Bvlgari has hosted an intimate gathering inside the Italian Sydney flagship boutique to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its iconic B.Zero1 collection in conjunction with the launch of the boutique’s new Thursday Evenings Aperitivo.

Los Angeles-based Australian Actress and new brand ambassador Nathalie Kelley was joined in conversation with celebrity stylist Marina Didovich to discuss Nathalie’s own personal style, and forecast jewellery and accessory trends.

This year marks the momentous twentieth anniversary of Bvlgari’s iconic B.zero1 collection. Inspired by the Colosseum, Rome’s most magnificent monument, the Italian Maison broke the rules of jewellery design in 1999 to capture the amphitheater’s fluid geometry. Known for its visionary craftsmanship, Bvlgari developed a first-of-its-kind technique that winds traditional Tubogas or gas-pipe into a new type of spiral with a hollow, cylindrical core. The result? B.zero1, a convention-defying design with universal appeal.

In the 20 years since, the magnificent Roman jeweler has collaborated with two creative powerhouses, sculptor Anish Kapoor and late architect Zaha Hadid, on special editions, establishing B.zero1 as an indomitable design icon. Through spirals of various heights and the use of innovative materials like coloured marble and ceramic, B.zero1, true to its spirit, has continually reinvented itself.

To mark the milestone, Bvlgari unveiled the original, iconic 5-band ring available in yellow gold and solid white gold, like the original 1999 edition, and for the first time in rose gold. All four designs are engraved with “XX Anniversary” on their internal ferrule, marking them as collector’s items. Built into the very design of the lavish limited editions is B.zero1’s ethos: Be a rule-breaker, be daring, be unconventional, B.zero1.
