The story of the legendary in the jewelry world name Buccellati has its roots in the distant middle of the eighteenth century. Contardo Buccellati was the owner of the jewelry store in Milan. In 1919, his son Mario, having worked as an apprentice at the parents’ shop for six years, he opened his own business – and that was the foundation for an outstanding style of Buccellati, such as we know it today. Jewelry and silverware was Favorited by the “rich and famous” in Rome and Florence; then gained popularity throughout Europe. After the Second World War, a jeweler in addition to the already existing Italian boutique opened stores in New York and Palm Beach; and finally, it was time to worldwide fame. Among the clients of Mario Buccellati were not only trendsetters, artists and poets, but the whole royal houses of Italy, Belgium, Spain, Egypt and even the Vatican!

Without detracting from the family tradition, Mario taught jewelry craftsmanship five sons. After their father died in 1965, four of them began to work together, but four years later, their paths parted ways. The most talented descendant of the famous jeweler named Jeanmarie managed not only to maintain, continue his parent business, but also successfully develop it: he conducted a large-scale advertising company, opened stores in all the capitals of the world and engaged in the development and manufacture his own jewelry.
