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’s fabulous Murano Collection is available at Shreve & Co. in Portland, Oregon, San Francisco, California, and Palo Alto, California.
