The most incredible pair of gold ear clips by perhaps the most famous modernist jeweller to have lived, Andrew Grima. Formed from 18 karat gold this 'nest' style pair of ear clips are crafted with satin finished gold bars which interconnect, each centring on an octagonal citrine and accented with baguette cut diamonds. The three dimensional clips are typical of the work by Grima in the 1960s and is reminiscent of some of the famed pieces he made for royalty and high society. The rear of the clips are marked for Haller Jewellery Company which is where Grima first began designing his jewels before forming his own company. Fully hallmarked with London hallmarks, the ear clips (and matching brooch) are assayed for 1965. To the rear there are hinged clips which are working well and are secure. Andrew Grima most notably has designed jewels for Princess Margaret, Princess Anne and the Queen, and his jewels in recent years have become extremely desirable. This pair of clips are truly one of a kind and they have all of us at The Antique Guild totally mesmerised.
