Within the history of the lapidary arts, the so-called “CABOCHON” cut is considered one of the oldest techniques of cutting gems.

Appreciated since Antiquity, this technique was practiced by craftsmen from China to the Mediterranean basin, via India, because it highlighted the color of the gemstones.

The CABOCHON cut became a signature of Bulgari, from the mid-20th century onwards. This exhibition of jewels, drawings and archives, gathered from the Bulgari Heritage collection, depicts this love story between a great jeweler and an incredible lapidary craftsmanship.
