Our day around town in the Bulgari B.Zero1 Collection
Take a shine
The brand's iconic range of jewellery makes the perfect pieces for both work and play
Each season, Bulgari never fails to captivate us with its show-stopping jewellery collections, and for Spring/Summer 2018 it's no different. Its signature Serpenti and B.Zero1 lines are given a breath of new life, with fresh iterations introduced. First up: the new version of the Serpenti range now features piercing emerald eyes on all its pieces, from bracelets, rings, pendants and earrings—including the new Tubolare necklace, with snake scales that are neatly nestled into one another, giving off that lifelike allure. If there's one way to charm our hearts, these jewellery will be it. Aside from that, the Serpenti Viper rings and bracelets now comes in thinner and sleeker options—perfect whether it's worn on its own or piled up for a statement-making finish.

Our favourite of the lot? The B.Zero1 collection that make accessorising for any occasion an easy feat. Inspired by Rome's Colosseum, from its first introduction in 1999 and the beautiful Zaha Hadid recreation to this Spring 2018's pieces, the B.Zero1 spirals are definitely the hallmark of the collection. This season's Labyrinth ring is a modern take, with architectural spirals of white and rose gold beautifully morph into one another. Great for layering yet eye-catching on its own, these baubles make the perfect day to night jewellery, and day to night we did.
For a brunch meeting:
What better way to accessorise for work than with jewellery that'll pop oh-so-beautifully against a plain blazer? For a work meeting, I decided to mix things up with four different rose gold jewellery, complete with a Serpenti Forever bag in a studded Pop Heart motif that radiates that slight cute factor. I especially love how the metallic hues complemented the café décor—from the pops of brown hue on the couch to my morning cuppa (tea for me, please).

Confident. Bold. Unapologetic.
These are what the Bulgari woman is all about.
For a night out:
Tune up the style ante (and the heat) for a night out in an eye-catching outfit—without forgetting to adorn your ensemble with jewels that'll seal your party look. Instead of wearing the earrings separately, I donned both hoop earrings in one ear to maximise its stylish factor. Rings-wise, I stacked two pink gold rings—one with four bands and one with pavé diamonds to give my fingers that extra shine. I mean, how good do they look against a glass of whiskey cocktail? The Serpenti Forever bag in the metallic indigo topaz hue brings that jolt of energy to the overall look.
