Like the meaning behind the name, ‘place of many streams,’ Magerit draws inspiration from many cultures – past civilizations, themes in architecture and mythology – to create exquisite pieces of art which are as unique as the people who wear them. Magerit’s jewellery blends its designers’ creativity and originality with the sophisticated, handcrafted finishes of each individual piece, giving rise to unique and exclusive works of art. Magerit takes pride in making top-quality artisanal jewellery.

The inspiration behind the creation of the jewels is rooted in Marco’s Venetian origins and the natural settings surrounding his territory. He has always believed in quality and in the secret of Italian jewellery. The Marco Bicego brand combines old world tradition with contemporary design and conveys the typical values and details of Made in Italy. The distinct uniqueness of the timeless jewels can be described through artisanal craftsmanship and imperfect shapes, always made in 18 carat gold.
