de Young: The Art of Bulgari

There is nothing like a little sparkle to brighten every woman’s day, so Paul and I took in the Bulgari exhibit at the deYoung Museum last weekend.  I tend to be more conservative in my jewellery wear than the baubles of Bulgari, be it by financial limitations or not.  Bulgari is known for their use of gold, brightly coloured stones and unusual designs which as eye-poppingly beautiful as they are to admire I’ll take ‘plain-old’ diamonds any day … and lots of them!  Diamonds go with everything daah-ling and everything goes with diamonds.  My favourite piece in the exhibit is the Art Deco Sautoir of diamonds and sapphires in platinum previously owned by Elizabeth Taylor.
