It’s hard to believe that this quiet, intimate Madison boutique is the busiest of Buccellati’s fourteen worldwide locations, even its Milan headquarters. The signature Eternelle rings, gold and silver accessories, and nature-inspired pieces (like a gem-encrusted butterfly pin or a floral brooch) all make use of the same craftsmanship that founder Mario Buccellati displayed three generations ago. Among its million dollar inventory are emerald-, sapphire- and ruby-dripped objets d’art, and Swiss-made watches with engraved bands inspired by Persian carpets. The second floor is dedicated exclusively to silver pieces, including leaf- and shell-shaped dishes, 100-set flatware collections, fruit- and vegetable-shaped silver-capped jars, and engraved frames.Wedding Rings
Popular among brides going for a feminine look, the Etern¬elles line ($7,000–$35,000) showcases rings so delicate they look like diamond netting.
