A pair of frog design earrings by Michele Della Valle, with a body of circle-cut tsavorite garnet and ruby eyes set in 18k yellow gold.
Della Valle’s work revolves around and celebrates the colours of the natural world: “Nature is my greatest source of inspiration”. Many of Della Valle’s jewellery feature tsavorites. In his own words: “Green and purple is a wonderful juxtaposition”. When creating, Della Valle likes to let “the stones give birth to the design and not the other way around”. Inspired by the tropical flowers he saw in Hawaii, Della Valle declared: “Jewels to last for one night only: [that is] the ultimate luxury”.
