Classy, elegant, timeless – such is the fine jewellery from Buccellati, a century-old high-end jewellery brand from Italy. The pieces stand out with the use of rare stones mixed with white and yellow gold, all delicately carved like laces.

So, when you wear a piece from Buccellati, you’re, essentially, wearing a piece of history.
Buccellati has several boutiques in Hong Kong.
