The legacy of Buccellati jewelry exemplifies some of Court & Covet’s most cherished values. Buccellati is a family enterprise—since the company’s founding in 1919, nearly every item in the Buccellati catalog has been designed by a member of the immediate family.
Remarkably, the Buccellati name is distinguished even within the elite world of Italian jewelers. They were even the first Italian jeweler to have a location on New York City’s famed Fifth Avenue.
Forbes Magazine itself has noted that “Milanese locals know Buccellati as the country's most exclusive luxury jewelry brand - a great feat in Italy as the country is so known for high-end design.” This renown is in keeping with the Buccellati dynasty’s early days, when founder Mario Buccellati was known as the Prince of Goldsmiths.
Not only was he a master of his craft, but he was also an innovator who moved the entire art of jewelry design into a new realm. Buccellati was the first jeweler to experiment with and refine the technique of texture-engraving, which gave his pieces a distinctive feeling similar to silk, linen, or even lace.
