Collection

Africa

Inspired by distant lands, the AFRICA collection evokes desert landscapes and magical starry nights. The 18-carat yellow gold spheres that characterise this collection are finely engraved by hand with thin grooves using the ancient Florentine “millerighe” burin technique, creating a fine, brushed texture. The coloured designs see spheres with the characteristic irregular surface alternated with colourful gems of rare beauty, such as amethyst, peridot, yellow quartz, red garnet, tourmaline, London topaz and freshwater pearls. Intense shades create exquisite, sophisticated colour combinations.

Craftmanship

Bulino

The “millerighe” burin is an engraving tool in use since the Renaissance. It creates both a visual and tactile finish on metal surfaces, with tiny grooves following the same direction that result in a satisfying, silky sensation to the touch. The exquisite, minute shifts of chiaroscuro are also an enchanting sight to behold.

Handcrafted burin engraving is a testimony to the longstanding tradition and artisanal heritage of goldsmithing in Vicenza, where the brand Marco Bicego still has its roots. It results in the creation of unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry that is flawless with its carefully-considered imperfections.
