The Shining

Megawattage On and Off the Screen

For the October 1992 cover of Vogue Italia, Oscar-winning screen siren Sophia Loren played part snow queen, part ice princess, thanks to 167.89 cts. t.w. of her beloved Bulgari diamonds. “Sophia Loren has been a regular visitor of Bulgari since the 1950s,” says vice chairman Nicola Bulgari. “She visited our via dei Condotti store in Rome along with other ­Hollywood stars, including Anna Magnani, Gina ­Lollobrigida, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Elizabeth Taylor…to name a few!” This 18k yellow gold and diamond set was created for the High Jewelry collection. “The design of the necklace complements her exquisite décolletage.” On that subject, we will take Signore Bulgari’s word.
