Sir Elton John and David Furnish make an appearance at the Bulgari Gem Table in Rome

Sir Elton, alongside Bulgari Creative Director Lucia Silvestri, manifested a design that will be auctioned off at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Gala – a commemoration to the charity’s 25th Anniversary.

To debut the following year, the design will cohesively combine style elements in an unexpected manner. Speaking of the opportunity to join Lucia in the creative process, Elton John spoke to his pride, in that “this exquisite piece will also help save lives around the world and help us defeat AIDS. It shows how Bulgari and the Elton John AIDS Foundation can use creativity in wonderful and new ways.”

The same day, Sir Elton joined Andrea Bocelli, as they graced the stage of the Colosseum in Rome for a musical event, coinciding with Celebrity Fight Night in Italy.
