“Gong Hei Fat Choy” in Cantonese, “Gong Xi Fa Cai” in Mandarin, or “Happy Chinese New Year” in English – all these greetings are meant to bring blessings and good fortune to all. The Lunar New Year in 2021 brings us the Year of the Ox. Bvlgari has brought us so many oh-so-delightful pieces to choose from to start our year wonderfully.
Bvlgari has a vast collection of pieces to choose from when they create a capsule or curated collection. That is the beauty of being Bvlgari, isn’t it? And because red is an auspicious color associated with the Lunar New Year, we can count on these pieces to be eye-catching and captivating – from jewellery to watches, bags to accessories. Bring on the Bvlgari pieces to beckon good luck and good fortune.
Pick some jewellery
For the ladies, let us start with gazing at the B.zero1 Rock pendant, a piece that is exclusive to China. The studded spiral is a nod to Bvlgari’s home city of Rome and the impressive Colosseum. The rose gold piece has delicious rubies on the edges, and the combination is sure to bring good fortune for the whole year. There are two other pieces worthy of adding to your jewellery box – the B.zero1 Rock ring in yellow gold set with diamonds and the B.zero1 Rock rose gold ring with black ceramic. Any of these items are sure to bring luck to the lady who receives them, and great appreciation for the one that gifted them to her.
No Bvlgari collection is complete without their famed Serpenti design making an appearance. The Serpenti Seduttori bangle in rose gold brings a tinge of pink to your wrist, and the rubellite eyes and snakehead with diamonds bring additional glamour. For even more decadence, add the Serpenti Viper rose gold pendant with diamond pavé detail to your outfit for the day.
Choose a timepiece
Bvlgari has some amazing watches to choose from but the LVCEA Intarsio Marquetry watch really takes the cake. The marquetry work on its own is impressive, but when you add mother-of-pearl in a three dimensional mosaic dial, it takes it to the next level. For the more classic look, pick the stainless steel case; but for an extra dash of style, choose the case encrusted with diamonds. Both versions have a green alligator bracelet.
The Bvlgari LVCEA watch is a nice option too, with a dainty mother-of-pearl dial and a bordeaux alligator strap. And if you prefer a little more technical power in your timepiece, choose the LVCEA Skeleton watch. This watch uses the letters of the logo central to the design. It is powered by an automatic winding BVL 191 skeleton movement, crafted in-house in Switzerland. The LVCEA Skeleton watch has diamonds and a red alligator bracelet.
Sometimes artisans create a piece so beautiful and technically impressive, you aren’t sure if you should consider it a watch or a piece of jewellery. Such is the case with the Serpenti Seduttori. It is a timepiece, for sure, but the elegant styling means it is also a dazzling piece of jewellery. The piece is so alluring, they made three different versions of it – in stainless steel with diamonds on the case, in rose gold completely encrusted with diamonds, and in rose gold and steel with diamonds on the case.
And for the more daring among us
The cult favorite Bvlgari Aluminium Chronograph is a combination of luxury and sport, and suits those with a strong heart and style – both the men and ladies. The pairing of black rubber and aluminium is a bold choice, and the watch equipped with a mechanical movement with automatic winding, chronograph, and date. It’s the perfect choice for versatility and adventure.
The Octo Finissimo in satin-polished steel with blue dial is another luxury sports watch, and sure to add to your celebratory look. The Octo Finissimo Automatic in sandblasted rose gold has that discreet touch of rose color to honor the Lunar New Year.
For the young and young at heart
The Serpenti is such an iconic design that it deserves interpretation in more than one offering. The red-themed Serpenti Forever bags and accessories capsule collection is well suited for the Lunar New Year, and indeed, for the entire year ahead. Bvlgari chose two specific hues for this capsule collection, taken from beautiful gemstones: red Amaranth Garnet and purple Magenta Spinel.
The multi-pocket Serpenti Forever is an urban ideal of pearled calf leather and a jewellery-chain strap, made complete with the snakehead closure en pendant. The Serpenti Forever Mini Crossbody is also in pearled calf leather but this time in a smaller glossy version, available in two colors. There are wallets, credit card holders, and a coiling Clepoatra bracelet to complete the choices.
Bvlgari has two special items for the Chinese New Year, the Serpenti Forever Chain Wallet and a Mini bag. Ultra-light chains, compact shapes, in the bright and exciting red make these perfect choices for your Lunar New year celebration.
Bring Good Luck and Good Fortune
As our days continue, we find ourselves yearning to celebrate milestones and events even more. Let’s be cautious and concerned for each other, but let’s also celebrate and make every precious moment count. Bvlgari makes it easy, with so many pieces to choose from. Here’s to a brighter Lunar New Year!
