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
vision? for me to always about timeless 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
