The historic high jewelery and silverware Maison Buccellati presents the most iconic jewels of the exhibition, inaugurated in Venice on 18 April, ‘The Prince of Goldsmiths. Buccellati Rediscovering the Classics’ in the French capital during Haûte Couture.

The selection of jewels for this special occasion offers the opportunity to retrace the highlights of the exhibition celebrating the centenary history of the Maison.

The precious Buccellati Venezia Butterfly, designed by Andrea Buccellati and his daughter Lucrezia, presented in Venice is accompanied by two other creations by Gianmaria Buccellati (one of these unpublished) to bring back on stage the theme of the Generations well represented in Venice in the “The Buccellati” room Generations”. Always a symbol of the Maison and of the generations of the family who guided its creative direction, the butterfly embodies the evolution and soul of Buccellati, representing his phases in different forms.

The precious textures of the historic silver and yellow gold cosmetic bag with blue and pink sapphires and the precious powder compacts tell of the distinctive elegance of the twentieth century, exemplified in “Manmade Wonders”. These “galantries” illuminated the homes and wardrobes of gentlewomen and spread, starting from the 18th century, from Italy to all European courts. Inspired by Italian arts, by the geometric decorative elements that adorned Renaissance architecture and by the preciousness of brocade fabrics, Mario Buccellati first and Gianmaria Buccellati then tried their hand at creating small masterpieces, created with meticulous care, inimitable skill and tireless patience.

“The classics offer the pleasure of rediscovery, evoking timeless worlds of elegance, art and nature. Retracing them means reinterpreting age-old traditions and forms with an ever-present look.” Said Andrea Buccellati, Creative Director and Honorary President of the Maison.

To commemorate the last room of the Venetian exhibition “The Gallery of Icons”, Buccellati brings back to Paris some of the great “classics” of the generations of the Buccellati family.

The undisputed protagonists are the renowned techniques of the Maison such as lace and chaining. Represented by the silver tiara from the 1920s created by Mario Buccellati, or by the iconic flexible bracelet in yellow, white gold and diamonds designed by his son Gianmaria. The engraving, perfectly narrated by the two yellow and white gold bracelets designed by Andrea Buccellati; and the complex but equally impactful tulle technique, embodied by the 1920s bracelet designed by Mario Buccellati, close the narrative circle that perfectly describes the Maison’s savoir faire.

In addition to the techniques that have made Buccellati creations unique throughout the world, the Maison is pleased to introduce new icons of timeless high jewellery, including new variations of Cocktail rings and earrings, precious brooches that recall the world of Nature, which has always source of inspiration for the Maison, or the famous Ombilical necklaces, also defined as “cheerful” due to the bright colors of the semi-precious stones by the poet Gabriele d’Annunzio, who commissioned them from the founder Mario Buccellati for his muses.
