M ichele della Valle’s stunning creations are fashionable and easily wearable both day and night. His style is built around colourful precious and semi-precious gemstones which make his striking, sometimes amusing creations even more prized. Here we look at three sets of earrings, each uniquely created for Sotheby's upcoming online auction, Jewels by Michele della Valle.
1. Pair of amethyst, pink sapphire and diamond ear clips, 'Anemoni'.
The ‘Anemoni’ flower is one of Michele della Valle’s most desirable designs. It is often depicted in various colours and forms, some of which include rings and necklaces which have previously been sold at Sotheby’s. The choice to dissociate the pair of earrings by setting one with pink sapphires and the other with amethysts, shows Michele della Valle’s skilfulness to combine both classical design and contemporary aspiration.
2. Pair of gem set, onyx and diamond earrings, 'Uccellini'.
This pair of earrings set with polished pink tourmalines, peridot and onyx, highlighted with brilliant-cut diamonds is an example of Michele della Valle’s mastery of craftsmanship, demonstrating his skill at turning his poetic imagination into a piece of jewellery.
3. Pair of yellow sapphire, tsavorite and diamond pendent ear clips, 'Limoni'.
The fresh and luminous pair of ‘Limoni’ ear clips is a statement piece by Michele della Valle. The inversely-set yellow sapphires bring an edge to the jewels, making it extravagant and lively.
