About Marina B Brand
If we wanted to define Marina B jewelry in three words, we would say: “Fun, Sophisticated, and… More fun.”
Candy-colored stones, glittery diamond settings and whimsical shapes — it’s the 1980s after all. But don’t be fooled by the playfulness of the look. The workmanship of Marina B collection is impeccable. The brand’s founder came from the famous Maison where she learned the best practice of jewelry making. It’s an Italian luxury in bloom made by the highest goldsmith standards.
Marina Bulgari was born in Rome in 1930. She was part of the famous Bulgari family, renowned for their jewelry business. Her father, Giorgio Bulgari, was a key figure in the Bulgari jewelry empire.
Marina B’s innovative approach to jewelry design made a lasting impact on the industry. Her designs, such as Collier, Egeo, and Boule, continue to be sough-after for the artistic and avant-garde look. Marina B was renowned for her use of unconventional gemstone cuts. She often employed fancy-shaped gemstones, including kite-shaped, trapezoidal, and freeform cuts.
In 1993, the Marina B brand was acquired by TTF, a Swiss luxury group. Under new ownership, the brand continued to produce jewelry inspired by Marina B’s original vision.

About Estate Jewelry
Buying jewelry online can be challenging. The quality of the making has not got better over the time while the design is getting more and more generic. Add ever rising prices and you could end up with not finding anything suitable. To purchase a high-quality jewelry piece for an obtainable price consider buying estate items.
• Quality vs Quantity
Estate pieces mostly belong to the era when jewels were handmade and not mass produced. There were simply less jewelry makers at that time and they cared about their reputation. Opposed to the current fast fashion approach, life pace was in general slower. That allowed makers to take more time to craft a truly quality piece.
•Fair Price vs Overpriced
Buying designer pieces aka signed pieces we pay not only for an item itself. The brand advertising campaigns and all the buzz the name is creating is in the cost. Prices for estate jewelry form differently and mostly depend on the cost paid by a seller. A pre-owned Bulgari ring and a brand-new Bulgari piece have a distinct price difference. Ask your local jewelry store about the retail price of the desired piece and you’d be pleasantly surprised.
• True Value vs Seasonal Rush
Pre-owned jewelry retains its value. Over the time it gets rare
and more expensive. Think purchasing a new car that loses its value right after you left your dealer versus buying a vintage vehicle.
