BUCCELLATI Exemplifying An Unparalleled Craftsmanship


BUCCELATI - The haute jewellery house has returned to Hong Kong for an important cultural event, hosting the private viewings alongside to reconfirm its presence among Hong Kong’s jewellery enthusiasts. The atelier was established in 1919 by Mario Buccellati, who was captivated by the craft of jewellery and the abundance of precious stones the world had to offer. 


With a natural talent for drawing and a thirst for knowledge, Mario created jewellery and silver objects that conjured up images of the Renaissance era, and thus instilled the historical heritage of Italy into his works of art.


Alongside the brand’s distinctive texture engraving techniques used to resemble the finest of fabrics, it was this timeless, ethereal style that enabled each Buccellati masterpiece to transcend through time, and facilitated the jewellery house in becoming a leading brand in the realm of luxury jewellery.


Joining this series of illustrious events was President and Creative Director, Andrea Buccellati, and Communication Director, Maria Cristina Buccellati, members of the family’s third generation who continue to uphold the long-standing traditions and artisanship of the renowned namesake.


Among the key collection exhibited at the private viewing was an extensive selection of Buccellati’s silver creations, ranging from intricately crafted silver centerpieces and bowls to lifelike animal figurines.


Also featured was the Ducale bracelet designed by Gianmaria Buccellati: inspired by the Doge’s Palace in Venice, this exemplifies the art of gold weaving through Buccellati’s typical tulle workmanship.


However, the undisputed star of the occasion was indeed the Bartolomeo necklace. Crafted with Buccellati’s signature honeycomb technique, the statement piece boasted a cascade of diamonds held in white gold settings, and embodied an impressively elegant and refined design.
