Buccellati has long been known for their exquisitely detailed gold and silver work. A family business with traditions rooted in the 18th century, the company started in earnest when Mario Buccellati, then an apprentice at the prestigious Beltrami & Beltrami jewelry shop, took over the firm in 1919 and renamed it Buccellati.
Mario first exhibited his wares in the 1920 Exposition in Madrid, where his booth was completely sold out. Soon after, he was invited back for a solo show, and Spanish aristocrats, including the royal family, became ardent supporters and lifelong clients. After nearly a century in business, Buccellati’s creations have been exhibited at the Smithsonian and joined the Pope’s private collections in the Vatican.
Although Buccellati is well known on the red carpet for its jewels, it’s actually the light-as-air engraving on the metal pieces that sets the company apart. Buccellati pieces are often covered with multiple engravings and piercings, so in the hands of its artisans, metal often resembles fine fabrics like linen, tulle, or lace. This distinctive Buccellati technique, practiced in the company’s workshops around Milan, Florence, and Venice, has allowed Buccellati to remain one of the world’s foremost gold and silversmiths.
For the home, Buccellati has created an exquisite line of sterling silver flatware, frames, and dishes.
The Buccellati flatware collection of 14 patterns represents the beauty and excellence of fine craftsmanship. Timeless and elegant, the designs span many centuries from the classic to the contemporary, giving the collection versatility suited to today’s eclectic lifestyles. The weight and balance of each piece of flatware make it a pleasure to use, while the many serving pieces in each pattern add sophistication to the table. All Buccellati flatware is crafted from sterling silver.
