Buccellati Cutting Technology

Edge cut texture: This is a cutting method commonly seen on the edges of jewelry. The artisans draw parallel textures on the metal surface to highlight the weight of the jewelry. The fine texture gives the jewelry a gauzy-like texture. This process is often used in jewelry and other forms of woven gold carving.


Gold screw: This is a refined cross-stitch technique in textile technology. The cut left by this method could be more shiny. It looks like linen. The production process of this process is complicated, and it is necessary to twist several gold wires cast into a twine shape—then the twisted twine into a particular molding mold to facilitate post-processing. Finally, the molded cord is braided or stacked by hand. The effect presented in this way is superior to machine microcarving, and the texture is more three-dimensional and fine.


Velvet effect: The artisans use a spatula knife to work fine grain lines into the metal surface by hand to produce a velvety texture. The visual effect is mild and low-key. Segrinato process-based jewelry is the classic style of Buccellati.


Metal microcarving technology: This is a complex craft, mainly to represent natural creatures, animals, leaves, and flowers. In other words, this technique is the most authentic restoration of the most primitive things in life. For this piece of silver maple leaf, the metal microcarving process is used to carve out an extremely delicate vein on the metal surface. This bracelet is also made using the Ornato process, which creates a floral texture on the metal surface, giving the whole piece a soft, textured look. In addition to these carvings of gold and silver, Buccellati also has several animal-shaped silver pieces, which are not carved but stacked on top of each other, resulting in the texture of animal plush.


Honeycomb molding technology: Also known as lace craft, the lace fabric of the Renaissance inspires its design. This process requires artisans to cut small holes in a piece of gold, thread fragile metal wires through the holes, and rub them repeatedly to carve out a delicate honeycomb shape. Artisans need to accurately carve out hexagons on the surface of the jewelry to form a dense mesh on the surface of the jewelry and finally embed the gem in the mesh. The honeycomb shape produced by the Modellato process is the most representative classic work of the weaving and gold carving process. This shape has exceptionally high requirements for the artisans. A slight mistake, excessive force, or Angle deviation will lead to the whole work being wasted.
