Spectacular in its sophisticated design and opulent gems, the Marco Bicego 18K Yellow Gold & Mixed Stone Bracelet is a statement of understated nobility. Six richly colored, irregular faceted semi-precious stones - amethyst, blue topaz, iolite and tourmalines - channel the sumptuous waters of the Venetian Sea, while the painstakingly handcrafted yellow gold adds a magnificent refinement to the piece. There is an exquisite delicateness and a resolute symmetry in the bracelet's composition, making it the epitome of the contemporary aesthetic.
Part of Bicego's Murano collection, this piece is designed to go with everything from a classic white T-shirt and jeans to breathtaking evening gown. Bicego has said that his jewelry is meant to be worn every day, not saved for special occasions, although this bracelet could elevate any outfit into a gala worthy ensemble. With its modern architecture, bracelet can be worn alone but can also be layered with other jewelry, especially other gorgeous items from the Murano collection. The collection includes other pieces featuring multicolored stones, as well as pieces that focus on elegant gold links and diamonds.
Indeed, part of the charm of Bicego's jewelry is its versatility, along with Old World Italian craftsmanship. The stunning gemstones are sourced from around the world but transformed into art in his Vicenza, Italy atelier. The gold components showcase an inimitable, hand-engraved Bulino technique.
Bicego's proud heritage as part of a family of goldsmiths shines through this thoughtful and splendid bracelet.
