Another company that reflected the spirit of the time and the tastes of modern consumers was the Marina B. House, founded in 1979 by Marina, daughter of Constantine Bulgari, who decided to leave the family business in Rome and found her own in Geneva. Marina believed that jewelry should be highly decorative, and she perfectly understood the desires of her contemporaries. Her catchy multi-colored pieces are easily recognizable and are copied by many jewelry companies. Committed to lively, unusual chromatic combinations, Marina Bulgari often used black and colorless elements to accentuate the hues of precious stones.

Blackened gold, black onyx and black mother-of-pearl in her products set off the shine of diamonds, the play of pearls and the bright or muted colors of precious stones.
Following her concept that jewelry should not only be suitable for both daytime and evening wear, but also match the color of the outfit, Marina began producing products in which it was possible to change precious stones.
