While the Roman jeweller may be best known for its sumptuous and vividly colourful rocks, the B.Zero1 collection occupies a special niche with its focus on industrial design, as it originally took inspiration from the sinuous architecture of the Colosseum in Rome when the collection first launched in 1999.
The range has since been a popular mainstay at Bvlgari, with numerous interpretations and updates – like last year’s B.Zero1 Rock edition, which saw the refreshing addition of punk-ish geometrical studs.
This B.Zero1 Rock 18K white gold necklace emphasises the newly enhanced design of the chain.
That outing was evidently well-received, as the maison is expanding the range. This year, Bvlgari is doubling down on its industrial roots – the new collection spotlights a component that usually plays second fiddle: the necklace’s chain as seen on Bvlgari ambassador Lisa Manoban of Blackpink.
Take for example the 18K white gold necklace above. Featuring a total of 7.20 carats worth of diamonds, the links on the chain sport a distinctively geometric and original design that’s meant to be a reference to the architecture of the classic B.Zero1 ring.
Ditto for its 18K yellow gold counterpart.
Likewise, the chain on the 18K yellow gold counterpart here similarly sports an Art Deco-ish structured design, each link reportedly comprising three hand-set and assembled elements.
Viewed through such lens, the B.Zero1 necklace can be styled three ways: with or without the pendant (we’re sure you’ll agree that the chain very much holds its own), and lastly, with the option of an additional thin 18K white gold chain that’s sold separately.
