In the world of Bulgari, everything links back to its Roman origins, the storied Italian jeweller that was first established in 1884 in, you guessed it, Rome. And as an ode to both its beginnings and to celebrate Christmas, they have launched a microsite called Roman Treasures.
Inviting one to step in to explore Rome’s most iconic of landmarks, it’s also a mini tutorial of sorts, one that shows the inspiration behind some of Bulgari’s most treasured jewellery pieces, like the Colosseum and the B.zero1 (ok, that’s an easy one), to the Spanish Steps and the Serpenti which also had me stumped in the beginning. Listening to the audio guide quickly cleared that up, and you can continue the journey, from the Baths of Caracalla to Piazza Navona.
And once you are done with the beautifully rendered virtual tour, you can even send out your own Christmas wishes with the help of Roman Treasures to your loved ones, and perhaps (this is just a thought, by the way), hint to your special one about what exactly you’ll want for yourself this X’mas. Killing two birds with one stone, or in the case of this special microsite, with stones that have been around for thousands of years.
