Buccellati New Opera Collection of Jewellery

Buccellati has extended its range with the new Opera collection of jewellery, whose elegant but refreshingly young design possesses all the house’s distinctive characteristics and traditions.

Opera is inspired by Italian Renaissance culture: the ideal of absolute symmetry as expressed by the flower, which is both its symbol and a recurring motif, and the typical repetition of a decorative motif to create pleasing visual effects. This makes Opera a work of art, like the rest of Buccellati’s production, whose origins can be found in the Renaissance masterpieces scattered all over Italy.

The collection’s floral motif is inspired by the house’s logo, which is an explicit reference to the dome of the church of San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane in Rome, viewed from below, but also to the rose window above the main entrance of Roccolo Castle in Busca, and the decorations on top of the columns of the Doge’s Palace in Venice. It thus draws on the artistic styles that are Buccellati’s greatest source of inspiration, from Renaissance to Venetian Gothic, with a nod to Neo-Medieval. Each decorative motif encapsulates a series of touching historical references, which make it a unique and unforgettable work of art.
The collection’s central motif is inspired by the plan of the great opera houses, and its very name, Opera, evokes the arias of famous works by renowned Italian composers, like Giuseppe Verdi, Gioachino Rossini, Gaetano Donizetti, Ruggero Leoncavallo and Vincenzo Bellini. The connection with La Scala opera house in Milan is immediately evident. Buccellati was founded in the same city in 1919, where it opened its first boutique and has grown over the course of almost a century.

Today the city is still home to its artisanal production, conducted with the aid of hundreds of master jewellers specializing in engraving and setting precious stones.
Characterized by sinuous, fine lines and harmonious forms, with eye-catching decorative effects formed by alternating solids and voids, the collection is comprised of a wide range of pieces: bracelets, necklaces and chokers, rings, and earrings. The dimensions of the pieces are extremely variable and they are available in many combinations of different shades of gold, allowing them to satisfy all kinds of special requests.

Opera is a collection with great personality and an unmistakable style, which faithfully reflects the prestige, elegance and femininity typical of each Buccellati piece that have made the brand synonymous with style and timeless beauty throughout the world.
