The Lunaria Petali collection by Marco Bicego, flowers and diamonds with a delicate gold processing ♦ ︎
Marco Bicego stays on Lunaria, but the spring air makes a flower bloom. Or, better, many flowers, golden and soft. It is called Lunaria Petali the collection which is an extension of the already well-known Lunaria collection and which re-proposes the way of interpreting the jewel, in the tradition of the Maison.
In this case the petals, obtained from thin yellow gold leaves hand-engraved with the characteristic technique of the burin and enclosed by a shiny gold contrasting wire, create corollas that open up to reveal a pistil in gold or diamond.
The flowers are used to form bracelets and necklaces, rings and earrings of different types with small bouquets. They are jewels that give the impression of lightness, with a spring flavor. The rings, for example, can have eight or 16 petals, while the necklace alternates flowers with simple leaves, also in gold worked with a burin. But the piece of greatest impact is a necklace composed of 11 flowers and related diamonds alternating with gold leaves. Margherita Donato
