How to start a jewelry collection

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

A good way to start collecting jewelry is to focus on one category, then work your way up to include other categories. For example, if you want to start a Marco Bicego collection, why not focus on its rings first, something that you can wear in casual or formal occasions. Marco Bicego has a wide range of ring styles culled from its travel-inspired themes. The Massai Two Row Ring in Yellow and White Gold is simple but artistic. The gap between the two metals provides a tease. On the other hand, the Jaipur Link Gold and Diamond Five Row Ring is bold and opulent. The diamonds ensure this ring is one of Marco Bicego’s more exclusive pieces. If you want to put color to your ring, there’s the Lunaria Gold and Red Jasper Cocktail Ring. The name itself suggests this ring is exclusive to formal evenings, but, go ahead, it can match a sleek corporate attire.

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

Each piece reflects individual uniqueness—no two Marco Bicego pieces are exactly alike because each one is handcrafted, reflecting the passion and artistry of the craftsman. You can wear a Marco Bicego every day, such as, at work, over lunch out with friends, or simply chilling out with the family on weekends.

What's your favorite Marco Bicego?

Posted by Schiffman's at 10:25:20 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

Marco Bicego once admitted that his jewelry lines are not for the budget conscious. They are expensive, he said, precisely because they are designed with passion and created by hand. You don't see exactly identical Marco Bicego pieces, which means owning one gives you a pride of exclusivity. One of our favorite Marco Bicego collections is Jaipur, named after the ancient Indian city of rajahs. The collection is inspired by the city's love for colorful gemstones. The connection is most evident in the Jaipur necklace, a series of colored gem drops along a fine gold string. Ironically, the simplicity of this style makes the necklace even more magnificent, giving you a sense of the past when Indian royalties had worn these gems with pride and opulence. The gems include  amethyst, peridot, lemon citrine, blue topaz, and green tourmaline.

Minimalist

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

Did you ever notice what makes Italian designs eye-catching and drool-enticing? Whether it's a mink trench coat or a ubiquitous item as an office swivel chair, Italian design approaches styles with minimalism. It's even more apparent when Italian design is put beside, say, French or Spanish styles; the former's streamlined lines and propensity for a single, solid seamless piece are highlighted. In jewelry, this is evident in Marco Bicego, the Italian signature known for eccentric culturally-oriented jewelry pieces. The fine jewelry signature features elegant lines with little distraction and most pieces are forged as a solid singular piece with minimal accent of gemstones. Even when Marco Bicego sprinkles varied colors in its collection, such as Jaipur and Milano, the result is still an impressive take on minimalist art.

A gemstone variety of the mineral corundum, an aluminum oxide, sapphire traces amounts of other elements such as iron, titanium, chromium, copper, or magnesium which can give corundum blue, yellow, purple, orange, or a greenish color. Chromium impurities in corundum yield a pink or red tint, the latter being called a ruby. Since sapphires are commonly worn in jewelry, Marco Bicego uses this extraordinary stone to create an extraordinary collection. Unveiling one of his most phenomenal collections, the Siviglia Sapphire Collection features hand-textured gold confetti beads set with radiant sapphires.

The Man in Mankind

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

Uomo is the Italian word for man, or mankind, or humanity. The word "mankind" can be traced back to a specific use of this lost word "mann" from the Anglo-Saxon word "mann-cynn," meaning both a group of men and all humanity. But, the word “man” is rarely used these days to mean “all humanity” – it is almost never gender-neutral nowadays. So Italian “uomo” could most definitely mean “male” – a word we would use to mean the ones we call father, brother, and son. 
 
At Marco Bicego, the word Uomo personifies a whole new world of manhood. With Marco Bicego’s first collection of jewelry for men, the “Uomo Collection,” men will now have the opportunity to be perfectly in sync with the timeless allure and elegance of the eminent Marco Bicego women’s collection. The Uomo Collection is instinctive and inspired by the very voyages that guide man around the world time and time again.

It’s Time for Africa!

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:00:00 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

Extending to more than 30.2 million square kilometers and covering 6% of the Earth’s total surface, Africa is the second most populous and second largest continent. Boasting the world’s largest combination of density and of wild animal populations and diversity, the African territory is home to variety of jungle animals including snakes and primates and aquatic life which includes crocodiles and amphibians. African plains also pride having the largest population of carnivores including cheetahs, hyenas and lions and herbivores such as camels, elephants, buffalos and giraffes. Indisputably, Africa is the home of the wild and the cradle of biodiversity.
 
