A collection of Grima jewellery from the 1970s sold in a recent Birmingham jewellery sale for a sparkling £18,000 earlier this month.
Andrew Grima was a renowned jeweller who created many historic designs in the sixties.
He received many accolades for his jewellery, including a Duke of Edinburgh prize for Elegant Design and The Queen’s Award for Export. Grima became one of the London’s most established designers during the mid-21st century, and Grima jewellery items are becoming increasingly popular at auction.
The two desirable Grima pieces of jewellery sold at:
- A 1970s 18ct gold sapphire and diamond cluster ring (above). Estimate £1,800 – £2,600. Sold for £7,145.60.
- A 1970s 18ct gold diamond dress ring (below). Estimate £7,000 – £9,000. Sold for £10,718.40.
Alex Duffy, Jewellery Specialist at Fellows Auctioneers, said: “We are thrilled to have sold the Grima rings for such great prices. We had expected a lot of interest, so it was exciting for us watching the customers competing and the prices soar in the saleroom. It’s truly a privilege to be able to sell jewellery as rare and unique as these fantastic pieces.”
