Bulgari's four resplendent Magnifica high jewelry secret watches are laced with fantastic rubies, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds coming in myriad cuts, shapes and setting designs. These Magnifica watches are all unique possessing quartz movements. The highly respected creative core team at Bulgari’s high jewelry atelier in Italy designed these exquisite luxury watches under the watchful eyes of product creation executive director Fabrizio Buonamassa.
Magnifica Ruby Metamorphosis
This awesome luxury watch absorbed around 1,650 hours to create and it is a secret watch set in platinum having a cover accentuated by a 6.3-carat, antique cushion-cut Mozambique ruby. An amazing group of 48 baguette-cut rubies (7.32 carats), 146 baguette-cut diamonds (19.78 carats), three brilliant-cut diamonds (1.32 carats) and pavé-set diamonds (4.80 carats) beautify this watch. The dial is covered solidly and the intricate bracelet elements are linked smartly to create a fitting of a flexible bracelet.
The Magnifica Celestial Sky is a cuff style bracelet watch with an offset dial surrounded by gems arranged in curvy swaths of varying shapes, in the baroque style of Roman architecture. Set in platinum, the showpiece gem on the cover is a 6.07-carat oval sapphire in a vibrant shade of blue that recalls the hue of the Roman sky. It is covers a pavé dial, and includes 103 buff-top sapphires (11.44 carats), 10 tourmaline beads (27.90 carats) and 779 round brilliant-cut diamonds (0.90 carats).
The one outlier to the burst of color motif is the art-deco-style platinum-set Diamond Swan on an articulated bracelet intricately woven in a tapered formation of links shaped like a swan’s wing. Each is set with diamonds juxtaposed with mother-of-pearl inserts. The links appear to be floating in mid-air thanks to a special construction developed by Bulgari. It is set with six round brilliant diamonds (6.14 carats), 12 mother-of-pearl inserts (13.56 carats) and pavé-set diamonds (23.31 carats). It was inspired by a Bulgari necklace of the same name that took its design cues from Art Deco artist Tamara de Lempicka.
The pavé dial of the Magnifica Baroque spiral is hidden under a cover of faceted rock crystal, surrounded by an open worked arrangement of gems set in 18-karat rose gold, including 10 cabochon-cut rubies (2.32 carats), 8 cabochon-cut sapphires (2.81 carats), 8 cabochon-cut emeralds (2.41 carats) and pavé-set diamonds (1384 carats). It was inspired by a matching high jewelry necklace, which in turn was inspired by the Baroque period artist Artemisia Gentileschi.
The Magnifica collection should be present in all its glory across high jewelry events in Bulgari boutiques across the globe in the summer of 2021. Bulgari will also ship these high end luxury pieces to interested customers for them to see it in private. Rates and prices would be available on request.
