The Andrew Grima Collection

The Father of Modern Jewellery set to feature in September's sale.

Dawsons are delighted to be taking to auction a rather special collection of Grima jewellery within our Jewellery, Silver & Watches sale on 23rd September.


06/09/2021    

This completely exclusive collection of jewels was the property of the late Michel Roux, the famous Michelin starred chef, and have been consigned directly by his family.

Michel Roux and Andrew Grima enjoyed a long friendship dating back to the 1970s and had a mutual appreciation of each others work. The friendship resulted in a number of jewellery purchases and special commission pieces, some of which are included in this collection.

Known as 'the father of modern jewellery', Andrew Grima was a renowned jeweller to many huge stars and also the Royal family; indeed, his work features in many public and private collections around the world.
