Bulgari's Serpenti rears its head again.

BVlgari’s Serpenti watch has shed its skin once more. Now, two coils of rose gold envelop the wrist in their sinuous embrace while diamond-studded enamel completes the seduction. Yet, this is not another facile bedazzler with nothing but looks. The ease with which the supple bracelet slithers on, and the meticulous finish hint at the craftsmanship needed to craft the pieces as each link was handmade, linked and fitted with a white gold internal spring. Charismatic and bewitching, this latest incarnation is a fitting continuation of the house’s Serpenti legend.
