💡Luxury Tidbit 💡

Did you know? Bvlgari has a Necklace with “Coins”? 🪙

The history of the Bvlgari “Monete” necklace is a tale of timeless elegance and historical reverence that has captivated jewelry enthusiasts for decades.

The Monete collection was conceived by Nicola Bvlgari in 1966, introducing a range of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings adorned with antique coins from ancient Greece and Rome.

The creation of the Bvlgari Monete necklace was inspired by a rich history of setting ancient coins in jewelry, a tradition that dates back to the Roman Empire and experienced a resurgence in popularity in the late 19th century. It was crafted under the discerning eye of Nicola Bvlgari, who had a profound appreciation for coins and their historical significance. 

The name "Monete" in the context of the Bvlgari Monete necklace collection originates from the Italian word for "coins." This name is intricately linked to the design of the necklace, as the central theme of this collection revolves around incorporating ancient coins into jewelry pieces. 

The choice of featuring these coins prominently in the necklace infuses each piece with a rich historical narrative and a touch of prestige.

This interpretation of Bvlgari brought a fresh perspective to luxury jewelry. The Monete necklace collection quickly became an iconic symbol of Bvlgari's commitment to heritage and craftsmanship, standing out as one of the brand's most enduring and popular lines.

Over time, the Bvlgari Monete necklace has evolved while maintaining its timeless elegance and historical reverence. Initially featuring antique Roman bronze coins set in 18k yellow gold mountings, the necklace has continued to captivate jewelry enthusiasts with its classic yet contemporary appeal.

Today, the Monete necklace has become a symbol of cultural currency, blending classical elegance with contemporary sophistication to create a truly unique and iconic piece that transcends time and trends.

Canary was shocked just like this when she found out!

But she will be back Next Friday knowing much more!

Until then,
Stay Luxe you all!
