Monte-Carlo, Monaco—For over half a century, the magical city of Monte-Carlo hosts Television Festival that brings together beautiful and talented people from all over the world. This year, the 57th Monte-Carlo Television Festival sparkled with stunning jewels by Alex Soldier. The legendary Emmy-winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo shined at the Golden Nymph Awards & Gala in Alex Soldier's Symbolica earrings and bracelet, paired together with a beautiful Coronaria brooch. Incredibly talented French actress Odile Vuillemin, known for her powerful performance in Claude-Michel Rome’s “L’Emprise”, chose to compliment her ensemble with gold necklace from Alex Soldier's Moneta collection and Sun cuff from Alex Soldier's Patterns collection.

I am delighted that our Festival continues to develop each year and this dynamic 57th edition has drawn together so many people from around the globe to celebrate television in all its forms.
