Aeterna captures the essence of the Eternal City in a unique and breathtaking collection adorned with magnificent gems. This diverse array of masterpieces embodies the eclectic creativity and aesthetic codes of the Roman High Jeweller. The ‘Ode to Eternity’ necklace, the pièce de résistance of the collection, boasts seven D flawless diamond drops totaling an impressive 140 carats—one for each year of Bulgari’s history. Cut from the same rough stone, these diamonds are juxtaposed with a diamond-set Serpenti, creating an intriguing and unmatched allure.

The Bulgari Lotus Cabochon necklace compensates for the lack of color in the ‘Ode to Eternity’ with a vibrant array of gems, featuring Bvlgari’s signature smooth cabochon cut. The Aeterna high-jewelry watches forsake the Serpenti motif for exuberant, larger-than-life designs, bursting with colors and an assortment of precious and colored gemstones. The metals range from pink and white gold to titanium and platinum, housing the Piccolissimo mechanical micro round movement.

This secret watch reveals an exceptionally rare 9.78-carat Paraiba tourmaline at its center, concealing the watch dial. Each gemstone is carefully selected and set by hand, a testament to Bulgari’s unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
