Quality in what I like

Some of my favourite things.

My favorite jewellery shop in Rome Bulgari since 1884 on Via Condotti 10 which connects with Piazza Spagna. This family business started in Italy at first as an extension of the established house of Boulgari in Greece.  It is pure pleasure to simply look at their magnificent creations, you do not have to buy, there is pleasure in simply looking. Regular customers who had pieces designed  are some great names like Anna Magnani and Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor, to name a few. A few years ago an exhibit was mounted in Rome of the history of the creations of Bulgari on display some 60 million euros of jewels, it was just breath taking.

Baratti & Milano Italian chocolates accredited to the Royal House of Savoy as the Coat of Arms attest. Really rich tasting and so nice.

A very nice shower and shampoo gel developed as a product line by the Jeweller. It really makes my day.


  1. I would love to have seen the Bulgari exhibit. I saw an exhbit of Cartier pieces at the Metrolpoitan Museum in NYC years ago. Aside from the beauty and creativity it is such a great insight into the way tastes change over time.

  2. only the simple things in life
