The butterfly also represents Buccellati’s stylistic evolution. Also on display are the precious textures of the historic silver and yellow gold cosmetic bag with blue and pink sapphires and the compacts that bear witness to the distinctive elegance of the twentieth century, exemplified in Manmade Wonders. These gallantries 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.

Buccellati has brought back to Paris some of the great classics of the generations of the Buccellati family, made with refined techniques such as lace and chaining. For example, the silver tiara from the 1920s made by Mario Buccellati, or 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.
