BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

Marina B’s jewels are unique, daring and timeless, much like the designer herself. The brand’s exclusive works of art add dazzling value to your jewellery collection.

Marina Bulgari is widely regarded as one of the most prominent women of our time in the world of classic and high-end jewellery. In 1976, the adventurous and ambitious lady left her family’s famed maison, Bulgari, to launch her own line, Marina B. She quickly gained popularity and carved an identity for herself with her daring and timeless designs.

Marina invented her own gemstone cuts in addition to reinventing many others. In 1978, she successfully opened her first showroom in Geneva, which led to boutiques in Milan, Paris and New York and a worldwide clientele. Marina B’s modern vision and creative excellence inspired a first generation of women purchasing jewels for themselves. Presently, Italian-born French designer, Guy Bedarida leads the brand’s creative side, crafting beautiful collections that continue to embrace Marina’s innovative aesthetic.

Some of Marina B’s most iconic pieces include the Onda collar and Salvia cuff. Onda means ‘wave’ in Italian, and the pavé diamond motifs in the collection are decorated with strands of gold, resembling waves rolling through the pavé. The chunky Salvia cuff is made up of 21.8 carats of a cushion of natural Muzo emerald alongside buff-top (a type of gemstone cut) emeralds. The Simona collars and bangles and Maline collar and ring are other striking jewels.

The La Casa Collection

A new line of décor and lifestyle pieces, the La Casa – ‘home’ in Italian – capsule was previously available by special order only for exclusive clients. Now, the maison is showcasing a permanent collection, featuring candle holders, letter opener and magnifier sets, and boxes. The pieces are crafted using crystal, Muzo emeralds and luxury materials such as vermeil (silver gilded with gold), sterling silver and pietra dura – an inlay technique with highly polished coloured stones that flourished in Florence in the 16th and 17th centuries. Guy draws on the heritage of Marina Bulgari, who first introduced her La Casa collection in the 1980s, combining it with his love for the Florentine Renaissance, for this capsule.

These exquisite pieces and many more were showcased at Fifty One East’s pavilion during the latest edition of the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition.
