Rome’s baths of Caracalla – the ancient equivalent of a wellness centre that contained facilities for exercise and reading alongside a series of thermal baths – have stood since the third century and are one of the Italian capital’s most popular tourist attractions.
They’re also the source of inspiration for another of the city’s cultural heroes: the luxury house of Bvlgari, which drew from the graphic mosaic tiles that adorn the interior of the baths to create its signature Divas’ Dream line of fine jewellery.
Launched recently, the latest additions to the range continue to underscore the brand’s mastery of colour. Expect elegant, eye-catching combinations such as mother-of-pearl contrasted with rubies and a single diamond on a rose gold pendant.
There’s also an upsized take on the collection’s distinctive fan-shaped motif featuring diamonds paired with four different shades of either blue or pink sapphires.
Ahead, we go in for a close-up (something you should also do in person at the newly revamped Bvlgari boutique at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands).
To mark the opening of the store and to fete the holiday spirit, Bvlgari has also launched the More Than A Wish campaign in the mall.
From now to December 31, spot a complimentary sampan ride down the Bvlgari-branded Canal or take part in an interactive game around the mall and stand a chance to win a three-day-two-night stay at the Bvlgari Resort Bali in Uluwatu worth $2,250.
