With 2019 marking the twentieth anniversary of an icon, none of us expect less than a true celebration that makes this year more exciting than ever. In fact, Bvlgari’s B.zero1 has become more than an icon; it has defied all conventions and broken all the rules to become icon of the icons.

True to the house’s spirit and values, this collection witnessed collaborations with two great creative minds, sculptor Anish Kapoor and late architect Zaha Hadid – which made it all the more coveted. With more than 2,000,000 rings sold worldwide, Bvlgari redefined the concept of mixing boldness with timelessness.

Since the anniversary of an icon calls for more than this, Bvlgari also celebrates this occasion with a collection that uses the Tubogas method.
