With an encyclopedic spirit and its characteristic flair for precious stones, Bvlgari reconstructs the aeternal history and fascination of Rome and the creative act in a dream in a new High Jewelry collection.

Every year Bvlgari launches a High Jewelry collection of 150 one-of-a-kind pieces. The new collection is named Aeterna and celebrates Bvlgari's ability to continuously reinvent itself, drawing inspiration from its heritage, embracing the contemporary, and envisioning the future. This pioneering spirit constantly forges new visions in the world of jewelry, continuously experimenting with materials, aesthetics, and craftsmanship.

The majesty and grandeur of the Eternal City have always served as a profound source of inspiration, and this time the radiant morning light of Rome lays the groundwork for capturing the spark of imagination. In that magical moment, the beauties of the city unveil themselves in a new perspective.

Crafted by nature over the course of millennia, Bvlgari's precious gems capture fragments of eternity, magnifying the richness of cultural diversity by combining elements, colors, materials, and shapes. Bvlgari's innovative and ever-evolving creativity reflects its commitment to venturing into uncharted territories. The experimentation never stops tracing new paths and pushing new boundaries of creation. The new one-of-a-kind High Jewelry collection pieces are presented in this book combined with the historical pieces of Bvlgari Heritage collection.
