On Friday, November 18th, world renowned jewelry designer Marco Bicego will be at the Shreve & Co. store in San Francisco from 2pm-5pm. As part of the event, Shreve will have an increased stock of Marco Bicego jewelry included many limited edition and one-of-a-kind pieces.
Attendees will be able to meet Marco personally and also have him hand engrave either newly purchased Marco Bicego pieces or they can bring in their own pieces to the event for engraving. What better way to accentuate a Marco Bicego piece than with an added personal engraving by the master designer himself.
My family has carried Marco’s jewelry for many years and we’ve long been huge fans of his work. In fact, here’s a photo of my sister and Marco taken in 2008 on her first trip to the Baselworld World Watch and Jewelry Show in Switzerland.
Marco’s father founded the family jewelry business in Vicenza Italy in 1958. When Marco took over, his family was already well known for old world craftsmanship. Marco carried on that tradition but added stunning contemporary design to the mix.
Marco likes to say his jewelry represents “Everyday Luxury,” a focus which is evident from his designs. One wouldn’t normally associate multicolored gemstones, hand textured and engraved gold, and modern design with every day wearability, but Marco Bicego certainly pulls it off.
