Right from the time of its launch in 2014, Lvcea asserted itself as the new muse among Bulgari ladies’ watches. Everything about its appearance evokes the style signatures of the Rome-based jeweller.

Lvcea is born of light. Three new interpretations draw all eyes, elegantly and intensely reflecting the purity of light. In its new 23 mm-diameter size, this dainty jewellery watch reveals its full splendour. Bulgari has chosen to adorn white gold with the four gems traditionally considered the most precious: diamonds, the royal stone; emeralds, the most sought-after form of beryl; as well as the two most prestigious corundums, sapphire and ruby. In its all-diamond version issued in a five-piece limited edition, Lvcea is swept over blued hands and its crown features a sapphire cabochon set with a brilliant-cut diamond.

The Lvcea bracelet with its emblematic link endows the eponymous collection with its unique and highly distinctive character. It calls for 132 hours of gemsetting alternating between invisible and close setting. 310 stones of 31 different sizes adorn its 85 components. Each of its links is set with 15 stones of different sizes. The clasp link alone features 20 stones of 17 different sizes. This construction has been entirely revamped in relation to the original model. In terms of carat weights, there are 14.01 cts for the diamond version.
