The "Grand Collier Printemps" by BUCCELLATI

This should be one of the highlights of the next Christie's auction in Geneva. It is a modern piece but so unique and special that it is quite a surprise to find it featured in an auction. The "Grand Collier Printemps" is signed by Gianmaria Buccellati and it was made in 1994. It displays a series of textured gold leaves in three colours of classic greek inspiration and six flower heads set with diamonds. The pieces can be detached and rearranged as a short necklace, a pair of earrings and a brooch.
