Bulgari, the Italian luxury goods company known as much for its bold iconic jewelry as it is for the ancient Roman spelling of its name, is bringing its signature facial rituals to the United States -- and with it, a brand new line of gem-infused skincare.

Previously only available at Bulgari Resorts in Bali and Milan, you'll now be able to enjoy eight signature indulgences at select Neiman Marcus department stores across the country, as well as Bergdorf Goodman.

The brand's treatments combine the eastern massage practice of reflexology with lymphatic drainage to rev up the complexion, as well as, cocoon-like layering of skin-boosting ingredients.

Experiences always include massage treatment of the hands and décolleté, which stems from Bulgari's rich history in adorning both parts in jewels. "They're both parts that women draw attention to when wearing jewelry, so we always take special care of them during our rituals," explained Lorna, a Bulgari skin specialist whose expert hands treated us to our very own facial -- which had us dozing off in restful peace at one point.

Bulgari's new Source Defense line contains a blend of fine and precious stones to shield skin from environmental stressors, including antioxidants and hydrators to replenish complexions.

Yes, that means there are actually gems in the products -- and the swanky price tag reflects that. The Source Defense Crème and lighter Source Defense Emulsion both retail for $185, while the serum rings in at $190.

As Lorna went to work gently tapping and massaging our skin, we were pleasantly surprised by such feel-good additions as a warm neck compress and spine-tingling scalp massage.

It almost felt like we were in a tropical Bali paradise -- that is, until we walked back out into the horn-honking and elbow-pushing streets of New York City.

Now we can understand why you'd want to bring those little tubs filled with gems home with you.
