in 1919, in the heart of Milan, near the storied La Scala Theatre, Mario Buccellati—hailed The Prince of Goldsmiths—established a jewellery house that would become synonymous with sophistication and the revival of Italian goldsmith artistry. It didn’t take long before the brand Buccellati set a new standard for luxury jewellery, as it gained distinction for its intricate designs that echo the splendour of the Renaissance period.
Buccellati’s journey through time is a testament to the enduring allure of artistry and dedication to the traditions of Italian goldsmithing. Each creation is a masterpiece, meticulously crafted by skilled artisans, who employ techniques from the Renaissance passed down from one generation to the next. The house’s unique aesthetic is defined by Tulle craftsmanship—intricate lace-like patterns, painstaking engravings, and an unwavering commitment to craftsmanship.
As this romantic season calls for the gift of tokens that are both profound and precious, let the Opera Tulle and Macri collections speak the multifaceted language of love with their timeless elegance. More than just jewellery, each piece is a pledge of affection, all crafted with the same passion with which one loves.
