Michele Della Valle, who was born in Rome, began designing costume jewellery at the age of 16. During a trip to Burma in 1976, Della Valle purchased his first stone. In 1976, he worked for a year at Fürst jewellers in Via Veneto, Rome, which was then the representative of Harry Winston. In 1978, Della Valle opened his own workshop in Rome's Piazza Di Spagna and began travelling regularly to Asia in search of precious stones. This was the beginning of a collaboration with Bulgari on special orders and his recognition as a new designer by a clientele of film stars and opera singers throughout Italy. In 1987, he moved to Geneva and developed a line of jewelry which now bears his name. Michele della Valle is unquestionably one of the leading jewelers at work in the world today. He is famed for his appreciation of rare and unusual gemstones and it is his quest for and discovery of those gems that forms the heart of every piece he makes. "I am continually traveling in pursuit of that rare stone full of charm. I love to travel, I love to find..." Della Valle is celebrated for his great appreciation and application of color, and it is this above all else that is most admired in his work: "Rare and precious or unexpected and mysterious, the vibrant grass greens, flaming orange and lilting blues of sea and sky are the colors of jewels for which he has become celebrated." Vivienne Becker.

Note: Briolettes are drop shaped, multi faceted stones. They are unique in the sense that they lack a girdle, a feature all other gemstone cuts have and by which they are usually set. Consequently, briolettes are used as beads by drilling them or as pendants, being suspended from their tips

Note: Paraíba tourmalines was first discovered in 1989, they are among the world’s most prized gemstones. These rare gems are renowned for showing intense blue-green colors. Paraiba tourmalines are extremely rare brightly coloured copper-bearing/cuprian elbaite tourmaline that shows intense blues and greens. It was discovered by an avid gem prospector named Heitor Dimas Barbosa in the late 1980s in the Batalha mine, in the state of Paraíba, Brazil, hence the name.
