While other brands are staging avant garde resort shows complete with Louis Vuitton claw machine games and ultra-moody wizard-worthy robes, Bulgari went seriously classic with the release of their latest jewelry collection. The nature-inspired Bulgari "Italian Gardens" collection, was unveiled in... guess where? Well, fittingly, an Italian garden. Yep, Bulgari's new jewelry took center stage at the Villa de Maiano in Florence, an historical villa that dates all the way back to the 16th century. It's famous for its geometrical gardens and the striking resemblance it bears to the Villa Auditore from Assassin's Creed II.
Seriously though, rack your brains: Can you think of anything more luxuriously decadent than Bulgari Collection jewels at a garden party in 16th century villa in Florence, Italy? I don't think so. This is a party that we all wish we could have gone to (and gotten party favors for, of course). While most of us didn't get an invitation to fly first-class to Italy, there's always Instagram for us to scroll through to admire the event from afar.
So, without further ado, let's take a look at some of the most ritzy jewelry pieces of the day. Prepare to feel some serious bling envy.
These showstopping gems
Ooh, regal and blingy, right?
Ralph & Russo Couture should always be worn with bling of this magnitude.
This matching set
Ooh, don't these earrings and necklace look like they belong in a display case in a museum somewhere?
This floral jewelry
That's some queen of the fairies level accessorizing there.
