Bulgari has a longstanding reputation for richly colored jewels that recall its Italian heritage, as well as for incredibly sexy watches, such as the sinuous Serpenti. But never have the two hallmarks come together quite like they do in the new Gemma timepiece. The limited-edition bracelet watch features 559 brilliant-cut diamonds and 76 amethysts, tourmalines, rubellites and mandarin garnets, in addition to 41 black mother-of-pearl stones that were molded by hand to create the frame. The face alone showcases 116 brilliant-cut diamonds. Each Gemma required more than 2,000 hours to construct at the house’s workshop in Rome. Clearly, some things are worth the wait.
