“Blossoms”

 

A name that takes us to the mid-eighteenth century, when Contardo Buccellati, the most important goldsmith in the Lombard region, opened his store in Via degli Orafi in Milan.

The bracelet featured here is made of solid silver. Embossed foliage decorations enhance its appearance. A piece internally carved rests prominently on its velvet base adorning the Buccellati store windows on Place Vendôme in Paris.
