Recently, the exhibition ‘BVLGARI Bulgari’s Art-Sweet Life and After 1950-1990’ has been grandly opened at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. The exhibition features about 150 pieces of jewellery created by the famous Italian jeweller BVLGARI in the 1950s and 1990s, including several private collections by Elizabeth Taylor.
Some of the precious exhibits are loaned by local collectors, and this is the first time they have been exhibited publicly. In addition, the exhibition also shows the cultural background of these jewellery works through sketch manuscripts, photos and other archival materials. It reflects the fascinating stories between celebrities, design and top craftsmanship, and is brought to the visitors through high-end interactive technology. A unique visiting experience.
