He's the founder of the famous Italian jewelry brand that's also his namesake. The brand is known for its colorful gemstones and handcrafted yellow gold that creates nuances that no two pieces are alike. Marco Bicego
said he's inspired by organic designs, which reflects the natural simplicity of his collections, such as Milano, Jaipur
, and Goa. "I
believe in my collections, as they truly come from the heart. It's a very personal thing,"
he said in a Fine magazine interview. He compared his designs to a woman's clothing, where the right mix of colors create an emotional connection to the wearer. Surprisingly, Marco Bicego
didn't go through a formal jewelry design class. "It's part of me, creating style and expression." Although his father is a goldsmith, he said he never thought that jewelry design would be his future.
