B.zero1 is already 20. Always iconic, always sophisticated and altogether desirable, the Colosseum-inspired B.zero1 has always been remembered and loved for its rule-breaking design since its birth in 1999. Capturing the amphitheatre’s fluid geometry, the B.zero1 encompasses Bvlgari’s visionary and craftsmanship with its first-of-its-kind technique that winds traditional Tubogas or gas-pipe into a new type of spiral with a hollow, cylindrical core.
Through its 20-year life as one of the world’s most desirable accessories, over 2,000,000 rings are sold worldwide. It’s reimagined, and envisioned by the world’s most creative minds like sculptor Anish Kapoor and architect Zaha Hadid. With such history and story, B,zero1 has so much to celebrate, and Bvlgari does celebrate it…big. The iconic collection is coming in new limited editions, and even in new variations beyond its original “jewellery” form.
The B.zero1 Reimagined
Let’s start with the jewellery collection. Bvlgari is reissuing the original, 5-band ring — the boldest B.zero1 iteration. Coming in yellow gold and solid white gold like the original 1999 version, and in rose gold for the first time, this celebratory ring is encrusted with pavé diamonds
In addition, we also have the twentieth anniversary collection of B.zero1, restyled for a light wearability as the body of the bracelets perfectly embraces the wrist, while the new thinner structure makes them easy to be stacked together. All designs are engraved with “XX Anniversary” in their internal ferrule.
Modern favourite like the B.zero1 Design Legend, designed by the late architectural legend Zaha Hadid, also comes in a new version for the anniversary. The latest variation, while preserving its original rose gold form, adds an inner core of black or white ceramic.

The New B.zero1 Eyewear
The iconic B.zero1 jewellery lends its sharp and edgy lines to the new B.zero1 eyewear collection: B.purevibes, B.stripe, B.glassy and B.super. Its architectural shape, a strong sense of design and a creative decomposition of spirals define the essence of the eyewear models, all featured in the latest campaign starring Bella Hadid. The B.purevibes sunglasses feature a semi-rimless cat-eye frame finished with a metal décor evoking the outline of the legendary ring while the stripe motif is unmistakably a reiteration of the ring’s spiral. The B.stripe comes in semi-rimless oval shape with laser stripes. The B.glassy is an optical item with a sharp appeal: a top metal browline crowns a rounded frame while the bold lines of the B.zero1 is reinterpreted into its temples. The final piece, B.super — a feminine, more rounded twist on the classic pilot shape with a metal browline striking instead a futuristic flair.

The B.zero1 Handbag
The new B.zero1 handbag borrows its powerful lines and sculpted ground-breaking shape from the B.zero1 jewellery. Designed as a functional and practical bucket, it reimagines the spiralled lines of the ring into clean, sharp and utterly elegant contours. The cylindrical spiral serves to tie the bag’s drawstrings while the detachable shoulder strap is linked to the body with two rings featuring the emblematic Bvlgari double-logo engraving. The many variations of the bag includes classic contrast of Black and White Agate, Milky Opal with Tropical Turquoise or Sea Star Coral as well as a luxurious White Agate calf leather and Origami Python.
