Andrew Grima was the most influential jewellery designer of the post-war period. He changed the way people perceived jewellery not just in Britain but around the globe and consequently is widely regarded as the father of modern jewellery. Entirely self-taught, he joined his father-in-law’s jewellery manufacturing business, H.J. Company, in 1946 and immediately set about innovating with new techniques and changing the emphasis from figurative to organic and abstract designs.
Since Andrew’s death in 2007, his wife Jojo and daughter Francesca continue the tradition of creating highly original handmade jewellery. A limited collection of 20 to 30 pieces is created each year as only a handful of goldsmiths, most of whom have been employed by Grima for over 40 years, possess the skills required to make these unique pieces. Jojo and Francesca also accept requests for bespoke designs and offer a large selection of vintage pieces.
