The Original Fortrove Designer
Jewelry Blog

Laura Harrier, up and coming actress, most known for her role in Spiderman: Homecoming and starring in the upcoming BlacKkKlansman, has become a darling of the red carpet.

Her designer of choice is the chic Louis Vuitton house, and Bulgari Jewelry seems to be outfitting the ingenue regularly.

In a sea of dazzling diamonds and divinity headpieces, Laura Harrier set herself apart at the recent Met Gala by wearing a chic two-piece black and white number by Louis Vuitton and, most notably to us, a large Bulgari coin necklace with matching earrings.

The look definitely stood out. While not truly achieving the theme of " Fashion and the Christian Imagination" it certainly set our imaginations running wild, as we can't help ourselves around Bulgari "Monete" coin necklaces.

Nicola Bulgari encouraged the debut of the Monete collection, the key theme of the pieces being the juxtaposition of ancient Roman coins and fine jewelry. In 1966, the first jewels bearing the real and untouched coins made it's debut, and has become one of the central collections at the jewelry house. Better still, each piece in the Monete collection features a little education, with the emperor's name and reign on as well as the type of coin engraved on the piece.

It's such a unique concept. It's often emulated but never duplicated. And that's why we love Bulgari Monete pieces.

Fortrove has an amazing Bulgari Monete necklace available, featuring Constantius II Aug. AD 337-361 coin.

Another option is this chic yellow and white gold link necklace.  It is stamped "Roma Gordianus Aug A.D. 238-244 " for the reign of Gordian III.
