Heritage, prestige, quality, unexpectedness, glamour and timelessness—these are the common values that bring together these two emblematic and prestigious Italian brands to create the beautiful, luxurious, and iconic Special Edition San Pellegrino 1 liter bottle signed “sparkles with Bvlgari,” for the Italian jeweler’s 125 anniversary celebration.
“San Pellegrino is a symbol of the Italian art of living and partnering with Bvlgari adds power to our efforts to bring the finest side of Italy to the Puerto Rican market,” expressed Michelle López, Brand Manager for Méndez & Co.
San Pellegrino, founded in 1899, is recognized worldwide for its legendary sparkling mineral water, it has even been said that Leonardo da Vinci himself travelled to San Pellegrino for a taste of its miraculous waters. Now—bedecked with a yellow gold necklace, embellished by brilliant cut diamonds, turquoises, amethysts, and cabochon emeralds from the Bvlgari Vintage collection of 1965— jewel among jewels, the S. Pellegrino iconic bottle is sure to sparkle even more magnificently.
As a connoisseur of mineral water, I’ve always deferred to San Pellegrino as my sparkling water of choice, but if there were ever a doubt before, the Bvlgari golden label— with its splendid jewels— is brilliant enough to captivate and engage my attention. After all, diamonds—especially Bvlgari diamonds, set in a vintage necklace with amethysts and turquoises—are a girl’s best friends. Personally, rather than have the necklace wrapped around the bottle, I’d prefer its glittering glory around my throat as I sip S. Pellegrino, but I’ll settle for staring at the bottle.
The commemorative bottle will be available at select fine-dining restaurants and, of course, La Bodega de Méndez in Guaynabo, Ponce, and Añasco. For more information, visit www.labodegademendez.com
