Brozzetti will also maintain the role of representing the Maison in sector associations and in the partnership with Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana.

Capri bangles by Buccellati

In Buccellati‘s fine jewelry, bracelets occupy a special place. Now the Milanese maison which has become part of the Richemont group, launches a new edition of its Capri bangles, which are inspired by the Mediterranean colors of the Italian island located opposite Naples. There are six pieces in all, which use colored glazes to add the vivacity that characterizes Capri. The bracelets are unique pieces in the combination of stones and enamels and consequently have a high jewelery price, which starts around 200,000 euros.

The distribution is also exclusive: the Capri Bangles Special Edition can be purchased exclusively in the two Buccellati boutiques in Capri: the historic boutique on Via Camerelle, and at the brand new boutique inaugurated this year at the Hotel La Palma. Alternatively, it is necessary to contact the Maison through the website. Capri bracelets use the style that made the Italian brand famous. They are made of yellow and white gold, enamel, white and fancy diamonds, stones such as tourmalines or pink sapphires.

The Buccellati Mosaic

Italy preserves the ancient tradition of the art of mosaic. Examples are the great Byzantine mosaics found in Ravenna, but there are also many examples of compositions from the Roman era. All works that inspired the new Buccellati high jewelery collection. Predictably, the collection is called Mosaico. It is made up of over 50 pieces which, however, reflect the classic style of the Maison founded by Mario Buccellati at the beginning of the twentieth century. Now Buccellati, which is part of the Richemont group, sees creative director Andrea Buccellati at work.

White and yellow gold ring with brilliant cut diamonds and 2 carat emerald cut diamond

In short, the Mosaico collection does not abandon the embroideries and textures made up of gold threads typical of Buccellati and which have their origins in the tradition of Florentine goldsmithing. At the same time the jewels, especially the larger ones, are made up of elements, such as gems, which refer to the world of colored tesserae with which the mosaics are made. The jewelry suite includes jointed bracelets, gag necklaces, drop earrings and cocktail rings.
Collana in oro giallo e bianco con zaffiri
Necklace in yellow and white gold with sapphires

An example is the necklace composed of five cushion-cut scale settings in yellow gold and sapphires, alternating with drop-shaped settings in yellow gold with fancy diamonds, with elements in white gold and diamonds and modeled yellow gold wire, border in gold pavé white and yellow gold patterned wire. On the occasion of the new collection, the Maison presented Princess Talita von Fürstenberg as testimonial, who wore a parure from the Mosaico collection.

Gems and striped gold for Buccellati’s Macri Color collection

Renewing tradition, departing from tradition or forgetting tradition? The choice of Buccellati, an Italian brand that has passed under the insignia of the Richemont group, is the first. This does not mean that there is no shortage of novelties, starting with the distribution choices of the Maison. For example, the new Macri Color collection was presented with pieces available exclusively on the American market. In short, it is not a new stylistic idea, but simply a commercial strategy. Given this, the collection aims to combine the embroideries and gold engravings typical of the Milanese brand, with the colors of large gems.

The traditional iridescent effect of the gold surface remains, which is the result of the striped engraving work, but to this are added large amethysts, spessartite, milky aquamarine, moonstone, lavender jade. All with the addition of diamonds in a radial pattern, around the semi-precious stone in the center of rings, earrings or pendants for necklaces.

Ritorno al futuro con Buccellati Vintage

/




Buccellati nell’atmosfera couture delle sfilate parigini. La Maison milanese ha deciso di esporre alcuni pezzi inediti della collezione Vintage all’interno della boutique di rue Saint Honoré. L’evento coincide con la settimana della Haute Couture e rappresentano l’evoluzione stilistica di Buccellati, senza però perdere il suo stile caratteristico. I gioielli selezionati sono stati realizzati tra gli anni Quaranta e gli anni Novanta e rappresentano il top della produzione della Maison per le qualità artigianali con cui sono stati prodotti. La collezione Vintage, al pari di quelle heritage delle grandi firme della gioielleria, è il risultato di una valorizzazione del patrimonio creativo dell’azienda, che oggi fa parte del gruppo Richemont.

