GET THIS BRACELET WATCH
Who does not need the enchantment of a rainbow after all the gloom of a pandemic year?
Possibly Bvlgari's boldest combination of coloured gems applied to high-end ladies watches featuring Serpenti Viper and Serpenti Incantati shapes, the new collection of Rainbow and Colour Wave Serpenti timepieces embodies the glamour and panache of Italian extravagance.
Encircling the wrist like the iconic original, three new Serpenti Viper editions reimagine the sinuous and seductive two-row wrist candy in glorious colour.
Serpenti Viper Rainbow is crafted in round-cut diamonds, pink, purple and blue sapphires, red rubies, orange spinels, yellow sapphires and green garnets and emeralds - set in a rose gold Serpenti Viper bracelet.
The Serpenti Viper Blue Colour Wave embraces a similar effect, rendering a range of brilliant blues in light and dark sapphires and white diamonds set in a white gold bracelet, as does the Serpenti Viper Red Colour Wave, which sets light and dark pink sapphires, red rubies and diamonds in a rose gold bracelet.
On the other hand, the Serpenti Incantati Rainbow features a yellow gold 33mm case.
Intense green tsavorites, yellow and orange sapphires, mandarin garnets, orange-red spinels, rubies, and pink, purple and blue sapphires of various cuts are seamlessly set to graduate into the next to form the body of the snake which wraps itself around the case, while over 280 brilliant-cut diamonds adorn the supple geometric jewellery bracelet.
Meanwhile, the Serpenti Incantati Blue Colour Wave features a white gold case set with light to dark blue sapphires and diamonds, and a bracelet set with 282 brilliant-cut diamonds.
They are now available at Bvlgari's Ion Orchard, Ngee Ann City and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands boutiques. Prices are available upon request at Bvlgari boutiques at Ion Orchard, Takashimaya and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

Continue to colour between the lines with Skechers' latest collaboration with Los Angeles-based streetwear label Chinatown Market, which draws from the latter's unique DIY elements and whimsical and fun messages of positivity.