For all its immense area of savannas and safaris, Africa is a living paradise to the natives who inhabit the area. Africans so much love the very ground where they stand afoot as much as the Sun loves the golden dunes of the Sahara Dessert. Oh, Sahara, a world lost in time, a golden princess lying plainly under the Sun. Beyond space and time, it has stood through all the tests of the changing seasons. It has remained faithful to the scorching heat that made her alive through all time. Her soft and graceful dunes are the loveliness sure to take your breath away.

All in a Glance

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

A flurry of sparkly, colorful shreds of paper evokes a feeling of celebration to most of us. That is why it’s not hard to think that confetti over our heads paints such a joyous and vivid picture of whatever memorable event we are celebrating, even decades after. Not surprisingly, the word confetti came from the people who invented “love of life” itself – the Italians. Although, confetti as commonly used, is thrown over newlyweds to show that the guests wish to sprinkle the union with blessings, it is also a great way to signify the end of the ceremony and the beginning of the party. 
 
Marco Bicego, an Italian himself, definitely has confetti all over him – including his aptly named collection, the Confetti Gemme. The Confetti Gemme Collection includes a confetti of colors emanating from luminous semiprecious stones such as blue topaz, amethyst, rose tourmaline, lemon citrine, and peridot set in satin-finished yellow and white gold, for a youthful and very feminine collection – a beauty all in a glance.

To Wear Paradise

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:25:00 AM in Marco Bicego (44)

 

Depending on what would make you the happiest, paradise in any shape or form is something different for each and every person. Is it heaven for you? Is it a serene beach with white shores? A meadow with long grass blowing in the breeze? It can be a place in the mountains with a fresh mountain stream running past your house, or white snow-capped mountains, or running and gawking wild animals here and there, or a crystal blue lake where one can boat or fish, or an island where you can scuba dive, water ski, sun bathe, jet ski, swim and shop, or a home filled with love and family. Regardless, paradise, is what people view as their most tranquil place.
To those who have already been to Sardinia, life in Sardinia maybe the best a man can hope for: twenty-four thousand miles of forests, of countryside, of coasts surrounded by a miraculous sea – truly an epitome of what the good God may give us as paradise. Sardinia in fact is the Italian region with the largest coastal development, the sea is clear and practically preserved from every kind of pollution. You will be fascinated by the small coves that lie in wild corners of the crystalline seas, you will be astonished to see the wonders that nature, with patience over the centuries, has created in the spectacular caves that penetrate the heart of the island. Being a so ancient land, the erosion of wind and rain has made that Sardinia has no high mountains; nevertheless it is mostly mountainous, characterized by plateaus and group of hills. All in all, Sardinia is a charming paradise that have to discovered and talked about. This maybe is the reason why, of all the things one can think of as paradise, Marco Bicego, the famous Italian jeweler, decided that it is the beautiful Sardinia with its wonderful beaches, characterized by particular turquoise intense colors and very transparent water, should be called paradise. It is perhaps the belief that paradise is not simply given to us but something that we have to work on with pure love and passion, something that we have the responsibility to contribute to the its creation that Marco Bicego decided to create a perception of tranquil paradise in his jewelries -- because paradise does not happen without attention, awareness, concern, and lots of energy and love.
 
Marco Bicego's jewels are items of contemporary seduction: necklaces, bracelets, earrings and finger rings are fruit of old goldsmith techniques, the knowledge of craftsmen handed down from generation to generation. Since the launch of his eponymous jewelry line in 2000 Marco Bicego has redefined the phrase "everyday luxury" with sensuous, extraordinary beautiful jewelry. Marco Bicego began his artesian training under his father at the young age of 22. His creations are inspired by hand engraved beads and multi textured, unique stones. His designs encompass old world craftsmanship with the modern element of urban chic design. Marco Bicego earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings are handmade by Italian jewelry artisans, providing a unique, luxurious experience for the jewelry buyer.

The intense colors of Sardinian beaches are the inspiration behind Paradise, a youthful and sensual collection combining drop-cut gems with hang-engraved gold. Created in 2005, Paradise was an instant success, and continues to dazzle even the newest Marco Bicego customer. Shimmering rose and white quartz compliment an infinitely delicate range of aqua blue and green semi-precious stones, in a feminine “mix” of golden chains and tiny hand-engraved gold beads. One of the items included in the collection is the Semi-Precious Stone and 18-Karat Gold Necklace which is a yellow gold/semi-precious stones necklace with multi semi-precious stones, 16” long with clasp closure. Marco Bicego Paradise pieces have always been the best in their class. Marco Bicego Paradise Necklace, 18" is no exception. It is an 18-karat yellow gold that uses mixed tourmalines, quartz, peridot, garnet, iolite, tanzanite, aquamarine and topaz with lobster clasp closure.
