Bulgari shows off elegant jewelry from its archives

Only a few women are lucky enough to own a necklace worth 20 billion won ($17 million). And although most Seoulites may not get to own such expensive jewelry they can see it at a special exhibition organized by luxury house Bulgari.

The jewelry maker is showing some 60 pieces out of its Italian archive in celebration of its 125th anniversary at the Shilla Hotel in central Seoul. The capital is Bulgari’s first destination in Asia for the exhibit, called “Between History and Eternity: 1884-2009,” which debuted last year at Palazzo delle Esposizioni, a neoclassical exhibition hall in Rome.

This necklace and pendant earring set made of emeralds, diamonds, turquoise and amethyst once belonged to Lyn Revson, wife of Revlon founder Charles Revson. Provided by Bulgari Korea
The collection includes an emerald platinum necklace worth 20 billion won that consists of seven cushion-shaped emeralds weighing a combined 118.46 carats and 224 smaller diamonds. Many of the necklaces, earrings, necklaces and watches on display are the only pieces of their kind in the world. Some of the pieces were once owned by rich and famous personalities, others were loaned to Hollywood celebrities for red carpet events.

The exhibition will run through June 15, from 9 a.m. through 9 p.m. every day.
