Marco Bicego Introduces High Jewelry Collection ‘Alta’
It elevates offerings from the brand’s core collections.
It introduced its “Alta” high jewelry collection at Haute Jewels Geneva 2022, held at the same time as Watches and Wonders Geneva.
It’s the first high jewelry collection for the Italian brand, with each piece meticulously handmade in its workshop.
“Alta is an ode to the magnificence of natural gemstones, but also to the incredible craftsmanship of our artisans working from our atelier in Trissino, Italy,” said the eponymous designer in a statement.
“We see high jewelry as the art of elevating precious stones. Nature, flowers, and leaves have always been sources of inspiration to me, and we still are very loyal to these concepts, because they give us the possibility to highlight the traditional handcrafting techniques we use.
Rather than developing an entirely new high jewelry collection, Alta elevates Marco Bicego’s core offerings.
The jewels fit seamlessly into existing collections, providing one-of-a-kind additions.
Many of the jewels unveiled in Geneva focus on specially selected gems, including diamonds, sapphires, iolites, topaz, quartz, amethyst, tourmaline, aquamarine, and pearls.
Bicego said, “It is also important to mention the intense research that is conducted by our gemology team as we pay particular attention to the color, weight, cut and shape as well as the inherent beauty of the gemstones, as we only work with natural, non-treated and non-heated stones.”
The collection is crafted in 18-karat gold. Prices are available upon request.
It is available now through Marco Bicego stockists. Expect new Alta pieces in later summer or early fall.
