Marina Bulgari, the founder of the brand, is considered to be one of the most prominent women in the jewelry business of our time. Her father was a Greek and her mother, a German Italian. Marina is a Mathematics graduate with a strong interest in art and architecture who finally opted to become an artisan of luxury jewelry.
She belongs to the third generation of the Bulgari family to enter the business. After having traveled the world extensively for a considerable period of time, she returned to Italy to manage her father’s goldsmith’s house, the legendary Bulgari House. The owner’s creativeness and fabulous designing skills have significantly enhanced the brand’s reputation.
Following the demise of her father, in 1973, Marina and her sister, Anna, took over central management of the house. However, in 1976, Marina’s adventurous and ambitious nature prompted her to leave her family’s renowned Maison to form her own brand, Marina B. Driven by her family’s passion for jewelry designing and talented heritage, it wasn’t long before the brand's popularity grew and Marina established her first showroom in 1978, in Geneva. This resulted in the opening of many more boutiques in a number of prominent cities worldwide, including New York, Tokyo, London, Milan, and Geneva.
Right from the outset, Marina B jewelry pieces have acquired inspiration from Greek and Italian legends. This is where the spectacular jewelry, with geometric patterns and adorned with diamonds and semi-precious gems, originated from. Considering her heritage, it’s no wonder that her creations are similar to the ones made by her family at Maison Bulgari. The ornaments' exclusive and daring looks have proven to be highly tempting for both celebrities and the wealthy middle class.
Some renowned customers of the brand include Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Grace of Monaco, Sophia Loren, and others. The jewelry pieces are comfortable to wear; a blend of trendiness and elegance. Timeless designs that ideally suit all times and occasions; being passed on from one generation to the other. In 2017, the brand was acquired by Guy Bedarida who became its new Creative Director.
