This necklace was photographed for the cover of a Bulgari brochure in 1989 and is pictured in Bvlgari, by Daniela Mascetti and Amanda Triossi, Abbevillle Press, 1996, page 192, Plate 212.

“The materials used by Bulgari are the result of a careful selection. Gemstones are chosen for their inherent beauty...and they are always perfectly matched. It is not easy to find a range of gemstones that are homogeneous in colour, clarity, shape and size...,” Mascetti and Triossi in Bvlgari, page 194. Circa 1988.

Signed, “Bvlgari”, “1988”, with maker's mark.
