Also called the ‘tulle’ technique, this workmanship is one of the most complex in High Jewelry. It takes nearly a month for the Goldsmith to create a gold plate of half a millimeter by hand and shape minuscule hexagonal cells inside of it. The design comes to light and levitates upon the impalpable honeycomb texture.

The Tulle collection was designed in the 20s by Mario Buccellati. He found inspiration in Venetian laces, with their intricate floral motifs, and pentagonal cells resembling beehives. The making of a Tulle piece is a very long process: artisans dedicate hundreds of hours, and thousands of seconds, to the meticolous creation of a single piece of art. From the original drawing reproduced on a gold plate, to the manual saw used to engrave the beautiful pattern, this may seem a very ancient story. But in fact, in our Maison, tradition is passed over from generation to generation, always keeping an eye on the future. This collection shines in refinement and elegance among the most perfect creations destined to become timeless.
