Jewellery belonging to iconic film star Gina Lollobrigida is to be auctioned in Geneva on Tuesday.

The actress epitomised glamour in the 1950s and '60s and acquired an impressive jewellery collection throughout her lifetime.

The auction is expected to raise millions of dollars which Lollobrigida says she plans to donate to stem cell research.
