Cleopatra’s sultry swipe of kohl eyeliner has long been adopted by the stylish set. But her penchant for reptilian adornments—a sign of power in ancient Egypt—has been a bit slower to take hold. Enter Bulgari’s iconic Serpenti watch, an 18-karat yellow-gold bracelet dotted with diamonds, which coils about the wrist for a statement-making take on time-telling. Cleopatra—and Liz Taylor—would approve. $38,400 at Govberg Jewelers, Rittenhouse and Ardmore.
