"I have observed Byzantine mosaics with their golden backgrounds, their never predictable geometric decorations, their stylisation, their intense colours and that special light that permeates the surface and abstracts it. It is a continuous magic that gave me the desire to take my grandfather's and my father's creative inspiration and bring it into a collection of unique high jewellery objects" - Andrea Buccellati

Tens of one-of-a-kind creations played out in unexpected and lively colours, on geometric elements of great rigour and elegance, with an aristocratic design that touches peaks of profound artisticness.

MOSAICO CUFF BRACELET
White gold cuff bracelet, "rigato" engraved, with a central row of intersecting rhomboidal and garland elements. Emeralds and fancy diamonds are set in yellow gold, while white diamonds are set in white gold.
Mosaico' brings us back to the Byzantine mosaics that developed between 400 and 568 A.D., and that were the primary inspiration for this collection. Just think of the dome of the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, in Ravenna, covered with a delicate starry sky, in a triumph of blue and gold reminiscent of an enamelled jewel. Or the mosaics of various churches whose friezes imitate pearls and precious stones, with weaves and indentations worthy of a jewel.
Necklace composed of seven cushion-cut scaled bezels in yellow gold and sapphires, alternating with drop-shaped bezels in yellow gold set with fancy diamonds. White gold and diamond elements and yellow gold modelled thread. White gold pavé border and yellow gold modeled thread.