Bracciale Deep Light Blue, con un imponente foliage in oro giallo, inciso a segrinato, dove ogni foglia ha una venatura centrale in oro bianco e diamanti. La pietra centrale è una acquamarina carré di 74,25 carati, con 98 diamanti taglio brillante

L’idea di valorizzare il patrimonio di Buccellati si è tradotto in un lavoro di studio e ricerca, che ha portato all’archiviazione di oltre 20.000 disegni originali, 500 gessi e più di 6.000 fotografie. Da questo lavoro è nata la collezione Vintage. Ogni gioiello della collezione sarà custodito nel suo astuccio d’epoca (se esiste) oppure in un box appositamente studiato per riprodurre lo stile di quello originale. Il certificato di garanzia, inoltre, includerà un’immagine del prodotto attuale e copia del suo disegno originale.

The jewelers that close in Russia




The real drama is that of human lives lost in vain, of overwhelmed lives, of lives that will never be the same. But the war in Ukraine also causes a smaller, much smaller, but not irrelevant, drama related to jobs, in the West and in Russia, which will be lost to a stupid aggression. Both Russians and Westerners are dealing with the inevitable sanctions announced in time, before the invasion, which will have an impact on the accounts of companies, for example those of jewelry, as well as on the people who work there. The collapse of the ruble and the blocking of the credit card service, in fact, led many jewelry companies to suspend their business. Maybe they will close completely or reopen, if it all ends, but who knows when.

Boutique De Beers a Mosca

At the time of writing this short article, the last Western brand to close the boutique in Moscow was Swarovski, while Tiffany was among the first to lower the shutter, along with Vuitton. Others have already done so, others will follow. The list of Western Maisons that have opened a boutique in Moscow, St. Petersburg or other Russian cities is long. In Moscow, for example, they have a boutique Chopard, Van Cleef & Arpels, Akillis, Piaget, De Beers, H. Stern, Stephen Webster, Carrera y Carrera, Mauboussin, Mont-Blanc, Dior, Chaumet, Pandora, Frey Wille, Cartier , Trollbeads, Vuitton, Thomas Sabo, Bulgari, Pomellato, Adamas, Damiani, Buccellati. Other brands, such as Pasquale Bruni or Alcozer, are distributed in non-owned jewelers, or in airport duty free shops.

According to an analysis concerning Italian jewelery conducted by ICE (the state body for exports) in general, the Russian buyer is oriented towards medium or medium-high level jewelery. Also according to the analysis, the daily use of rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces, especially in the capital and large cities, is now seen as a form of accessory to one’s image, not necessarily combined with luxury clothing or for events special. The favorite items of Russian women are rings, chains and earrings; men prefer chains and bracelets, while brooches and necklaces are bought by a minority of the female population, while typically male jewelry such as cufflinks and tie pins are in low demand. In recent years, however, silver jewelery has been more successful than gold, due to the unfavorable ruble-euro exchange rate. Italy (2019 data) exports about 77 million jewels to Russia, about 22 million France, the United States 21 million and the United Kingdom 23 million. However, the one who exports the most to Russia is China with over 88 million.

Valentine’s Day in Hawaii with Buccellati




Valentine’s Day in Hawaii. It is a journey that can be tackled even without moving from home or, better, by simply moving to a jewelry store. The magic is signed by Buccellati, who created the new Hawaii Diamond Hearts collection for the feast of lovers. It is a line that the Milanese Maison has created for almost a century, in the 1930s, and is inspired by Hawaiian flower garlands. Flowers and love, in fact, are a close-knit couple.

Orecchini composti da piccoli cerchi di filo ritorto in oro giallo e diamanti

The Hawaii Diamond Hearts line by Buccellati is made up of small circles of twisted wire in yellow gold. The circles are lightly chained together, to form a waterfall in which interspersed hearts in white gold and diamonds, the classic icon of love, can be recognized. The Hawaii Diamond Hearts line comes in a necklace, pendant earrings and bracelet and is accompanied by a launch campaign on digital channels starring Charlie Weiss, a German model already in the spotlight for her beauty. The campaign concept revolves around red, the color of love and passion, with shots and videos that give life to a subtle and refined game of seduction interpreted with a young and fresh attitude.

Eleuteri, vintage jewelry from Rome to New York





Vintage jewelry signed by prestigious Maison: it is Eleuteri’s specialty, which has now also opened a showcase on Madison Avenue, in New York ♦ ︎
There is Bulgari, there is Chaumet, there is Faraone. And then there are Cartier, David Web, Buccellati … All together. But it is not a party for jewelers: the great Maison are in the Eleuteri boutique, one of the great jewelers of Rome specializing in special jewels. Period pieces, more or less antique, but all of great quality. Eleuteri has always been in via Condotti, the luxury shopping street in the capital, Milano, Venezia, Cortina and Porto Cervo..

