Bulgari

Bulgari

The jewellery makers are celebrating 125 years in the business in dazzling style. An exhibition of their glittering creations will be on display in Rome's Palazzo delle Esposizioni from 22 May. But tonight, guests including Selma Blair, Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field and Enrique Iglesias will get a sneak preview of the glittering exhibition.

If you happen to be in Rome before 13 September, be sure to head to the exhibition for an eyeful of Bulgari's designs. The jeweller's history is charted out in gems with a 20s and 30s section featuring Art Deco-inspired diamond jewellery, a 70s room full of Pop Art influenced pieces and plenty of signature Bulgari serpents and coin jewellery.

Most exciting part of the exhibition? Without a doubt Elizabeth Taylor's own personal collection of gems by the house. Liz has no less than 16 one-of-a-kind pieces of enormous value including a diamond brooch with an 18 carat emerald given to her by Richard Burton for their engagement in 1962.

Tonight promises to be a celebrity spectacular… Check back on InStyle.co.uk tomorrow for all the pictures!
