The original owner of the two stunning Buccellati cocktail rings in our Signature Fall Auction
purchased them in the 1970s from the Buccellati store on Fifth Avenue in New York. Both rings showcase the signature Buccellati traforato
goldwork technique, in which gold is pierced and engraved to resemble lace or fabric. The rings themselves are ornate, which made a dramatic counterpoint to the understated style of their owner. She was not one to follow trends, but at the same time was keen to keep abreast of what was new. She collected carefully, always with an eye for lasting style. Buccellati, with its long tenure as a top jewelry house, and designs that looked to their own history for inspiration, made a natural fit.
