In celebration of their 125 year anniversary, Bulgari will auction an extraordinary collection of 11 one-of-a-kind jewelry creations and 7 limited edition timepieces. The jewels’ overall value is estimated at around $4 million, and all proceed will be donated to Save the Children’s Rewrite the Future campaign, dedicated to providing quality education for 8 million children living in conflict-affected areas.
The collection was officially presented to the public on May 20, 2009 at a private celebration inaugurating Bulgari’s first-ever retrospective museum exhibition at the prestigious Il Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome. From June until November 2009 the collection will tour the world’s greatest cities, where they will be presented at a series of high-profile events. This international tour will culminate with the New York auction in December when these 18 exquisite creations will be sold at Christie’s – the world’s leading auction house.
