Milan — By introducing Le Gemme, a collection of haute jewelry eyewear, Bulgari and Luxottica are scaling to the highest peak of the luxury pyramid.
Inspired by nature and Bulgari’s iconic sapphire flower collection that harkens back to the Fifties and Sixties, Le Gemme features three distinct lines of sunglasses and prescription frames — a women’s line called Primavera; the Zephyr collection dedicated to men and the project’s crown jewel, Le Gemme Rare, or 10 one-of-kind eyeglasses enriched with precious stones such as diamonds and sapphires. The frames are entirely hand assembled in Italy by artisans in Luxottica’s Agordo plant.
