Known for bold gold and colorful gemstone designs reflecting a modern Italian spirit, Marina Bulgari forged a signature collection bearing the name Marina B in the mid-1970s. A member of the famous Bulgari jewelry family, the designer created a following of loyal fans that lasted nearly three decades, and now the brand has been brought back for fall under new ownership, but featuring the same familiar stylish themes.

With an archive of hundreds of sketches and jewelry examples, the new owners re-created a collection featuring Marina B’s best-selling items over the years and particularly focused on designs that are of the moment. Voluptuous, bold classics like the Agostino ring from 1983 feature a big cabochon rubellite set in black jade and 18-karat gold with diamond accents in a modern, clean style. The collection features a collection of bold gold designs such as a necklace composed of gold balls that is versatile for day or evening. The collection was unveiled in 14 Neiman Marcus stores and Dorfman’s in Boston this fall. Prices range from $4,200 to $63,000, and some one-of-a-kind commissions are over $1 million.
