Today, I’m at the Charlotte Street Hotel in London to meet Marco Bicego, and find out how his brand makes jewels that are so different, yet so very wearable.
Marco your company has such a rich history but can you tell me what is so different about your jewellery.
Marco Bicego: “Modern, definitely and versatile, beautiful, comfortable, handmade in Veneto, Italy, and personal for sure.
“Jewellery is about also, definitely emotion, but also how you touch and you feel.”
These are all things that sounds like clothes.
Marco: “Yes, this is why I think it’s important, you know, you have to definitely to wear the nice piece of jewellery, but also to be comfortable”.
And feel good, (Marco: “Yes”), I forgot I’m wearing this. (Laughter)
Marco: “Yes, this is why I think, you can enjoy and wear as everyday, a piece of jewellery.”
Maria: Good. (Marco: “Yes, absolutely”). (Laughter).
Marco: “When I want to relax, I goes downstairs (in the gem studio), I have all the stones on my desk and I start playing with them, because I am going to make something special.
“One side of my heart want to sell, the other side want to keep it, i love it and I’d like always to keep my jewelry, like my, my, my kids, you know”.
And as promised here is a question from one of our readers. And she’s Rosemary in, Nigeria, and she wants to ask Marco, How do you stay true to your design
Marco: “For me jewellery is about timeless. It is for the first collection I made to the last, that is all these collections. I never followed the trends, because jewellery for me is something different and you have to be able to wear for long term”.
And Makita, from the Philippines, asks which is his favourite jewellery?
“It is funny but I really like and feel connected to Indian Jewellery”.
