WHERE CAN I SELL BULGARI DIVAS’ DREAM JEWELRY?
The good news: you have lots of options. The bad news: Most involve lots and lots of waiting. For example, you can submit your Bulgari jewelry to auction sites and wait for bids. Or place your piece with an auction house or consignment seller and wait for a sale.

- Your client manager will provide your price quote and be able to explain how he or she arrived at that price.

HOW MUCH IS MY BULGARI DIVAS’ DREAM JEWELRY WORTH?
The resale value of your Divas’ Dream jewelry will depend on a combination of these factors:
Jewelry Type: Are you selling a piece of high jewelry, a piece of fine jewelry from a recent collection? Is your piece a ring, necklace, bracelet, earrings, or a watch?
Authenticity card, packaging, and receipt: Bulgari ships its jewelry with a digital authenticity card, which allows you to scan the product’s QR code with your smartphone and get more information about your jewelry. The card, which also acts as a warranty for two years after purchase, is prized by buyers and collectors as a confirmation that your jewelry is genuine. Likewise, your Divas’ Dream piece will be worth more if you have the original packaging and receipt.
Gemstones: How many stones does the piece have? What are they? Are they faceted or cabochon? If your piece incorporates pavé diamonds, you don’t have to count the stones, but be sure to specify their total carat weight (you should be able to find that information by scanning the QR code).
Size: If you have a ring, what size is it? Because of their shape and the way gemstones are set, some rings in the Divas’ Dream collection are tricky to resize. A popular size will be easier to sell.
Condition: The value for jewelry with only minor signs of wear will be stronger. Alternatively, jewelry with significant wear and damage will have a lower value to compensate for the cost of repairs.

ABOUT BULGARI DIVAS’ DREAM JEWELRY
Founded in 1884 by Greek-born silversmith Sortirio Boulgaris, who shortened his surname to its Latin form when he emigrated to Italy, the luxury brand as we now know it began in 1910 when Bulgari’s two sons moved to a small shop at 10 via dei Condotti near Rome’s Spanish Steps.
By the 1950s, their business was booming. The Eternal City’s economy was enjoying a second renaissance, Cincecittà was the largest movie studio in Europe, and screen divas loved nothing better than draping themselves in Bulgari’s distinctive and dramatic jewelry. Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Sofia Loren, Anita Ekberg, Monica Vitti, and Gina Lollabrigida all adored Bulgari. So did everyone else who came through Rome.
Bulgari was the jeweler to the jet set. When Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton met in Rome during the filming of Cleopatra in 1963, Burton would joke, “I introduced Liz to beer, she introduced me to Bulgari.”
Fast forward to 2013, when Bulgari creative director Lucia Silvestri launched the collection of high jewelry that came to be called “Divas’ Dream.” As its signature motif, Silvestri used the fan shape seen in mosaic floors of the ancient Roman Baths of Caracalla, a site that she declared synonymous with feminine indulgence.
Shortly afterward, the collection expanded to spectacularly colorful, gem-set watches: their faces framed by rows of curved fan shapes glittering with 20 carats or more of individual- and pavé-set precious stones. Then came collections of Divas’ Dream fine jewelry with Bulgari’s trademark mix of gold, diamonds, and semi-precious stones like carnelian, malachite, turquoise, onyx, and mother of pearl.
Most recently, the collection expanded again to include limited-edition watches that, while no less dazzling, were more suited to daywear, like Divina Tourbillon Phoenix, with its skeletonized dial and hand-painted phoenix and flames. Along with Serpenti, Fiorever, and B.zero1, Divas’ Dream has become a mainstay collection—glittering, glamorous, and unmistakably Bulgari.
