The demi-parure above is probably one of the finest examples of Bvlgari's exuberant use of coloured gemstones in extravagant designs which has set the House apart becoming its distinct trademark. It was made in 1968 and it is set with emerald beads and cabochon sapphires, rubies and emeralds in five large clusters. The light is brought in by a number of brilliant cut diamonds cleverly spread around the design.
