Be mesmerized and tempted with pieces of high jewellery, crafted with passion and sophistication, signifying wisdom, life and eternity.
Bedazzling, bewitching and beguiling. Bulgari, the ultra-glam Italian jewelry house, recently launched its Serpenti collection in Manila. In one evening, Makati Shangri-la's Red was transformed into the Bulgari Lounge, serving wines and champagnes as soon as one enters the venue. The dimly lit room exuded utmost class while guests awaited the unveiling of the collection.
Balladeer Bo Cerruda opened the program with an array of classical songs. Models in white long dresses slowly appeared behind the glass walls as live mannequins that gave a full view of the exquisite pieces. The snake like figure of the Serpenti collection symbolizes immortality and has been one of the more prominent and famed creations of Bulgari.

For Bulgari, the Serpenti collection is a milestone of Bulgari style: the powerful expressivity of an ancient symbol that speaks of a contemporary language, in a perfect synthesis of sinuosity and geometric abstraction.
