The art transformıng from jewelry to bags
Each handbag has its own rich backstory, but their creators are very similar in two respects: their love for jewellery art and their open-mindedness to experiment with precious stones beyond the realms of jewellery.
A stylish bag is as important as clothing, shoes and jewelry for woman. Especially if she attends a dinner or special event, don’t neglect the situation. An ordinary clutch is disastrous affair for a successful look. For this, it is important don’t extenuate the bag too lightly. Then we want to look at clutch with jewels, gold plated, designed from rare animal skin, decorated with precious stones and whatever they are called, specially designed by famous brands.
Since 1919, Buccellati has been offering its customers not only jewellery and watches but also a wide range of cutlery, figurines, dinnerware, cigarette cases, keyrings and souvenirs. Of all the designs take attention two clutches by Gianmaria Buccellati created in 1980 and 2008.
The first is crafted from rigato-engraved silver and embellished with gold-engraved flowers and leaves moved by La Scala opera house in Milan. The clasp of bag encrusted with 44 emeralds (0.97 carats), 17 rubies (0.69 carats) and 28 diamonds (0.63 carats).
