Prepare to be dazzled by a brand new exhibition at NGV International. Created in partnership with Bulgari Heritage, Italian Jewels: Bulgari Style features close to 100 spectacular pieces from the iconic jewellery brand, whose name is inextricably linked with Hollywood glamour.

On display at the gallery from September 30 to January 29, the free exhibition draws from the personal collection of movie icon Elizabeth Taylor, while also featuring jewels worn by the likes of Grace Kelly and Keira Knightley. In addition to the rocks themselves, the exhibition combines photographs and snippets of film, showcasing the stars and their expensive accessories in all their glitzy glory.

Running alongside the exhibition are various talks and public programs, featuring curators, designers, academics and jewellers. And speaking of Taylor, the gallery will also host a free screening of Cleopatra on October 9.
