Jewlery belonging to the Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida, who became a leading sex symbol in the 1950s and 1960s, has sold at auction for $4.9 million. The auction held in Geneva set a record for pearl earrings, auctioneer Sotheby's said.

A pair of diamond and natural pearl earrings sold for $2.37 million, beating the previous figure of $1.98 million for natural pearl earrings by Bulgari, owned by the late actress Elizabeth Taylor. Other prize items of Lollobrigida's collection included a Bulgari necklace and bracelet combination and a Bulgari ring featuring a 19.03-carat cushion-shaped diamond. Each sold for $776,000. The 85-year-old actress, who was raising money for advanced stem cell research in Italy, said, "Jewels are meant to give pleasure and for many years I had enormous pleasure wearing mine.Selling my jewels to help raise awareness of stem cell therapy, which can cure so many illnesses, seems to me a wonderful use to which to put them."

The jewlery formed part of Sotherby's 'Magnificent Jewels and Nobel Jewels' auction, held in Geneva after going on display in London, New York and Rome. Overall, the auction of over 600 gems and jewlery fetched $78.2 million.

Come September Review


Good
Is there irony in Rock Hudson zipping about on a scooter in an attempt to protect the virtue of a gaggle of American girls being pursued by four horny guys? (Of note: Sandra Dee is one of the girls, and Bobby Darin is one of the guys, and this is where they met.) The convoluted romantic comedy has Hudson as a wealthy American who spends his Septembers at his plush Italian villa. He arrives early this year, only to find his business partner has turned the place into a hotel from October to August. A romance (with the lovely Gina Lollobrigida) ensues, and the younger kids prove they can find a little love in the sun amongst all the good times. Silly and unfulfilling, it's nonetheless a reasonably good time.
