As part of their ongoing centenary celebrations, Buccellati unveiled newer pieces in their ‘Opera’ high jewellery collections that plays on the brand’s logo while incorporating rubies, tourmalines, and diamonds amidst Buccellati’s iconic gold techniques. Also on display were newer creations showcasing their tulle workmanship, subtly hinting at the return of yellow gold.
Apart from use of exceptional gemstones and skilled craftsmanship, the best aspect of most of these jewels was the newly introduced ‘Buccellati Cut’ diamond, a realization of Andrea Buccellati’s drawing to honour the family brand’s anniversary. Shaped like an elongated four petal flower, the cut has 57 perfectly mirrored facets that fit like a missing puzzle piece.
The birth of this new cut came with years of research and study, all in collaboration with Antwerp-based Taché Diamonds. Exuding romance and elegance with its very presence, the Buccellati cut is set with four elongated curved prongs, each literally holding one of the four petals of the flower.
