In keeping with the Desert Bloom collection presented at Baselworld, this unique piece highlights the jewelry-making expertise of the Maison.

No less than four different types of settings have been used to showcase the marquise and brilliant cut diamonds. Like a flower’s petals, each marquise cut diamond is accentuated by the feather setting, a signature of the Maison.

The mask is fastened at the back of the head with a satin ribbon.

farnese blue diamond
BVLGARI AND THE FARNESE BLUE DIAMOND

Bvlgari is proud to add a new chapter to its glittering diamond saga. The Brand will present the new life of an extraordinary historical stone – the Farnese Blue Diamond – and feature it as the special “guest star” of its 2019 Cinemagia High Jewelry collection.

A masterful and very subtle recut has unlocked the potential of this 300-year-old diamond. The original amazing stone has been turned into a unique miracle of nature and workmanship to be set on a contemporary Bvlgari creation.

THE FARNESE BLUE DIAMOND: 300 YEARS OF HISTORY

As its name indicates, the Farnese Blue has been linked to Italy for more than 300 years. The Farnese family is first mentioned in historical records as ruling the ancient city of Orvieto in 980, but their unforgettable saga really begins to intensify at the end of the 15th century when Alessandro Farnese (1468-1549) became pope under the name of Paul III.

Alessandro’s palace (now the French embassy) and his Villa Farnesina, both in Rome, are testimonies to his patronage of the arts. His son, Piero-Luigi, would become the first duke of Parma and the founder of a dynasty. In 1714, the last Farnese princess, Elisabetta, brought additional glory to the history of the family when she married King Philippe V and became Queen of Spain.

Due to a long war of succession, Spanish finances were in a very bad state at the time. In order to provide a suitable dowry for the new queen, all the Spanish colonies were requested to send wedding presents. A fleet of 12 ships sailed at the beginning of 1715 from Cuba, carrying gifts of gold, pearls, diamonds and enormous emeralds.

Unfortunately, the fleet encountered a hurricane in the Gulf of Florida and eleven of the ships were destroyed. Only one reached Sevilla, carrying the magnificent wedding present of the governor of the Philippines Islands: a blue diamond of 6.16 carats.

Elisabetta’s union with King Philippe V of Spain was a very happy one and they had numerous children. However, it seems Queen Elisabetta had a special fondness for her second son, Philippe. In 1748, she managed to obtain for him the dukedoms of Parma and Piacenza, the estates of her Farnese ancestors whose male line was extinct. Philippe sailed for Italy and it is presumably around that time that his mother gave him the blue diamond.

For more than 250 years, the Farnese Blue Diamond was kept as part of the treasure of the Bourbon-Parma family. It was used in two settings: as a jewel on a tie pin and as an ornament on a wide diamond tiara. In 2018, the Farnese Blue Diamond was sold in Geneva by descendants of the Bourbon-Parma family for 6.7 million dollars.

MAGNITUDE

IN MAGNITUDE, CARTIER’S NEW HIGH JEWELLERY COLLECTION, MATERIALS COLLIDE IN A MARRIAGE OF PRECIOUS STONES AND ORNAMENTAL HARD STONES RARELY SEEN IN HIGH JEWELLERY.

AN UNEXPECTED ENCOUNTER, A STYLISTIC FEATURE STEEPED IN CHARACTER THAT BALANCES TECHNIQUE WITH CREATIVE FLAIR, UPDATED BY CARTIER TIME AND AGAIN SINCE THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY.

Original form, landscaped material, primary colours, varied nuances: the design translates the power of confrontation through an interplay of lines, ruptured rhythms and flowing movements. Light flashes from stones that bear the memory of the world. From this glittering collision, rippling rays of light project the force of the origins into the future.

ZEMIA

Blue and purple sapphire, garnets and diamonds compose the material-landscape of the bracelet. At its centre is a 77.27-carat matrix opal. The evocative power of this fascinating gem sets the tone for the whole creation, from the choice of materials to the choice of colours. Rocky brown, aquatic and icy blues and flashes of purple make for harmonies of earthy colours with a hint of electricity.

Fused together in the central stone, the tones diffuse across the bracelet. Adding to the potent colours and contrasts is the evocative power of the cuts: round, faceted, fleshy briolettes; the glittering frosty bite of the geometric motifs in diamonds. This mobile, animated piece is an impressive feat of jewellery – a world worn preciously upon the wrist.

SORELI

Cartier has chosen to place a cabochon-cut rutilated quartz laden with inclusions at the centre of this secret watch. Selected for its intense radiance, honeyed tones and cabochon curve, the translucent stone is flanked by kite-shaped and brilliant-cut diamonds. Traversed with strands of light, the stone gleams with life that sparkles over rows of diamonds across the cuff.

The generous sun-drenched, organic material of the stone contrasts with the order of complex graphic motifs composed of diamonds – an allusion to white bracelets in the Art Deco style. At the touch of a tiny button the cover opens halfway; it is then lifted up to reveal the watch dial. This two-phase mechanism – a detail for connoisseurs – is one of the signatures of the Maison. Tense, rhythmic and dynamic: the concentrated brilliance of the gem illuminates the entire composition.

YUMA

In this necklace, Cartier captures the variations of the sun in a palette of diamonds ranging from golden yellow to brown. The large number of cuts, rich colours of the stones and shimmering tones all amplify the dazzling effect. The graphic lines of the design accentuate the radiant effect of this solar necklace. Crafted with subtle refinement, the piece is articulated to create additional fluidity and mobility. A powerful creative vision has inspired this incontrovertible demonstration of High Jewellery expertise.

ÉQUINOXE

Within a nebula of yellow, orange and white diamonds, orange-toned yellow sapphire and lapis lazuli, an entire universe by Cartier unfurls. Pure blue and harmonies of yellow are arranged in stark bursts of colour around the central sapphire whose sparkle illuminates the whole piece. This stone is the sun. With a striking intensity of colour and octagonal shape, it is the radiant light source to a mesh of coloured diamonds that is fully articulated and supple.

The yellow, orange and white diamonds meanwhile are the stars in this entirely openwork lacy constellation that twinkles upon the skin. In this creation Cartier brings together a rare ensemble of lapis lazuli beads whose homogeneous substance is troubled, yet enhanced, by sprinklings of pyrite dust. Lapis lazuli, of course, is the deep blue of space and the starry night sky.

THÉIA

This necklace is structured around a striking ensemble of seven round-shaped Colombian emeralds. Cartier jewellers have nestled these famously delicate gems inside levelled rock crystal motifs. Emerald meets its perfect match with rock crystal as the two collide in rippling reverberation. Against the skin, the reverse of the rock crystal section is faceted throughout. This technique – a jeweller’s secret – is invisible to the eye but adds to the sparkle of the emeralds.

The geometry and optical illusions of the design borrow from the codes of kinetic art, from contrasting colours to the skillful use of transparency. Green and black is a signature Cartier colour pairing. Here onyx functions as a graphic signal, a punctuation mark around the emeralds, on quartz or diamonds. The repetition of the motifs and the stones induces a rhythm that ricochets, rebounds, never stops. The pendant of the necklace may be removed and worn as a brooch or on a chain in the tradition of transformable pieces by the Maison. As always at Cartier, back and front have the same force: an additional pendant can be found at the clasp on the back.
