Myth

The goal of any great jeweler is to imagine a jewel that tells its story, and to engrave its philosophy irrefutably and universally. Bulgari reached this Grail in 1999 with the creation of the ring "B.zero1" which captures the essence of the Roman art of living by injecting the fluid geometry of the Colosseum into the singular spirals of this striking design jewel.

Origin

To print his signature while freeing himself from conventions, Bulgari has combined original know-how and mythical figure. Created in the 1960s, the famous technique "Tubogas" - which evokes gas pipes - develops here its generous and fleshy spirals with a hollow cylindrical heart to constitute a jewel of character, full of strength and sensuality.

Know how

For this anniversary collection, the long gold ribbons of the spiral "B.zero1" wrap and interlock seamlessly to form five crowned bands, at the top and bottom of the ring, of flat rings embellished with the logo bvlgari bvlgari. This logo is also detached on voluptuous bracelets with fine structure that facilitates stacking. A "xx Anniversary" engraved on the inner ring of the five-band rings reminds us that these are collector's items.
