Fine jewelry expert Meylan (Van Cleef & Arpels) tells the stories of the famous clients of the Roman jewelry house Bulgari, and their jewels, including the Countess di Frasso; actor Tyrone Power and his wife, Linda Christian, who were married in Rome; socialite Brooke Astor; and actress and jewelry collector Elizabeth Taylor, among others.
VERDICT Not a general history or overview of the house of Bulgari, but for those who already know about the jeweler and want to learn more about specific clients and their collections, this is a keeper.
