Lollobrigida is to sell some of her jewellery in Geneva on May 14, 2013 with part of the proceeds going to help stem cell research, auction house Sotheby's said. Designed by Italian creator Bulgari in the 1950s and 1960s, the items include pearl and diamond earrings and a 19.3-carat diamond ring. Both pieces are valued at between $600,000 and one million dollars (465,000 - 775,000 euros). The 85-year-old star of 'The World's Most Beautiful Woman' and 'Come September,' one of Italy's best-known actresses, says she wants to devote herself to sculpture and 'a sculptor doesn't need jewellery', the Sotheby's statement said.
