The Buccellati brand dates back to 1919 when Mario Buccellati opened his first jewellery boutique in Milan. Having acquired years of experience working for renowned jeweller Beltrami & Besnati, the brand became reputable for its quality pieces. Gianmaria Buccellati, the second generation of the brand, followed in his father’s footsteps in becoming a master goldsmith himself and successfully established his own brand of jewellery in 1971 after his father’s death. He inherited his father’s distinctive style of using texture-engraving, a technique that transforms gold and silver into wonderful creations with a tactile feel similar to tulle and damask.
