“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,” said Olivier Reza in a statement. “Carefully curated, this exhibition will showcase my father’s legacy as a jeweler, and the work that we create today in his honor.”
