Bulgari’s MVSA collection honours the muses of ancient Greece, nine mythological sisters who ruled over the Arts, Poetry and Music.

In a harmonic hymn to the gemstones, Bulgari plays on the beauty of the arts to create a bold ensemble of 26 pieces literally singing with colours in distinctive forms, thus bringing the Muses back to life through its own artistic inventions.

The dramatic takhti cut, reinterpreted by Bulgari (the first contemporary jeweller to use it), holds all the magic and the splendour of an ancient culture, the fil rouge characterising the entire line.

Bulgari Musa1
Rhyme: With multiple talents, this necklace of cabochon stones is unusual in that each stone could have been featured at the centre of a necklace. As in the joyful verses of a poem, it successively features a 128.65 ct peridot, an 80.53 ct amethyst, an 82.30 ct blue topaz, a 94.67 ct purplish pink and a 78.36 ct citrine.
Viola: The 16 amethysts (504.54 ct) of the Viola necklace create a spectacular piece, unique in the shape of its patiently collected gems. These opulent gems were not re-cut, but merely polished.

ira: Persia attended the banquet of Lira, whose spectacular 86.11-carat emerald, originally from Zambia, belonged to an ancient parure. Cut in two to obtain this takhti cut, it is the muse of this platinum necklace containing 58 emeralds (2.19 ct), 50 polished rubies (2.73 ct), and a magnificent 91 round spinels (122.53 ct) – whose cerise colour is the rarest in the mineral world.

Armonia: With its Columbian sublime emerald cabochon (28.21 ct), 54 round emeralds (86.50 ct) and 45 round rubies (49.99 ct) on white gold and diamonds, the Armonia necklace make a clever concerto of shapes and polyhedral lines, harmonizing gems of different shapes, colours and carats.

Odissi: The original layout of these stones began in Jaipur, with the discovery of a sublime emerald originally from Zambia – now at the centre of the necklace. Nineteen others were needed, sourced from throughout the world, and re-cut to obtain this regal piece: featuring 9 pear emeralds (80.20 ct), 13 other pear-cut emeralds in the second row (16.83 ct), 37 round cabochon spinels, 26 turquoises, while 9 brilliant-cut diamonds and pavé-diamonds (8.88 ct) dance on yellow gold.

Mediterranean Hues: This seascape necklace, with its bold trio of colours that embody light and transparency, epitomises quintessential Bulgari qualities. Emerald pebbles (68.10 ct), amethysts (64.56 ct) and tourmalines (60.73 ct), famed since antiquity for inspiring poets, combine in a striking chromatic combination.

Each multifaceted masterpiece vaunts a multitude of gem cuts that lend a refractory beauty to the whole while at the same time accentuating its harmoniously proportioned volumes.