But Carlo Eleuteri and his son Wagner have also opened a showcase in New York, in central Madison Avenue. A landing that was underlined by a long article in the New York Times. It is a strategic choice. It is no coincidence that Wagner Eleuteri holds a degree from the London School of Economics. The jewelry company is in the fourth generation: the history of Eleuteri began, in fact, in 1894, even if with a candied shop. The transformation into jewelry, however, took place in 1963, with Pietro Eleuteri, a collector passionate about ancient art, who opened an antique shop. From antiques to ancient jewels the passage is short. So much so that now the Roman Maison has accumulated a collection of pieces of considerable value and beauty that, at the moment, are sought above all by the rich tourists who go shopping in Via Condotti. And now also in Manhattan.

Beatrice Borromeo in black and white for Buccellati




Beatrice Borromeo’s face will continue to wear Buccellati’s jewels for a long time to come. The journalist and documentary director, descendant of one of the noble families with the longest history (among her ancestors there is also a saint), since 2015 she has been married to Pierre Casiraghi, son of Princess Caroline of Monaco, with whom she had two sons.

In addition, for a couple of years, Beatrice Borromeo has become the face of the communication campaigns of the Italian jewelry brand that is now part of the Richemont group. The new images were taken by Josh Olins, a London-based photographer based in New York and a specialist in portraying the world of fashion. The three photos of the advertising campaign have one characteristic: they are in black and white. An unusual choice in the world of jewelry, which often enhances the colors of gold and precious stones. The images of Beatrice Borromeo, on the other hand, choose the path of author photography.

Buccellati flagship store in Ginza (Tokyo)




The Ginza district of Tokyo is a paradise of luxury. Here, in Namiki-dori Street, a historic street for the most exclusive flagship stores of the main international brands, Buccellati has opened a new boutique. The Japanese flagship store opens after about 50 years of Buccellati presence in Japan, with corners in the best department stores and through multi-brand retailers. The Ginza boutique is on two floors and has an imposing facade, characterized by the iconic windows of the brand, topped by a decoration on glass that represents the logo of the Maison.

The architectural concept adopted by the Milanese Maison, which passed under the signs of the Swiss Richemont group, aligns with the atmosphere of an extreme luxury shopping: a large staircase leads to the second floor, enriched by a coral counter and a VIP room for private sales. Buccellati has been present in Japan since 1972, when it teamed up with Wako to be able to exhibit its creations in the exclusive store in the heart of Giza.
The collaboration with Wako will continue, as will the various shop-in-shops and directly managed corners in Takashimaya Nihonbashi and Osaka, Mitsukoshi Nagoya and soon Hankyu Osaka, together with the Isetan Shinjuku pop-up store.

Buccellati in the garden of luxury

///




Take high jewelery, add some nature, season everything with a refined setting and a face with noble ancestry: this is the recipe for the new collection Il giardino di Buccellati. The Milanese Maison, which now orbits in the Richemont group, presented its high-end jewels on the occasion of the Parisian haute couture week. And, given the particular location, he modulated his embroidered geometries through the lenses of the Impressionist painters, who have often reinterpreted the motif of flowers.

Parure Sadar
Parure Sadar

Not only that: for the launch of the collection, photographer Josh Olins recreated a magical atmosphere set on Lake Como, where Beatrice Borromeo, testimonial of the Maison, and Lucrezia Buccellati, now the fourth generation of designers, were photographed with some of the creations. As mentioned, Buccellati’s Il Giardino collection takes inspiration from the shapes of nature through the glasses of painting.

The inspiration was very strong. Once again I wanted to create a collection of great impact by recalling the colors of nature in the canvases of Impressionist painters. With these stones it was easy to sublimate the color combinations and create an evocative and surprising garden. The our.

The historic rhombuses of Buccellati come back

///




A classic collection with a new face, that of the Buccellati brand ambassador, Beatrice Borromeo. The occasion is not only the communication campaign of the Italian brand, which is now part of the Richemont group stable, but also the approach of Mother’s Day. But the jewels of the Milanese Maison are, by definition, characterized by a style that is not linked to a single event or to a momentary fashion.

As evidenced by the Rombi (rhombuses) collection, which preserves the stylistic elements that make a Buccellati jewel immediately recognizable, starting with the compositions marked by geometric shapes. Starting with that of the rhombus, a Renaissance-inspired geometry, which is found in the decorations and details of the Florentine architecture of the time. A job that requires precision and patience: in Buccellati’s jewels the embroidery around the geometric figure of the rhombus is obtained through a meticulous fretwork performed with hand tools, with white and yellow gold dotted with brilliant-cut diamonds. The result is jewels with a precious flavor with the charm of history.

