The first B.zero1 ring appeared in 1999 as a symbol of the new millennium. The jewelry turned out to be very avant-garde for its time: instead of diamonds, there was a powerful expressive design embodied in pure gold. The spiral between two flat rings with a double logo could be compressed and unclenched, despite the fact that there was no internal spring. The new piece anticipated modern jewelry design, combining industrialism, architectural appearance, gender neutrality, and a penchant for experimentation. For more than 20 years, the B.zero1 golden spiral has gone through many bold metamorphoses: it was covered with rocker spikes and diamonds, exchanged for ceramics and colored marble, deconstructed and skeletonized. Even the sculptor Anish Kapoor and the great architect Zaha Hadid worked on the B.zero1 rings.

The latest update is called B.zero1 New Classic. Classic rings in yellow, white and rose gold have been given a thin diamond track on the inside, which makes the jewelry even more dynamic.

The famous ring gave its name to the Bvlgari B.zero1 Avrora Awards, which this year was held for the first time in Europe, at the Luigi Bocconi University in Milan. The winners were strong independent women. Each of the winners has chosen a charitable foundation for which Bvlgari will make a donation.
