Perhaps one of the factors that make a Marco Bicego
jewelry alluring is the owner himself. Marco Bicego
, the man, is that typical Italian steeped in culture, arts, and history. He hails from Veneto
, a stone's throw from Venice; hence, he's exposed to a rich heritage. In fact, Bicego
said that his local place inspired him to create culturally oriented collections, such as, Milano, Jaipur
, and Marrakesh
, while maintaining that all his jewelry pieces are 100% handcrafted in Italy. This setup and his local background make his collections exude unique, simple artesian craftsmanship. "It's about culture, and spirit. Creating something new," he said in an interview with Fine magazine. He said he enjoyed blending urban and ethnic motifs, as well as colored stones and yellow gold.
Marco Bicego is available at Keller & George on Millmont St., Charlottesville.
