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.
