BVLGARI Diva @ The Strength of The Symbol


Round, opulent and sensual, simple yet sophisticated, resolutely Bulgari: the latest expression of the Diva radiates pure elegance and rewrites the collection’s key characteristics by imprinting them with its own personality. The slender case of the new interpretation features an acetate dial displaying a unique texture in each iteration. Three references introduced in autumn 2015 reaffirm the strength of the symbol. 30 mm 18-kt pink gold case set with 78 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0,94 ct); 18-kt pink gold crown set with a cabochon-cut rubellite. Cellulose acetate dial made from natural cotton and wood fibers and set with 12 diamond indexes (~0,13 ct) for the grey and champagne satin strap versions set with 18-kt pink gold ardillon buckle. Diamond-pavé dial set with 233 brilliant-cut diamonds (~0,95 ct) for the black satin strap version with 18-kt pink gold ardillon buckle. Quartz movement, Bulgari customized and adorned with Bulgari logo (B046). Water-resistant to 30 m. Bulgari and Rome have been inseparable for over a hundred and thirty years. The elegance and supremacy of Rome has always been an inexhaustible source of inspiration for the Maison. The Diva design, inspired by the Caracalla thermal baths’ mosaic floors on one hand and epitomizing the most glorious period of Rome in the near past - the Dolce Vita, now adopts a softer yet creative approach and evolves into a simpler yet sophisticated version. The iconic theme of the fan is evolving with the new Diva. After composing an arc of multi-coloured gems nestling together like petals and creating a corolla of stones dancing around the dial, the three new Diva models adopt a calmer yet equally creative approach. The emblematic Diva motif, the finely gem set fan now serves as the strap lug and serves to connect the dainty circular case in 18K pink or white gold to the satin strap symbolising the ties binding the Divas of today to those of the future.
