Born into a famed jewelry family, Marina Bulgari managed to make a name for herself when she founded her own line of baubles, Marina B, in 1976. She became known for her geometric shapes, spring-mounted necklaces and bracelets, and unusual treatment of colorful precious stones, and her creations were a huge hit among her European jetsetter pals (and such movie stars as Sophia Loren). She sold the line in 1999, but fortunately today’s girls-about-town can discover her work for themselves. The design team behind Windsor Jewelers delved into the Marina B archives and even turned to the same Italian artisans with whom Bulgari worked to revive the line, starting this fall with pieces like this geometri 18-karat gold choker with an assortment of diamonds and cabochon rubies.
