NEW YORK, NY.- The Extraordinary Jewelry of Alexandre Reza, a public exhibition highlighting both the historic and contemporary works of the Paris-based maitre joaillier, has been announced by Sotheby’s with a November debut in New York. The exhibition will comprise approximately 25 select vignettes exploring the house’s library of jewels that remains hardly unrivaled in size, breadth and quality, often surpassing even those of legendary royal collections. From New York, the exhibition will travel to Sotheby’s global offices in 2014, with planned locales including London, Doha and Beijing.

The Extraordinary Jewelry of Alexandre Reza will feature some of the world’s rarest gemstones, mounted by skilled artisans in masterful settings and unique designs. Suites consisting of over 102 carats of untreated Colombian emeralds in classical design join Ceylon sapphire and diamond earrings of over 148 carats total weight – each vignette capturing the essence of the house’s dedication to offering the remarkable gemstones in exquisite, peerless designs. New pieces designed by Olivier Reza, son of now-retired Alexandre, include earrings featuring old mine Colombian emeralds set in baguette diamonds and a natural pearl necklace with perfect color, luster and shape.

The collection will be on public view in New York from 2 – 14 November 2013, concurrent with Sotheby’s autumn auctions of Contemporary and Impressionist & Modern Art. The exhibition will provide a rare glimpse into one of the world’s largest and most impressive private inventories of gemstones and fine jewelry.

Olivier Reza said: “My family and I are honored to partner with Sotheby’s and share both the Alexandre Reza archives and new creations with jewelry collectors around the world. Carefully curated, this exhibition will showcase my father’s legacy as a jeweler, and the work that we create today in his honor. Our passion for connecting high-quality craftsmanship with superb raw material, combined with impeccable design will forever remain the cornerstone of our house.”

David Bennett, Chairman of Sotheby’s Jewelry Division Europe & Middle East, commented: “Alexandre Reza’s legacy forms an integral and important part of the history of post war jewelry. Sotheby’s is honored to showcase his work through this special exhibition which will include many of the most important jewels and parures created by Alexandre Reza during the last forty years, featuring spectacular diamonds, natural pearls and superb colored gems. We are particularly thrilled to support his son Olivier as he carries the Reza name to the next generation of collectors and connoisseurs with his exciting new designs.”

The Extraordinary Jewelry of Alexandre Reza opens will be open to the public for viewing from 2 – 14 November at Sotheby’s New York.
