You have seen the famous jewelry of Bulgari in the movies, it often graces the necks and arms of classic film stars like Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor.
Now you can check out these luxurious pieces of art up close at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, where the Art of Bulgari: Dolce Vita and Beyond 1950-1900 exhibit showcases about 150 pieces that were created by the Italian master over a period of 40 years.
The exhibit is on now and runs through February 17th, 2014, making it a perfect excuse to come to the city in winter or even as a back-up plan when visiting the park on day that turns from sun to fog - something quite common in San Francisco.
For more info and ticketing information visit the de Young Museum's official website.
