For international haute jewellery brands, the month of July has been a bright and colourful one as they unveiled their latest collections that abound with some of the most intense and majestic gems.
With different design inspirations and approaches, each collection is dramatic, striking and irresistible in their own way.
Bulgari’s Barocko High Jewellery Collection
The Italian luxury brand has always been lavish in its usage of bold, sizable gemstones.  Their pieces are chromatic explosions, to say the least, but yet the deft designs bring form, function and aesthetics together in harmony.
Their latest collection captures the grandeur of Rome, the brand’s home city while taking inspiration from Baroque art and architecture. The collection exudes the drama and exuberance of the erstwhile era, while employing pink and blue sapphires, emeralds, Paraiba tourmalines, citrines, peridots, rubellite, amethysts and aquamarines in striking combinations.
