For the past five years, Andrea Bragg has been the store owner. However, Bragg has worked at Forsythe Jewelers since 2001 in some capacity, so her expertise runs the gamut, and she gladly shares her knowledge with everyone who enters, whether browsing or buying.
“We are a unique island store in that we carry the top jewelry brands that are typically only found in big cities or big stores,” Bragg said. “People are very surprised to see the selection.”
Forsythe really does have something for everyone, whether your style is golf, tennis, dinner in or out, or simple cocktails. “We work hard as team to assess what each client is looking for, and then we find it for them,” Bragg said. “The experience here is warm, happy, and inviting. We meet new friends daily and some even become like family.”
Events are a big part of how Forsythe Jewelers gets to know both visitors and full-time residents, and there’s one November 19-21 that you’re not going to want to miss: a Marco Bicego Trunk Show.
“Marco Bicego is sending a collection of pieces that will only be available at this event,” Bragg said. “This will be an opportunity to see special pieces otherwise not available, and we’ll have some one-of-a-kind pieces at this show.”
Since the launch of his eponymous jewelry line in 2000, Marco Bicego has redefined the phrase “everyday luxury” with sensuous, extraordinarily beautiful jewelry, which blends Old World Italian hand craftsmanship with tradition, passion, and imagination. His uniquely crafted pieces are exceptional; each makes a statement, yet each is also personal enough to wear every day.
“The inspiration behind the creation of my jewels is rooted in my origins and the natural settings surrounding my territory,” Bicego said. “I have always believed in quality and in the secrets of Italian jewelry. The distinct uniqueness of my timeless jewels can be described through artisanal craftsmanship and imperfect shapes, always made in 18 karat gold.”
Bicego began his training as a gold artisan at his father’s 50-year-old atelier in the Veneto region of Italy. His instincts were refined at the workbench and led him to create unique, multi-textured items both beautiful and unexpected. He became known for his designs that blend urban-inspired lines with natural forms that transform gold into spirals and hand-engraved beads.
“All my creations must be manipulated by hand in order for them to preserve a unique and luxurious experience,” Bicego said.
Bicego’s success showcases his contemporary flair with his respect for tradition in collections that remain fresh due to his zeal and creativity. He will, without a doubt, continue to lead the fine jewelry industry with his unique positioning between precious jewelry and today’s everyday luxury.
