Bulgari’s jewelry serpents take many forms. In today’s featured ring, the highly stylized serpent is reminscent of Bulgari’s first stylized serpents from the late 1940s. This bracelet watch below is a case in point – there’s just the merest suggestion of the coils of a snake, in the spiralled tubogas watch band.

In our 2013 ring however, though more stylized than many of Bulgari’s later creations, we don’t have to be in the know to realise this is a ring which may hiss-s-s if we don’t treat it with the respect due to a diamond serpent!
The serpent ring is from the ”sold” archives of Bijouterie Jean-Marc BOTAZZI details and images below
