“Clotilde” tiara

More and more admired by the Milanese aristocracy, Mario Buccellati enters La Scala theatre with his jewels. The society women who wanted to attend the opening of the theatre season went to the boutique even six months in advance in order to secure one of the exclusive creations of the Maison to wear.

 

Very much in vogue at that time was the tiara, heritage of an elegance of centuries past, almost a “middle-class” heir, an adaptation to the changing of times of an important and exclusive object, full of significances, such as the royal crown.

 

This tiara is realized in silver lined with gold, with openwork branches set with rose-cut diamonds and pearls.

 

Mario Buccellati loved this kind of ornament very much and devised many fanciful exemplars.
