Andy Warhol said: "When I'm in Rome I always visit Bulgari, because it is the most important museum of contemporary art."

This bracelet is a beautiful example of the contribution that Bvlgari has made to jewellery. They were the first ones to apply cabochon cut to semi precious stones and to use them to enhance the settings for emeralds, rubies and sapphires.

This bangle comes up for auction at Sotheby's London on Dec 14th
