One of the most glamorous and long running jewelry companies is Bulgari. The company was first founded in 1884 by Sotirio Bulgari. Bulgari, whose family had a long standing tradition of making precious jewelry, moved to in Rome, Italy. By 1905, a second store in Via Condotti was opened and is still open to this day and remains one of the company’s largest outlets.

Around the 1910s, Bulgari’s sons took an interest in creating watches and other such goods with jewelry, eventually taking over management from their father. Almost immediately after WWII, Costantino and Giorgio decided to move away from their French influences in order to try out new themes such as Greco-Roman, the Renaissance and 19th century Roman goldsmiths. By the 1950s, Bulgari was known worldwide for their work, particularly in the cinema scene.

With all this history behind them, it’s no surprise that the company plans on honoring the ‘Year of the Snake’ and the theme for this year’s Chinese New Year’ between February 9 and 28, Bulgari is showing off their famous reptile and serpentine based jewelry, at their Fifth Avenue flagship store.
