High jewellery house Buccellati has launched a new collection showcasing its exquisite goldsmith artistry, ornamented with precious diamonds and colourful gemstones.
Named “One of a Kind”, the collection is handcrafted by the brand’s skilled Italian artisans and with ancient goldsmith techniques and tools. The pieces feature the Rigato engraving technique – parallel lines are cut into the metal surfaces to produce a shiny and silky effect – and the brand’s iconic honeycomb technique, which requires artisans to pierce tiny small holes in the metal to create a dazzling and airy effect.
Highlighted pieces include a cuff bracelet with 21 rose-cut diamonds, 64 round brilliant-cut diamonds and woven lace openwork on yellow and white gold; and a band ring set in the brand’s iconic honeycomb patterned white gold and decorated with a 1.54ct aquamarine and 26 round brilliant-cut diamonds.
Another eye-catching piece is a white and yellow gold cocktail ring featuring a 18.53ct garnet, 96 round brilliant-cut diamonds and 64 diamonds.
First established in Milan by Mario Buccellati – dubbed “The Prince of Goldsmiths” by Italian writer Garbriele D’Annunzio – in 1919, the jewellery house is known for its rich textural quality by reviving traditional engraving techniques and for its Italian Renaissance-inspired designs.
