A BUCCELATTI sapphire bangle

Buccelatti today continues being a family business run by the son of the founder. The tradition, the design and the quality of craftsmanship remains intact. The pieces have a unique "texture-engraved" style that sets them apart from any other just at first glance. Their hallmarks are one of the oldest in Milan and can be traced back to the 18th century. 

This bangle is a very fine example of one of the best known Buccelatti designs. The diamond lace setting around the sapphires is extremely delicate. It will be sold at the Magnificent Jewels Sotheby's auction in New York on December 9th.
