Marina B’s A-List Fan Club

Getting your start in the family business isn’t exactly the road less traveled — unless that family is the legendary jewelry dynasty known as Bulgari. Marina Bulgari, granddaughter of founder Sottiro Bulgari, designed under the Italian brand for years after graduating college, but launched her own namesake line in the late ’70s, leaving her heritage mark to just a single initial. The Roman-born designer’s strikingly colorful gems — available for the first time today on Gilt — soon caught the eye of the international jet set, and were a favorite of Hollywood icons like Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, and Princess Grace. Today’s A-listers are equally charmed by the bold, sculptural designs: See how celeb devotees like Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, and Amy Adams wear Marina B, and get the look for yourself with a stunning, heirloom-worthy piece from our sale, starting tonight at 9pm ET.
