The Multiverse of Buccellati Opera High Jewellery Collections


Opera Tulle is a collection by Buccellati that combines the tradition of ancient goldsmithing techniques with the originality and beauty of its design. The collection includes rings, sautoirs, flexible bracelets, pendant and button earrings, all featuring the radial tulle layer, a hallmark of most precious Buccellati creations. The logo element is set with semi-precious stones, coloured enamels, or left unset to exalt the transparency and lightness of the tulle workmanship.

Embellishing dates back to the goldsmithing tradition of the Greeks and Romans, but it developed significantly during Byzantine art. Buccellati revives the traditions of enamelling and uses them to create a new decorative element full of charm and elegance. Gold is covered with a homogenous layer of enamel, successively cooked and fixed to the metal surface. The tulle decoration, one of Buccellati’s signatures, enshrines coloured enamel and stones and brings an iconic touch.

Truly, it is a collection with a great personality and an unmistakable style, reflecting the prestige, elegance, and femininity typical of each Buccellati piece, making the brand synonymous with style and timeless beauty worldwide.


Next, in keeping with the Maison’s purest style, Buccellati designed the Opera Maxi line, which is a magnified version of the logo element paired with the customary tulle workmanship.

It makes a bold statement without sacrificing discretion or elegance. A central diamond is an option, as well as borders with or without diamonds.


The Galileo pendant, dedicated to Galileo Galilei, is a symbol of his genius and creativity, a key figure in the scientific revolution. It creates movement like stars in the cosmos, vibrating and rotating with great plasticity. The pendant is composed of concentric logo elements in alternating gold colours, rotating along an axis to create volume. Available in two versions with or without diamonds, the pendant confirms traits of great personality and unmistakable style, typical characteristics of the Buccellati Maison.
