The snake was always one of the favorite themes of Bulgari. Since the 1950s, Bulgari has designed snake watch-bracelet in a variety of colour combinations, but no doubt the great success came with the introduction of the polychrome enamel or gemstone versions. Since then, the 'Serpenti' has been an emblem of the jewellery house, celebrated through books, events and new collections.
Although numerous snake watches have found their way through auction, the present version in cream and pink enamel is one of the rarest. Diana Vreeland, famous fashion editor for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, owned a snake belt of similar colour combination, the only pink and cream snake to have been seen until today.
