Tonight I attended a private preview of an exhibition of the extraordinary Jewelry of Alexandre Reza at Sotheby's. One of the greatest jewelers of the 20th century, Reza is known for using some of the world's rarest gemstones in jewelry, which has brought his name to the pantheon of Parisian haute joaillerie houses. His house has been recently revived by Reza's son Olivier, who designs jewels to the same exacting standards as his now-retired father. His contemporary jewels was shown side by side with archival pieces by his father. I loved these vintage glamour pieces.
