This graphic Bulgari Sapphire Diamond Bracelet, created in Italy during the 1980s, exquisitely marries the charm of Rome's distinctive pavements with a unique boldness that defines Bulgari's signature style. Crafted in platinum adorned with diamonds and sapphires, this articulated bracelet boasts the sleek luxury of Art Deco design while bearing a unique voluptuousness. The bracelet showcases nine graduated cushion-shaped sapphires, totaling approximately 42.00 carats, delicately secured by talon-shaped prongs along a tapered band, creating a gradual crescendo of stunning blue gemstones. These sapphires, of Sri Lankan origin, have undergone a typical treatment process to enhance their color and clarity, as confirmed by a report from the GemResearch Swisslab (GRS).

The bracelet comprises 23 articulated links and a mesmerizing interplay of baguette, square, and custom-shaped step-cut diamonds, forming intricate geometric patterns around the sapphires. The diamonds, estimated at around 17.00 carats with F-H color and VS clarity, add a radiant touch. The sapphire links are tastefully adorned with bezel-set rectangular baguette diamonds on the top and bottom, alternating with all-diamond links. These all-diamond links feature a central rectangular bezel-set baguette diamond, enhanced by half-octagon channel-set diamonds on the top and bottom, showcasing their unique step-cut shapes. Diamond octagons at the clasp's edges replace sapphires, becoming the bracelet's focal point at the back.

Measuring approximately 6.7 inches (17 cm) in length, this bracelet features a discreetly hidden push clasp that preserves the angular intricacy of the bold geometric pattern. Founded in 1884 in Rome, Bulgari is renowned for its distinctive use of sunny shades of yellow gold and vibrantly colored gemstones in curvaceous designs. This bracelet harkens back to their early high jewelry creations from the 1920s, influenced by traditional French techniques that incorporated platinum, diamonds, and Art Deco design. In the 1940s, Bulgari's authentic Italian style began to take shape, visible even in their all-diamond pieces. The bracelet bears French assay marks for platinum and has an approximate gross weight of 83.00 grams. It comes with the original Bulgari box.

This bracelet measures about 170mm long and boasts a total sapphire weight of around 42.00 carats in vivid blue, reminiscent of the GRS-type royal blue. The estimated diamond weight is 17.00 carats, featuring F-H color and VS clarity, as assessed within the mount. While showing some age-related scratches, the bracelet remains in good condition, signifying an actual work of art. It is crafted in platinum and bears the Bulgari signature alongside French assay marks, stamped PT950, dating back to the 1980s.
