Each piece of jewellery has its own history of treasured memories.
Dalila Daffara, in her own words, was a strange child. She wasn't interested in dolls but played with jewellery instead. Necklaces, rings, bracelets, anything that contained beautiful jewels drew her attention. For this reason, she knew that she wanted to dedicate her life to these stunning objects from an early age. When she was only fifteen, Dalila Daffara started studying gemmology, and after graduating she went on to finish all the important, necessary courses in Italy. Subsequently, she started to travel the world to learn from experts in the field and to visit as many fairs as she could. Back in Italy she became the store manager at an exclusive jeweller whilst also teaching at the Italian Gemological Institute. Her lifelong obsession with gemstones has turned Dalila Daffara into a true expert. At a single glance, she can distinguish the important characteristics, such as the cut of the stone, its clarity and how the entire piece of jewellery was made. Dalila Daffara approaches her auctions as if she were putting together a display window which is meant to attract visitors. That's why she is always looking for objects with that elusive 'WOW' factor, which will fuel the passion of any true enthusiast.