Buccellati’s butterflies


x



Buccellati offers its butterfly-shaped brooches dedicated to women.

According to the scientific definition, the butterfly is an insect that belongs to the order of Lepidoptera. Not a very romantic definition. Yet butterflies have always played a special role for poets and painters, but also for jewelers, who consider these little birds as a source of inspiration. And in view of Women’s Day, a day that in many countries is dedicated to the world of women (8 March), Buccellati offers its butterfly-shaped brooches. They are not generic jewels with the shape of the colored moth. Some of these butterfly brooches were made with certain varieties of the species in mind.

There is, for example, the monarch butterfly, one of the most widespread species, which is proposed with its scientific name, that is, Danaus brooch. It is made of yellow gold, which contrasts with the white color of the central baroque pearl and is embellished with white diamonds. Or the Polissena brooch, a butterfly that to discourage predators dresses in dazzling colors: white, yellow and pink of gold, the red of the four oval-cut rubies, the glitter of the yellow diamonds that come from the wings, while the central baroque pearl forms its body.

Passion and Mont Blanc in the new Buccellati high jewelery

/




The passion of the Buccellati Maison consists in proposing a style that is renewed over time, but is always faithful to its origins. So it is perhaps not surprising that one of the pieces that attracted the most attention in the new high jewelery collection presented during Paris Couture Week 2021 is called Passion. It is a ring in white and yellow gold, with a 10.72 carat rubellite and diamonds. In the same collection, another creation that sparked the imagination is, instead, the Polvere di Luna set, which includes a necklace combined with light pendants.

The style is the unmistakable one of the Maison founded by Mario Buccellati a little over a century ago and now directed from the creative point of view by Andrea Buccellati (the property is instead of the Richemont group). Another piece in full Buccellati-style is the Mont Blanc ring, which replaces the snow on the summit with a pearl that rises from a zigzag design surrounding the yellow gold bezel. It goes without saying that the classic embroidery of bracelets, earrings and necklaces is not lacking. On the other hand, it is the Maison’s factory stamp.

(Italiano) I tanti cuori di Buccellati

What is the best place for a heart? The answer is obvious: at the chest. And this is evident even if it is a jewel. Even the historic Buccellati fashion house thinks so and proposes, in view of Valentine’s Day (but not only), a series of pendants with the classic geometry of the muscle most linked to the concept of love. These are pendants made with designs and processing and engraving techniques typical of the Maison that is now part of the Richemont group.

Buccellati hearts are added to the various lines of the Icona collection, and thus offer a greater choice in the Ghirlanda line (in white gold, with or without central heart-cut diamond), Rombi (in yellow and white gold with diamonds), Ramage ( in white gold or with a combination of white and yellow gold and, optionally, brilliant or pink cut diamonds) and Macri (white gold, yellow gold or pink gold).

Finally, there is Tulle: a complex and long handmade process that allows you to obtain a texture very similar to a lace. From the center of the pendant, embellished with diamonds, delicate rays start with hours of manual work in search of the right angle to collect the light and diffuse it. A fine burin modeling surrounds the radial tulle without imprisoning it, but rather enriching it. For all the pendants in the collection, the style is unmistakably Buccellati: contrasts in the color of gold, the light reflected on the engraving, the lightness and elegance of the lace work.

The leaves on Buccellati’s wrist

//




In autumn the leaves do not always fall. Buccellati, for example, uses silver to create leaves that will never fall. The series of leaf-shaped bracelets proposed by the Maison famous for its high jewelry is called Mario Leaf, and is named after the founder of the company. The leaves designed and produced by Mario Buccellati were proposed for the first time in the 1930s and are inspired by a botany book that was recommended to him by the poet Gabriele d’Annunzio in a letter in 1929.

The four leaves that make up the collection are all made of 925 silver, embossed or hammered by hand by master silversmiths. Each of the four bracelets is dedicated to a leaf type, which also takes on a symbolic meaning, with concepts such as growth, fertility and renewal. The olive leaf, for example, inspires a bracelet that symbolizes regeneration and peace.

The apple tree leaf is linked to the meaning of the fruit, which suggests the totality of heaven and earth, but also a symbol of knowledge. According to tradition, the medlar was the plant for the virtuous woman, but also a message of welcome and hospitality for foreigners. Finally, the tomato is a message of abundance and fruitfulness, a symbol of nourishment and strength.
