Michele Della Valle's "Fragole" bracelet is one of the lots up for sale.


GEMS IN GENEVA: Sotheby’s Geneva will begin holding regular jewelry auctions from June this year. The auction house will debut the new “Fine Jewels” sales on June 1 with a selection of 82 creations by Geneva-based Italian designer Michele della Valle, known for his colorful works featuring flora and fauna.

The sales, to be held at Sotheby’s new Geneva premises, will complement the house’s biannual “Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels” high jewelry auctions, offering collectors the chance to acquire fine jewelry pieces at a broader range of price points, Sotheby’s said.

Key pieces from the first sale have guide prices ranging from $3,000 to $50,000.
