How Our Journey Began
The concept for Buccarello Jewellery was created back in the summer of 2014, when our founder, Sofia, started selling jewellery in a small coastal market in Southern Italy. Sofia would continue to return and sell her products there every summer after school, after exams and even after University classes.
During her time at University, Sofia studied fashion business and history, which inspired her to turn her passion for jewellery into a full-time career. This led Sofia to start creating and designing her own semi-fine jewellery; searching for new materials to use such as lustrous pearls and faceted stones.
After a few years of selling at the market stall, Sofia built up a list of returning customers (some even turned into friends) and created a close-knit community of loyal fans. It was these customers that motivated her to keep designing and crafting jewellery and push forward with her vision.
She used the techniques and skills she learned during her time on a jewellery design course in Milan to help design new concepts. As a result, she set up her first online store and thus Buccarello Jewellery was born.
Today, Buccarello Jewellery is still a small family-run business based in Italy. Sofia believes that the focus she puts into the quality of materials used, and the the continued relationship she has with all of her customers, is the reason why Buccarello Jewellery is so successful.
About our semi fine jewellery
Every piece of Buccarello jewellery is designed and hand made in Italy by Sofia herself and a small team of local artisans, she works very closely with. They take pride in their work and the quality of the jewellery they produce.
Most of our jewellery for Buccarello is made using 925 silver sourced here in Italy. Although we recognise that Italy has some of the highest quality materials and craftsmanship in the world, we do not want to limit ourselves when it comes to sourcing materials from other countries. We also use beautiful opals from Ethiopia and Australia, freshwater pearls from China, and semi-precious stones from India and Pakistan.
We have been using pearls since day one, and we take pride in their quality! We always take into consideration that pearls are imperfect, which is part of the reason why we love them. Nonetheless, all of our pearls go through a scrutinising selection process, ensuring we only use the highest quality pearls in all of our designs.
