Strong, graphic, yet with a feminine voluptuousness, these earrings illustrate the Bulgari aesthetic of exquisitely balanced volumes and unmistakable motifs that encapsulate the Italian school of jewelry design they created. With one subtle design detail, the earrings pay homage to the vibrant spirit of Rome where the jewelry house was established in 1884. These Bulgari Vintage Pearl Ruby Diamond Button Earrings, made in Italy in the 21st century, circa 2000s, are crafted in 18K yellow gold and feature two round white cultured pearls at the center of stunning sculptural pear shapes embellished with modernist halos of pavé diamonds. The round brilliant-cut diamonds weigh an estimated total of 2.50 carats of G color and VS clarity. The pear shape earrings are topped with cabochon red rubies and accented with instantly recognizable geometric motifs of the Parentesi collection, rendered in highly polished gold. The earrings are Signed Bvlgari with Italian assay marks for 18 karat gold and stamped with a serial number that will be provided to potential buyers.

Bulgari’s now iconic Parentesi collection originated in the late 1970s and launched in 1982, just as the Italian luxury house was introducing angular forms, vibrant colors, oval elements with cabochons from 17th-century Indian tradition, gold settings with diamonds, and rounded flattened links. The signature sculpted geometric links of the Parentesi collection borrowed a detail directly from the streets of Rome: the travertine junctions of the Roman pavements. This unmistakable motif became a trademark for Bulgari, reflecting the infinite spirit of the Eternal City. Here Bulgari brought the ancient detail into modern times, using its shape as the foundation for Bulgari’s first-ever modular pieces.

The elegant round white pearls are classically feminine and refined, set in halos of delicate sparkle. The exceptionally lustrous and round shape of the natural pearls give these earrings that recognizable Bulgari look that would crystalize in the 1980s of a volume surrounded by warm, sunny yellow gold with clean lines and stylized motifs. The cabochon is a favorite for the House that loves to showcase color with bravado and passion. Since the appeal of ruby is color, the cabochon is an ideal cut as it shows very high color purity. The cabochon ruby is one of the oldest and most coveted gemstones used since ancient times, used in the crowns and jewelry of kings and noblemen since they were first discovered. Rubies such as these with a beautiful, saturated color are the crowning glory for these beautiful earrings.

Each earring measures approx. 0.6” x 0.8” (15.24 x 20.32 mm), hinged omega backs with comfort cushions. Pearl center with ruby on top set with approx. 2.50 carats of diamonds; estimated G color, VS clarity. Overall weight approx. 21.26 grams, made in 18k yellow gold. Signed Bvlgari and stamped with serial number; circa 2000s.
