    Michele della Valle
    Born in Rome, Geneva-based jewellery designer Michele della Valle began designing costume jewellery at the age of sixteen. Michele purchased his first stone and showed it to the famous stone dealer Roger Varenne during a trip to Burma in 1976, and was inspired by him to open his own workshop in 1978. He then started travelling to Asia to source for precious stones and during this period he began a collaboration with Bulgari. In 1987, he moved to Geneva and developed a line of jewellery which is now under his name.

    Michele della Valle has established his iconic and distinctive style and is one of the most sought-after contemporary jewellers in the world. Influenced by his personal passion for opera and his early experience as a dramatic tenor, his jewellery features ballet, Italian opera singers, and Hollywood stars, from Marilyn Monroe and Katharine Hepburn to James Dean. Taking inspiration from nature – soft, silky, light feathers and ethereal flowers - Michele della Valle combines musicality with colour, line and rhythm, representing them perfectly in his creations.

    Michele della Valle
    珠寶設計師Michele della Valle出生於羅馬,居於日內瓦,自十六歲起開始設計裝飾珠寶。 Michele在1976年的緬甸之行中購買了他的第一顆寶石,並展示給著名的寶石經銷商Roger Varenne且受其啟發。同年,他在羅馬工作,後來於1978年開設了自己的工作室。在尋找寶石的過程中,他開始前往亞洲,並在此期間與寶格麗合作。1987年,他搬到日內瓦,創立了一系列以他名字命名的珠寶。

    Michele della Valle以其標誌性和獨特風格,成為世界上最受歡迎的當代珠寶商之一。由於他對歌劇的個人熱愛以及作為歌劇男高音的早期經歷,他的珠寶受到芭蕾舞、意大利歌劇演唱家以及好萊塢明星瑪麗蓮 ∙ 夢露、凱瑟琳 ∙ 赫本、詹姆斯 ∙ 迪恩的影響,Michele della Valle從大自然中獲得靈感 - 柔軟如絲,輕盈的羽毛和飄逸的花朵,他將音樂性與色彩,線條和節奏相結合,並在其作品中完美展示。
