Celebrities shine at Bulgari Mediterranea High Jewelry collection launch event in Venice



Star-studded event was attended by Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway, K-Pop singer Lisa of Blackpink and Zendaya, the four global ambassadors of the brand

Bulgari, founded in Rome in 1884 by Sotirio Bulgari, travelled back to its roots with the launch of the Mediterranea High Jewelry 2023 collection in Venice on May 17. Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin has referred to this collection as the pinnacle of Bulgari’s identity in terms of creativity and craftsmanship, as well as a celebration of the founder’s vision. Bulgari attempts to showcase vibrance, nature’s opulence and mysticism through the high jewellery pieces. The latest collection represents the aesthetics of ocean and corals, ancient craft, the confluence of the Orient and the occident.

The Mediterranea High Jewellery collection is divided into three dimensions – ‘Southern Radiance’, ‘Roman Splendour’ and ‘East Meets West’ – which encompass and capture the essence and influences of the Mediterranean world. The event was attended by Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway, Zendaya and K-Pop singer Lisa of Blackpink, the four global ambassadors of the brand. The four leading ladies of entertainment from around the world assembled at the Bulgari event in luxury couture paired with neckpieces from Bulgari’s collection.

Priyanka Chopra

The Citadel actor wore the Prodigious colour necklace from Bulgari’s Magnifica High Jewellery Collection. It is a rose gold necklace embellished with cabochon amethyst, citrine, rubellite, blue topaz and pink quartz set amidst diamonds and green tourmalines.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway attended the event in a hooded silver and gold Atelier Versace dress with a high-leg slit. She donned a ruby and diamond necklace from Bulgari.


K-pop group Blackpink’s singer Lisa wore Bulgari’s Emerald Venus necklace with her black off-shoulder dress. The neckpiece has an octagonal-cut Colombian emerald, and the small emeralds attached to the diamond-set leaves look like a vine, which can be likened to Venus’s hair. Lisa is seen wearing matching earrings with the necklace.


Zendaya wore a black custom Richard Quinn gown with muted sleeves. The Bulgari Serpenti diamond necklace added the right amount of glamour by being paired with the darker tone of the outfit she chose.

Yang Yang

Chinese actor and brand ambassador of Bulgari Parfums, Yang Yang, also attended the event. He arrived in a Serpenti neckpiece and jewelled brooch to compliment his off-white and black suited-up look. At the main event, Yang was seen in another Bulgari jewelled brooch pinned to his all-black suit.
