    Notes: A magnificent articulated collar necklace! Marked ©Marina B, 750, c 1777. Unable to measure the depth of the tourmaline due to the nature of the setting. There is a small opening at one end of the piece exposing an interior screw mechanism--does not seem to affect wearing the piece.


    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.
