Marco Bicego unveils Paradise collection
Dubai, May 2, 2009
Marco Bicego, the renowned Italian jewellery house, has unveiled its lyrical Paradise collection at Damas Boutiques in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Blending delicate 18k yellow gold chains with his signature hand engraved gold beads, South Sea pearls and colourful gems of every hue the visionary designer comes up with yet another iconic collection to win women over in whimsical options for casual, day as well as evening allure, said a Damas official.
Paradise has a poetic, flowing quality to it resembling water droplets strung on a thread, which shimmer as they catch the play of sunlight.
In Paradise, Bicego immortalises the imagery with a rich, luminous array of multihued semi-precious stones such as amethysts, citrines, garnets, blue topaz, rose quartz, along with gleaming freshwater pearls and his signature hand engraved gold beads which play water droplets and strings them on delicate gold chains, he noted.
Bicego then transforms them with practiced ease into single chain or multiple chain necklaces, bracelets, drop earrings and rings to offer jewels of pure feminine essence, he added.
Bicego’s jewellery has an emotive quality to it that’s immediately discernible to the viewer, and each handcrafted piece in the Paradise collection exudes this quality.
As a term denoting a faraway land where one is free of all cares, ‘Paradise’ instantly recalls such aspects like bliss, ‘Seventh Heaven’ and ecstasy, the official remarked.
Marco Bicego said: "The Paradise collection is defined by a flowing, cascading quality to it, enriched by a colourful blend of gemstones and hand engraved gold beads."
"Bicego fans would be interested to know that Paradise is a collection inspired by the sun’s reflection in the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea when I was swimming there during one of my trips," he quipped.
It is this winning combination that has attracted modern, cosmopolitan women to his collections, most notably its long time fan US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, who at the Democratic National Convention wore a delicately feminine three-strand Paradise necklace.
Bicego’s latest collections include his marvellous Jaipur collection which offers an array of necklaces, bracelets, drop earrings and rings celebrating the ‘Pink City of India’ – Jaipur’s legendary stone cutting technique, which enhances the beauty of each stone in a unique way.
His other popular collection is Confetti, an elegant and timeless line inspired by the allure of natural variation, the imperfectly perfect at its finest, where hand engraved feather light, satin-finish, gold pebbles, highlighted by the sparkle of diamonds, intertwine with finely linked delicate chains.-TradeArabia News Service
