From the Bulgari Serpenti collection is this fierce timepiece made from 18k white or rose gold and adorned with onyx, diamonds, pink coral, and jade. This watch is simply a show-stopper.

The Bulgari Serpenti collection watch is supposedly a throwback to Egyptian-style jewelry, which was garish and opulent.

The white gold and diamond model is more subtle and understated, but the two-toned model of the Bulgari Serpenti collection is stunning.

Implications - For decades in modern society, the infinite variety of animal skins and prints that exist have inspired fashions and accessories. The interesting textures, patterns and colors make for original designs that are familiar to consumers yet offer unique interpretations of this familiarity. With the rise of the animal movement, the killing of animals for fashion has become taboo. As a result, animals are inspiring fashions in more creative ways that do not require killing, but use shapes and patterns associated with them.
