Bulgari has been named the new recipient of the Fine Art of High Jewelry and Timepieces Award, bestowed by The National Jewelry Institute and Parsons School of Design.
The award was presented to the Italian jewellery and luxury good brand in an awards ceremony hosted by HRH Princess Tatiana of Greece and HRH Prince Nikolaos of Denmark at the Musée du Louvre.
The Blue Iridescence necklace from Bulgari’s newly launched Giardini Italiani High Jewellery collection and the Octo-Retrograde Mono watch were the two pieces that clinched the title for the brand, celebrated for their design, creativity and innovation.

The decision was drawn following deliberate and extended judging from a prominent jury of experts, among them, Joel Towers (Dean of Parsons School of Design), Judith Price (founder of the National Jewelry Institute), Aymeric Zublana (president of the Academie des Beaux Arts & Institute du France), Vincent Meylan (noted author and historian), Ben Clymer (founder of Hodinkee), and Catherine Pegard (president of Public Establishment of the Palace, Museum and National Estate of Versailles).
Bulgari, known for its usage of vibrant multi-coloured gemstones blending a dazzling array of sights and sensations, has always upheld a strong legacy of craftsmanship in turning jewellery and timepieces into unique pieces of art.
The award itself is an initiative born of the partnership between the National Jewelry Institute and the Parsons School of Design that aims to promote high jewellery and timepieces as decorative arts.
