Footnotes

  • Mario Buccellati, born in 1881, was the founder of one of Italy's greatest jewellers and owed his fame to his textured gold jewellery and unique silver objects. Buccellati's handmade jewellery is immediately recognisable as he mixes metal and several engraving techniques, such as rigato, telato, segrinato, ornato and modellato. His work was widely acclaimed at the 1920 Exposition in Madrid where his entire collection sold.
