“Buccellati Cut” diamonds were introduced during Haute Couture Week in Paris and are the result of a collaboration between the house and highly skilled diamond cutters. The Gemological Institute of America has issued each diamond a certificate that has defined this new trademark cut.

Finally, the Vintage Collection exhibition highlights unique pieces from Mario, Gianmaria and Andrea Buccellati’s personal collections. The archive explains the inspiration and creation of each piece, which will be supplied in restored boxes or special replicas.

Buccellati was founded in 1919 by Mario Buccellati. The jewelry house uses tradition Renaissance-era techniques to create jewelry designs that mimic the appearance of fabrics in precious metal.

The 100-year-old brand has been majority owned by Chinese group Gangsu Gangtai Holding since 2017, when the investment firm took an 85 percent stake in Buccellati Holding Italia. Swiss luxury group Richemont has acquired 100 percent of Buccellati Holding in a transaction closed Sept. 26, bringing the brand into its jewelry division that also includes Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels (see story).
