Easy Elegance

A chic collection from a brand known for its glamour and excellence.

The BVLGARI BVLGARI collection, also known as the BB collection, from Bvlgari is such a delight. The pieces are playful yet elegant, and can be worn alone or in combination with other pieces. The ultra-chic pieces are meant for easy elegance with a note of distinction. The pieces embody the Bvlgari tradition of excellence and effortless style.

These intricate and playful pieces of jewellery combine different kinds of metal with different precious and semi-precious stones. You can choose from classic yellow gold, white gold, which is an alloy of gold and a white metal (like nickel, silver, or palladium), or rose gold, also a gold alloy but this time paired with copper and silver.

In terms of stones, you can have your pick from delightful diamonds (always a girl’s best friend), cheerful malachite, delicate mother-of-pearl, or bright coral. Diamonds need no introduction, and the brilliant-cut diamonds used in this collection are indeed sparkly and dazzling. Malachite is a green copper carbonate mineral with a unique striped pattern. The deep and mid green stripes do not fade over time or when exposed to light, so your pieces will be vibrant today and years from now. Mother-of-pearl, or nacre, is luxurious and iridescent, and pairs well with the strong shine of the metals. There is another product of the sea here too, as the collection also uses coral in some pieces. Coral is actually an invertebrate sea animal and what we typically think of as a single piece of coral is actually a colony of hundreds or thousands of these little polyps.

The BVLGARI BVLGARI collection is named because, and it shouldn’t surprise you, several pieces feature the name BVLGARI on them. The earrings, in either white gold or rose gold, feature a circle of diamonds with a central chunky plate with BVLGARI on it. The rose gold earrings seem more appealing, perhaps because the diamonds are enhanced by the color of the metal. The statement rings have the same design, and this time I prefer the white gold version. It just looks so clean and pristine. And that BVLGARI name right there is definitely eye-catching.

The bracelets and pendants share a similar design – each iconic round motif has a wonderful diamond in it too. The rose gold bracelet with mother-of-pearl is delicious but the bright coral version is just as wonderful. The winner here though is the malachite version. The vibrant green stripes go perfectly with the rose gold metal.

Whichever pieces of jewellery you choose from the BVLGARI BVLGARI collection, you will be happy. You can mix and match the different metal-stone pairings to create your individual look, and change it up every day. This collection is definitely twice the fun.
