Overview

A fabulous stylised brooch by Andrew Grima, the famed London jeweller of the 1960s and 1970s. Crafted as six textured gold leaves, accented with pear-shaped sapphires and aquamarines and a single pear-shaped diamond. A close friend of HRH Princess Margaret, Grima produced a 'lichen' brooch for the Princess. Subsequently, after catching the eye of Prince Philip, he produced a brooch similar to the one offered here for Her Majesty The Queen, which she still wears today. (see image). Barbara Hepworth, Jacqueline Onassis, Ursula Andress and Jean Shrimpton are just a handful of the other superstars that adored the unique, unmistakable style of Grima.

London hallmarks for 1963 with French import marks. Makers mark HJco.
