In celebration of their 125 year anniversary, Bulgari will auction an extraordinary collection of 11 one-ofa-kind jewelry creations and 7 limited edition timepieces. The jewels’ overall value is estimated at around $4 million, and all proceeds 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.
