According to an article in Philly Style Magazine, Marco Bicego began his training as a gold artisan at his father’s atelier in Veneto, Italy. There, he learned to successfully manipulate gold, and create natural pieces that are bold and luxurious. Once Bicego launched his jewelry line in 2000, his artful pieces can now be find in over thousands of the finest jewelers and boutiques around the world, including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and renowned independent boutiques such as Bernie Robbins Jewelers.

PNK ELEPHANT Makes A Splash on South Street

Affordable, classy, and stylish are not always words you would put together when you think of jewelery that is priced at $25 or less, but that is exactly what you’ll find on South Street at PNK Elephant.
Last month I attended the concrete and mortar store opening of PNK Elephant on South Street at 504 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147
The brain child of Blair Sandlain, who always liked the color pink as well as the beauty of elephants, joined with her friend “Cherry” Kijafa Frink, to open the store together.
Assisting the duo with the ribbon cutting is Philadelphia Eagles football player Michael Vick.
A few of his team mates and Cherry’s friends stopped by for supports, but also to pick up a few things. Jon Dorenbos told me that he encourages his wife Julie Dorenbos to buy from PNK Elephant, which has an online presence too, as the jewelery is very affordable and looks so classy. They have a men’s line too.
Special guest DJ K Black was in the building on the 1 & 2’s. Delicious hors d’oeuvre’s prepared by Philly’s own Christina’s Steakhouse; Cocktails were flowing…The” Cherry Kijafa” cocktail was a hit! There were also the most delightful PNKelephant custom accessory addict’s cupcakes from Ilene Miriam in the building. In addition to the high spirits and great networking, we offered our guest soothing spa manicures to compliment the experience. (Source)

(Disclosure to the family. I apologize. That evening I attended an event and it rained. My note pad fell in the water and many pages were smeared otherwise I would have your names. Thanks for understanding. I will include your names if you send them to me.)

Get off the horn and get on over to PNK Elephant and get glamorous
PNK Elephant is planning another store they tell me. Hopefully it’ll be near you.
