Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas – there is always a special occasion approaching on the calendar, so grabbing an idea here or there from our stunning array of designer brands and bespoke jewellery creations here at Owen & Robinson, is always a good idea! This week, we’re taking the opportunity to showcase some of our favourite designs from our Marco Bicego jewellery range.
Marco Bicego was founded in 2000 and handcrafts all of its pieces in Trissiono in the Veneto region of Northern Italy. Every single creation is unique. No two innovations are ever the same, which makes them particularly special for gifting to a loved one, a friend or family member. Let’s look through some of our most popular designs from the famous Italian manufacturer and its prestigious collections to offer you some helpful inspiration this season.
Reminiscent of tribal jewellery, Marco Bicego Africa pieces are simple, rustic and full of African charm. This extravagant expression using golden boules brings something confident and bold to sophisticated attire. Crafted from 18ct yellow gold and finished with hand-engraved and textured finishes – the bracelets, rings, earrings and rings from this popular Marco Bicego jewellery collection help to transform an outfit into something stylish for wearing during the daytime. This Africa 18ct Yellow Gold Long Graduated Bead Necklace, despite its bold look, has a remarkably lightweight and fluid feel and is priced at £6,180 from our Marco Bicego Africa jewellery collection here at Owen & Robinson.
Designs from the Italian brand’s Goa collection boast twisted strands of 18ct white gold mixed with textured hand techniques, polished surfaces and scintillating diamonds. This contemporary Marco Bicego 18ct White Gold Five Row Diamond Goa Ring is priced at £2,700 and inspired by the idyllic white beaches of Goa in India. The design features 5 rows of lustrous 18ct white gold – some of which are completed by the Corda di Chitarra technique creating an intricate ribbed effect. Others are smooth and polished. Crisp round brilliant-cut diamonds add a lavish finish to these coiling pieces of white gold, enveloping the finger comfortably and mirroring the curves of a woman’s body. Contemporary and purist, these clean, modern pieces of Goa jewellery are carefully manipulated into shimmering rows, making for a great statement piece to add to your favourite outfit.
If the cold months aren’t bringing much cheer, the colourful gemstones incorporated into Marco Bicego Jaipur jewellery designs add a touch of vibrancy and sunshine into everyday life. The pieces from the range are sure to take you back to a special memory on holiday, with warming 18ct yellow gold tones that combine with tropical colours for a remarkable finish to elegant attire. The great thing about Jaipur jewellery from Marco Bicego is its versatility. The earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings from the collection can be paired with daytime or evening attire. Jaipur jewellery is inspired by the tropical Indian sunset and the city’s fascinating stonecutting heritage. This Marco Bicego Jaipur 18ct Yellow Gold Five Strand Mixed Stone Bracelet priced at £4,460, unites a rustic charm with an elegant, dainty design. The gemstones sit effortlessly inside this five-strand bracelet, capturing the essence and culture of the capital of India’s Rajasthan state. Hand-chiselled 18ct yellow gold has been rendered into an irregular-shaped clasp for an organic yet contemporary take on the brand’s yellow gold jewellery.
Marco Bicego jewellery designs from the Lunaria collection take inspiration from the company founder’s love for nature. The designs are, in some ways, remarkably simple and bold, but upon closer inspection boast meticulous hand-engraved finishes that give each piece a strong sense of character. This Marco Bicego 18ct yellow gold ring has been hand-moulded by craftsmen. Imitating the gentle movement of petals caught in a breeze, Marco Bicego rings like this one are ideal for wearing as an individual piece on the hand. By using a sequence of plates, the metal undergoes techniques that create a mix of polished and textured finishes. This Lunaria ring is priced at £1,790 from our collection and will make a great gift idea for a loved one’s birthday over the coming winter months.
The 18ct yellow delights from the Marco Bicego Marrakech jewellery collection define the brand’s signature design codes. Elegant and timeless creations like this Marco Bicego 18ct yellow and white gold diamond bangle priced at £1,900 are perfect for combining with formal or smart attire and have been infused with Italian charm. Wrapping around the wrist with twisted 18ct yellow gold, the bangle is adorned with three single round brilliant-cut diamonds that are held inside a classic 18ct white gold four claw setting. These precious, scintillating stones which amount to a total weight of 0.15 carats, will add a touch of opulence and finesse to any elegant outfit.
Finished with satin white and pink pearls suspended from the base of the drop, these elegant Marco Bicego Paradise earrings are a delicate addition to any jewellery collection. The design incorporates colourful tabeez-cut gemstones like tourmaline and citrine, hanging from fine 18ct yellow gold links. The earrings attach to the back of the ears with a classic post and butterfly fasten and are priced at £600. Marco Bicego found inspiration in crystalline reflections of sunlight which has become the background to the range. Cylindrical carved pieces of 18ct yellow gold have been finished with the Bulino hand-engraved technique, achieved by using the ancient Bulino tool. Golden beads and colourful gemstones are perfectly balanced in each piece of Marco Bicego Paradise jewellery, making them wonderful gift ideas for a special friend or family member.
