“Bulgari: 130 Years of Masterpieces”

Houstonians get the chance to ogle some 150 pieces of spectacular jewelry worn by such Hollywood legends as Sophia Loren, Ingrid Bergman and Grace Kelly, along with pieces once owned by Elizabeth Taylor, at “Bulgari: 130 Years of Masterpieces” the exhibition. Bulgari necklaces from contemporary actresses Milla Jovovich, Jennifer Aniston, Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore, and Houstonians Lynn Wyatt and Joanne King Herring, will be on display as well.

“Because the Houston Museum of Natural Science is home to one of the finest collections of natural gem crystals in the world, I have a deep appreciation for the quality and diversity of the gems that Bulgari uses,” says museum president Joel A. Bartsch. “Bulgari not only pays homage to the great masters of the past, they also continuously push the envelope in jewelry design and cutting ­edge technology into the future.”
