Andrew Grima was the most influential jewellery designer of the post-war period. He joined his father-in-law’s jewellery manufacturing business, H.J. Company, in 1946 and set about innovating with new techniques, changing the emphasis from figurative to organic and abstract designs.
We are excited to present one of his early work, a Vintage gold ring, 1963, London, marked HJ Co with ruby and diamonds.
Considered father of modern jewellery, his shapes were as striking as his materials and designs, this was jewellery that demanded attention and was truly ahead of time.
Across the front are two round cut natural rubies totalling approx .36 Ct and nine old cut diamonds totalling approx .35 Ct set on an amazing structured wire work.
Layers of gold wires make this ring a dramatic example of the revolution in jewellery Modernism design in London in the 1960s.
Artfully hand crafted in 18 Kt yellow and white gold, marked with London, H date for 1963, HJ Co. HJ Co cameo mark in rectangular punch, the H refers to Mr Haller, Andrew Grima’s father-in-law and founder of the firm.
Very good overall conditions commensurate to use and age.
