The two design legends that are Zaha Hadid and Bulgari’s iconic B.Zero1 ring have come together in a bold new collaboration that fuses Hadid’s signature undulating lines, which have earned her the title “Queen of the Curve”, with Bulgari’s most famous style.

When Bulgari first introduced the B.Zero1 ring in 1999, it changed standards in jewellery design forever. Up until that point, women’s rings had tended to feature thin bands and delicate settings. Bulgari ushered in a new look with a bold and androgynous new shape.

The ring was inspired by the Colosseum in Rome, Emperor Vespasian’s epic architectural power statement. It was created for everyday wear and featured a broad band caught between two flat rings engraved with Bulgari’s double-logo. It was unconventional and undeniably chic – and so it remains today.

Hadid’s interpretation of the B.Zero.1 ring sees the original solid band replaced with the architect’s trademark waves, with openwork jewellery delivering a sense of lightness and diamonds set in the sinuous lines.

The rings are available as a four-band ring in rose gold or as a three-band version in white gold or rose gold. There’s also a stunning rose-gold pendant in the seriously tempting new collection.

Prices start from £1,580.
