    Marina B.: The B stands for Bvlgari. Rather than ride on family fame, the third generation designer distanced herself from the day to day operations of Bvlgari to create her own business. She is recognized for her fanciful use of color, blended with modern style and innovation. Voluminous, bold and colorful designs are her trademark. Has her own signature gemstone cut, referred to as the “Marina B cut”, falling halfway between a heart and a triangle.
