Legendary Bvlgari Time

aWhen it comes to premier  master jewelers, the brands Tiffany, Harry Winston, Cartier and Bvlgari easily come to mind. Each holds a rich legacy and expertise in the art of  fine jewelry-making and is an institution itself  in the highly-regarded industry.

Bvlgari is unquestionably the leading Italian jeweler in the world today. The brand was  founded by Sotirio Voulgaris, a Greek jeweler who moved to Italy in 1880 and opened his first shop in 1884. Vougaris name was phonetically changed to Bvlgari when he arrived in Italy.

Bvlgari, who was of Bulgarian descent,  came from a long line of jewelry-makers who worked in Greece from the 15th to 18th Centuries.  Elements of  ancient Greek and Roman influence along with Italian Renaissance inspiration were incorporated in Bvlgari’s designs.BVLGARI-TI44BTAVTDCH-SD

These same elements  were utilized by his sons Constanio and Girogio, who took over the family business in the early 1900’s and introduced Art Deco aspects, as well as multi-colored gemstones in their collections.

The brand expanded into international territories during the 1970’s and now has 300 boutiques worldwide.  In the early 1980’s the brand founded the Bvlgari Haute Horlogerie in Neuchatel Switzerland to produce premium crafted Swiss watches with all movements, calibers, mechanisms and parts produced at the facility.

The classic Greek and Roman elements Bvlgari is noted for were incorporated in their early watch designs and are still present in their most recent collections today. You’ll find a wide array of Bvlgari timepieces for men and women at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com, including popular styles from the  Diagano, Tubogas, Ergon and Assioma collections.
