Bulgari Jewels and Dog Collars

An amazing Bulgari gemstone necklace.

On my way to Bergdorf and Cartier on Fifth Avenue back in July, I was stopped in my tracks outside Bulgari, also on Fifth Avenue, by this drop-dead gorgeous multicolored gemstone necklace set with baguette diamonds between each stone. I may have seen this beauty back in summer but I would love a necklace like this to wear any time of the year! I think it would be amazing in summer with a white dress or crisp white shirt, or in the winter over a black cashmere turtleneck. Can you imagine?

Detail of a Bulgari necklace. I think I just died of love.

Another amazing Bulgari necklace.

Another necklace featured paler cabochon gemstones and I found it just as stunning.


The next thing that caught my eye was this couple, standing just outside the store:

I love this shot of this couple and their dog!

I figured she worked at Bulgari and was on a break, her boyfriend/husband was visiting her, and he brought the dog, a beautiful Boxer! Then I noticed the dog wore a studded collar.

Dog collar by Bulgari?

I would love nothing more than to fasten a rhinestone collar around the neck of our cat, Tippi, whom I sometimes call Little Elizabeth Taylor when she is playing with her feather boa (Oh Liz, the glamour!), but Tippi is a bit edgy and I have a feeling she is Not That Kind of Cat and I would have my hands scratched off for my troubles.

Tippi in my Sylvia Steininger New York tote, which she thinks is hers.

I will have to add Bulgari to my list of window stops next time I’m in the city. Put it on your list too, it’s at 57th and Fifth Avenue, across from both Tiffany and Bergdorf.

Would you wear a multicolored gemstone necklace? Does your dog or cat have a bejeweled or studded collar?

Yes I would and I must say I prefer the cabochon one!

My mother's pup Dolly, a black cocker spaniel, true to her working dog roots dons a tartan collar. That necklace is quite something but rather an unimpressive way of displaying it I think. Obviously, Bulgari knows their customers better than I do.

Jill, Would I wear a colored stone necklace - of course I would. I will be in the City again next week & will take a look at Bulgari's window & ogle at the beautiful necklace.

I love that couple with the bejeweled boxer. She is all dressed up wearing really high heels & he is a cool hipster, hat and all. The guy looks right out of Brooklyn. How does the girl stand possibly all day in those heels. Oh, forgot - she's young.

Wonderful post

Thanks Rosie

:-) Both necklaces are beautiful, but I would prefer the Cabochon necklace for myself.
The picture of the couple with the dog is great. But if I had a dog or a cat I think I'd just let them go with a comfortable leash.
Have a very HAPPY week! xo :-)

Hi Naomi, you know, the more I look at the two necklaces, I think I'm with you, I'd prefer the cabochon one. It is gorgeous! XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi GSL, oh I bet Dolly is lovely in her tartan collar! You are right, these window displays are pretty spare, I nearly walked right by them. I think I had to stop to do something for my daughter and when I looked up I noticed what was in the windows! I'm going to start keeping my eye on Bulgari to see if they step up their game next time. I wonder if they have decided to play it more low-key since they are so close to Tiffany and Bergdorf, who don't play it low-key at all! Ha. XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Rosie! If you see anything fabulous at Bulgari, let me know. I took these pictures in late July so I'm curious what they have in the windows now!

And that couple is nice-looking, aren't they, especially with the addition of the dog! Almost makes me wonder if Bulgari paid them to stand outside the store. Although I think I may have been the only person to really notice them! XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Happyface, another vote for the cabochon! It really is a stunning necklace, isn't it? I would love a chance to try that baby on!

I have no collar at all on my cat and I don't think we will ever put one on her, she'd hate it I'm sure, even if it was sparkly! Ha. XO, Jill

Jill, passed the Bulgari windows today,and there were a lot of BIG diamond statement necklaces - the kind you would have seen on Elizabeth Taylor; or on the red carpet. There was a diamond & sapphire necklace that was very old Hollywood. Each stone was the same size very large & round; and, alternated between sapphire & diamond - very old Hollywood that stood out.


Jill said...

Hi again Rosie! Oh those windows sound divine, I just loved Liz Taylor and her jewelry collection. I don't know if I will make it into the city to see these windows in time--but maybe they will hold them over for a little while? Thank you for telling me about them! XO, Jill

Hi Jill,
I really liked this post, the picture of the girl, and guy and dog is great. Love that city feel, nothing like it. Cheers, Nancy (Stonecrop Sister)

Hi Nancy, how are you? I have to remind myself I live in NYC all the time and there's nothing like a trip to Fifth Avenue to make that happen! I will have more pictures to share next week! XO, Jill
