Description

Mario Buccellati was called "The Prince of Goldsmithing," with high praise in a country where precious metal work can be traced for centuries. This Buccellati diamond and mixed metals ring was made in Italy in the Contemporary Era, circa the 2010s, and is signed Buccellati, numbered, stamped, and hallmarked. It features diagonal striped bands of beautifully wrought intricate 18K yellow gold, alternating with 18K white gold set with round brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing an estimated total of 0.77 carats of F-G color and VS clarity.
The borders of the raised white gold portions are dotted with milgrain, or small grains of metal used to deliver an additional sparkle that complements the gemstones. Behind the diamonds, there is azuring in the metal. Azuring is a technique where shaped cutouts are hand-carved behind each stone to allow light in and make the diamonds shine. Such exquisite hand-wrought detail symbolizes the house and takes a jeweler numerous hours of quality to achieve.
Mario Buccellati (1891–1965), schooled in the techniques of the thousand-year heritage of craftsmanship and goldsmithing traditions in Italy, launched his eponymous jewelry house in 1919 in Milan. He quickly built a reputation for his richly embellished traforato, or finely pierced goldwork portrayed in this ring. As is typical of Buccellati pieces, including this one, the gemstones almost assume a supporting role, embellishing and elevating the intricate metalsmithing which takes center stage. The surface of Buccellati's creations often resembles luxurious fabric, achieved by piercing techniques to create a look of webbing, honeycomb, lace, or quilting. Every bit of surface is worked and finished, whether visible or not, to create stunning works of art worthy of true connoisseurs of traditional handmade Florentine metalworking techniques.
