Ready for more bright cheerfulness from Michele della Valle? I wouldn’t wear these together unless you’re starring as Titania in a particularly well-funded production of Midsummer; they’re all rather high-voltage (in the best possible way).
These carnation brooches are the most realistically-designed pieces we’re looking at today. Everything else is somewhat stylized. I think these are just beautiful.
The two carnation brooches are set with a total of 23.58 carats round white diamonds. The red flower is set with round spinels weighing 2.97 carats. The lovely green stems are detailed in cabochon green tourmaline segments. Both brooches are set in white gold and titanium.
I think these would look lovely worn together or separately.
Each of these fabulous earrings is designed as a flower, the petals pavé-set with circular-cut pink sapphires. Each center is set with a cushion-shaped ruby within a border of brilliant-cut diamonds. I think they’re marvelous.
And finally: the bright, glamor of Michele della Valle’s “Ivy” necklace. (I’m pretty sure you can tell where the name came from).
The flexible ivy branch is set with ten oval emeralds, which weigh a total of approximately 30.00 carats, and highlighted by leaves set with circular-cut emeralds (adding an additional approximate 35.15 carats of emeralds). The necklace is mounted in yellow gold and is further embellished by approximately 2.20 carats of diamonds. Pretty fabulous. Not subtle.
The brooches were listed in Sotheby’s December 2010 Magnificent Jewels sale. The earrings were listed in Sotheby’s November 2012 Magnificent Jewels sale and the necklace was listed in Sotheby’s April 2013 Magnificent Jewels and Jadeite sale. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
