Dan Deutsch has been describing eyewear as “jewelry to the face” for as long as we can remember. The latest collection from Bulgari, Le Gemme, is simply that: eyewear forged from precious metals and gems.
Primavera, the ladies’ line, is characterized by five-point floral gemstone settings on the temples as well as metal browline accents. The floral gemstone settings range from combinations of agate+amethyst; to hematite, mother of pearl and amythyst+citrine; to brilliant multi-colored saphire ($12,000). For the discerning woman, Bulgari will customize the settings with her choice of Bulgari stones to create a one-of-a-kind piece valued at upwards of $80,000.
Zephyr, the Le Gemme line for men, is elegant: classic and squared aviator sunglasses with double bridges in titantium and both white and yellow 18KT gold. The masculine optical shape comes in both three-piece mount and full rim styles.
