You can say Marco Bicego gemstone jewelry pieces are similar to festivals around the world. Each collection has its flavor and aura. Whether it’s a Murano or Marrakesh, a Delicati or Goa, the jewelry represents a culture, a town, or the idiosyncrasy of a people. The Marco Bicego collections are like attending a town festival, you can sense the local flavor and marvel at the depth of artistry or musicality. It’s like going to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, the only place where the beat of the bulls’ hooves sends tourists running away with smiles in their faces. Or like dancing at the Carnival in Rio, a place where scantily clad curvaceous women dance seductively and it’s okay to watch them with your kids. In another place both scenes will be sacrilegious.

If you’re minimalist and love wearing jewelry with simple but striking features, you’ll love Marco Bicego’s Delicati Collection. Marco Bicego revamps his previous successful repertoire of styles like the Marrakech, Jaipur, and Milano, by creating jewels in bare style but with minute details. The collection celebrates Marco Bicego’s penchant for culture — from Arabic to Indian to Italian — and reduces them into colorful pendants strung in hand engraved 18k yellow gold chain. You have a tempting array of rose cut cushion amethyst, brilliant cut diamonds, irregular faceting blue topaz, and other gems delicately styled as only Marco Bicego can inspire to happen. Whether you wear the Delicati Collection on the most lavish night or the most ordinary casual gathering, it shines without being loud, a mark of sophisticated fashion.

Pepsi used to be just soft drinks. You want a carbonated sweet drink and you order a Pepsi. But now, not only does Pepsi sell you all kinds of crappy versions—diet, caffeine-free, One, Max, etc.—it also sells you items that are far removed from the soda category, such as, tortillas, cereals, potato chips and snack bars. So what does it got to do with luxury jewelry? When a company tries to sell you all kinds of stuff, it smacks of an attempt to rip you off or at least get the most cash out of your wallet. When a luxury jewelry sticks to its core product, like a Marco Bicego focuses on his eccentric art and style, you know that you’re buying the passion, nay, the signature, of that brand, not some commercial attempt to dominate you.

Running out of ideas what to give your girlfriend? Unless it’s a very special occasion like an anniversary or her birthday (which demands no less than a Marco Bicego jewelry, perhaps), you don’t need to give her an expensive gift. It really is the thought that counts, so make sure your thought is creative enough. Here are some ideas. A handbag designed coffee mug. It’s a fun symbol of your love for coffee and her romance with bags in one piece. A sleeveless shirt with your name on it. Yes, you’re claiming your territory but without coming across as a chauvinist. An oversized sweater for those cool nights when you can snuggle with her inside it. And here’s a winner: a simple yet elegant makeup bag. Every woman needs one, but every man doesn’t know this, making you one of a kind, eh?

Who isn't fascinated by colors? But colors are more than just a feast for the eyes. Colors, they say, hold various meanings that can change our mood and how we feel. We also use or wear colors to express ourselves. When colors are carefully woven into a piece of jewelry, it becomes more expressive and turns into a rare masterpiece. Look at how a delicate range of aqua blue and green gemstones add charm to a plain golden bracelet in Marco Bicego's "Paradise" collection. The varying shapes of the precious stones and how they are randomly placed in the chain of gold form a distinct character. The colorful jewelry collections of Marco Bicego are made from ultra-carefully selected natural stones and gems.

Marco Bicego’s creative ingenuity is beautifully expressed in the interplay of sheen and texture between the yellow gold and the vibrant gemstones of his Murano Collection. Beautifully hand-engraved in the time-tested Bulino technique, the textured gold in interspersed by polished gold elements and dramatically enhanced by gemstones that reflect the Venetian Sea in its many moods - from its deep, mysterious shades at dawn to the sun-blushed tints of dusk. The 18K yellow gold of this Murano bracelet is handcast into round-edged geometric shapes that envisage smooth pebbles on a golden beach. The polished gold elements provide contrast to the fine texture of the hand-engraved 18K gold while irregularly-faceted topaz, amethyst, quartz and tourmaline, among others, lend their vibrant beauty to this exquisite work of art.

Marco Bicego, Italian jewelry designer, brand owner, family man, and unrestrained traveler, loves to play with colors in his nature inspired collections like Paradise and Jaipur Sunset. But Marco Bicego is not always about colors. His Jaipur Link Collection uses yellow gold as medium, embellished only with expertly rendered loops and waves. Jaipur Link chains are interwoven with golden loops that imitate nature's beautifully spontaneous and asymmetrical arrangements, giving an aura of natural and effortless grace. The interplay of long, slender strands with alternating rings add playful movement to the pieces. If there is anything Marco Bicego wants to express in this collection, elegance does not need dazzling stones and lively jewelry do not always have to be colorful. Jaipur Link is neither studded nor multi-colored, yet it is completely stylish and unexpectedly vibrant.

Coming from a family of goldsmiths, Marco Bicego was born with it. He didn’t really had to go far to acquire his eye and talent for jewelry. He is a natural with the gift of sensing what women crave in fashion and jewelry. Drawing from his father’s omega necklaces, Marco created his unique “guitar string” coils in early 2000. In early 2002 in line grew and evolved to include the Marrakech, a Marco Bicego “best-seller” featuring his coiled gold strands. Drawing from the spirituality of the Indian shores, the Goa collection has been created. With its diamond fitted untwisted coil, a crisscrossed flattened strands in white, yellow and pink gold follow the curves of women’s body. But most of his inspiration comes from the natural mystery of woman, a mystery that he already seemingly solved. “She is a universal woman of style and confidence; she enjoys the luxury of travel and fine food, appreciates art, history, and fine design. She has no specific age or place, but is a woman who wears creations that flatter her heart and soul, finding luxury in her everyday world and experiences…,” Marco Bicego on the clients he serves.
