The nine daughters of Zeus, also known as the muses of knowledge and art, provided the creative spark for Bulgari’s latest MVSA high jewelry collection. Using emeralds, amethysts, tourmalines, rubies, spinels, and diamonds, these 26 pieces evoke the muses and related Greek mythology. Even the name MVSA is a play on words, using Bulgari’s signature “V” instead of “U” to create the Greek word for muse (pronounced moo-sa). Greek immigrant Sotirios Bulgari founded Bulgari in Rome 130 years ago.
