Marco Bicego Jewelry Artisan Carves His Own Cultural Design

A Blend of Old World Italian Craftsmanship Passion and Imagination

Marco Bicego aspired from his father’s goldsmithing factory instigates the deep rooted history in rich tradition in his gold brand designed to reflect his collection debuting in 2000 at the Vicenza Oro Fair. Mr. Bicego’s work started to evolve through his travel to exotic places such as Jaipur and Africa viewing impressions of tribal jewelry and semi precious stones.

Currently, his Spring-Summer Collection for 2012, the Jaipur Sunset Collection, is illuminated by beautiful shades of natural stones and elegant touches. These pieces are reminiscent of a tropical Indian Sunset and a celebration of the Jaipur region’s rich tradition of precious stone carving featuring an exclusive Marco Bicego faceted cut. Specialized pronged stone settings allow a sparkle with a kaleidoscope of light adding color and composition of each stone. Every piece is radiant hand engraved and textured in meticulous detail texturing the gold to give it greater depth. The end result is a marriage of old-style craftsmanship contemporary elegance and jewels that are precious but versatile.

Bicego shared a few moments with me before the showing. I was very honored that he displayed his treasured secrets his tools. A true artisan that embraces his cutlery and is soft spoken with his sensuous Italian accent.  He enamored the ladies as we all shared each piece adorning our necks, ears, and wrists with his fine pieces. Bicego adores the American Woman, he loves her independence and divine style of purchasing a piece that defines her and depicts her lifestyle and look of the moment. “Everyday Luxury” Marco’s favorite expression translates the idea that we can wear a special piece of Marco Bicego at anytime and the look transcends into a vision of diversity. Modern is all about efficient looks and Marco Bicego might have been influenced by old world tradition but the theme of the current collection represents a gentle and subtle signature of the Bicego charming designs!
