Italian Accents in the Windy City

Buccellati has updated its presence on Oak Street in Chicago

It’s hard to believe, but Italian jewelry house Buccellati has had its home on Oak Street for almost three years now. Though its ornate two-level boutique in the former Esquire Theatre space—with walls covered in Italian silk, hand-carved paneling and a stunning Venetian chandelier—was in great condition, it recently underwent a face-lift to make room for the brand’s new Opera collection and additions to its iconic Hawaii and Macri lines.

But don’t worry: The jewelry cases (with new, top-of-the-line lighting) are still filled with the company’s unique handmade jewels, elegant watches and other high-end, one-of-kind pieces. “Chicagoans have been collecting Buccellati for years,” says Andrea Buccellati, the third-generation president and co-creative director. “We are excited to offer a carefully curated selection to discerning clients with true appreciation for Buccellati designs and craftsmanship.”
