Michele della Valle: Jewels and Myths

  • An exquisite collection displaying the work of one of the world's leading jewellery artists
  • A pictorial autobiography offering an insight into the influences that make Michele della Valle's style so personal and distinct

Famed for his appreciation of rare and unusual gemstones, Michele della Valle is unquestionably one of the leading jewellers at work in the world today. His idiosyncratic style pays tribute to his greatest inspiration, nature, which continues to influence his displays of bravura.

Celebrated among the elite, Della Valle's autobiography, Jewels and Myths beautifully displays the jeweller's wealth of exquisite and alluring work through a series of photographs that perfectly capture his talent for artistry. The juxtaposition of shocking colours, from emerald green to piercing blue, flaming orange to ruby red, work together to produce a work of art that is meticulous in detail, whilst at the same time eliciting a seductive, feminine elegance.
