklace in response to the then flowing long skirt style, showing a very different gorgeous pendant inspired by Indian culture or pop art. This necklace can even be worn separately from accessories such as brooches. In many years of bold experiments, from onyx corals to mother-of-pearl and the purest diamonds, the selection of precious materials is not bound by eclecticism. The instant burst of inspiration gave the link a variety of forms: rectangular, oval or hexagonal. The links are rendered in warm gold tones or are completely covered with colored stones. In the groundbreaking breakthrough of the traditional jewelry trend (mainly platinum and platinum), the most commonly used material for necklaces is gold. Since the 1970s, BVLGARI has used gold in various jewelry, including gem-set Valuable jewelry items.

They are active in homes and shopping malls, and they are eager to have unique and beautiful clothing.
