The special edition stamp worth 77 cents features a 1965 yellow gold and platinum necklace dripping with amethysts, turquoises, emeralds and diamonds. On Friday, Poste Italiane will issue 3.5 million pieces of the stamp. Philatelics may try their luck in the post offices of Rome, Milan, Venice and Naples, where it’s available, and online at An article detailing an extensive history of the brand, penned by Bulgari Group chairman Paolo Bulgari, complements the purchase.

The Bulgari stamp joins two others dedicated to Made In Italy products — the Fiat 500 and the Lamborghini Miura. Other activities scheduled to mark Bulgari’s anniversary include a retrospective called “Between Eternity and History” that will be held on May 22 in Rome, followed by a party. At the same time, the firm will showcase 15 high jewelry designs and eight exclusive timepieces worth an estimated 3 million euros, or $3.9 million. The pieces will be auctioned off in December in New York, with all the proceeds going toward the charity.
