    Buccellati: The Buccellati family has been perfecting the art of goldsmithing since the 1750s. Mario Buccellati (1891-1965) received his goldsmith training while an apprentice at the firm Beltrami e Besnati near La Scala, in Milan. By 1919, he took control of the business, gave it his name and focused on the art of engraving, mainly gold. His reputation for meticulous texturing of metals through detailed hand engraving turned metal into silk, brocade, tulle or the finest honeycomb lace. Buccellati’s Renaissance-inspired designs and distinctive style attracted an elite clientele. Over the years, Buccellati made jewelry for the royal families of Italy, Spain and Egypt, as well as Pope Pius XI and Pope Pius XII, among others. The family firm continues today with a passion for entirely hand-made one-of-a-kind jewels, featuring texture-engraved gold under the leadership of Gianmaria and Andrea Buccellati. Their unique artistry can be enjoyed in exclusive boutiques around the world.
