Bulgari Ancient Coin “Monete” Necklace
This idea for this ancient coin necklace, belonging to Bulgari’s “Monete" collection, was conceived during the 1960s decade of “La Dolce Vita," when Rome was reborn as a film and style leader of the world. Casually elegant, this striking ancient coin pendant, with ruby accents and a supple gold trace link chain, perfectly expresses the Italian notion of “sprezzatura," or the art of being stylish without apparent effort.
