Overview

The luxurious Italian brand Bvlgari (or in English -- Bulgari) was founded in 1884 by Sotirios Voulgaris, a jeweller from Cyprus. With the help of his two sons, Costantino and Giorgio, Bulgari stores quickly became a playground for the rich and famous. In 2011, the French luxury group LVMH bought Bulgari SpA for a staggering 6.01 billion dollars -- higher than any amount the group had paid for any deal previously.
