Whether in his design studio overlooking Lake Geneva, visiting the atelier in Rome or on his boat in the Mediterranean, designer-jeweller Michele della Valle dreams in colour, conjuring up lyrical compositions from a treasure trove of sumptuous gemstones. Rare and precious or unexpected and mysterious, the vibrant grass greens, flaming orange and lilting blues of sea and sky are the colours of jewels for which he has become celebrated among an elite international coterie of collectors and connoisseurs. Still a rarefied name in the world of jewellery, della Valle lives and works in Geneva, where he presents ideas and designs to clients in his appointment-only studio.
