BULGARI Monete Tubogas Diamond Choker Necklace in 18k Yellow and 18k White Gold.
A significant choker necklace fusing the legendary Monete and Tubogas collections by Bulgari, featuring an ancient coin with a halo of round brilliant diamonds. The Monete collection was first introduced by Bulgari in the 1960s, and remains one of the most iconic collections due to the incredible history behind each piece. The origin of this particular coin is from the Persian Empire and includes a hand-engraved inscription on the back frame stating ‘Sassonidi Xusro II 591-628 AD’. In addition, the Tubogas flexible piping was developed in the second half of the 20th century by Bulgari and revived by the Casa in the 1970s. Together the two motifs come alive in this authentic vintage necklace dating from the 1970s.
Measures approx.1.43″ in width; inner circumference end to end approx. 13″. However, its flexible design can fit most every neck. No clasp; rather a memory spring fitting.
Made in Italy. Signed “Bvlgari”; circa 1970s.
