Duke Fulco di Verdura began designing jewelry in 1920s Paris with Coco Chanel, for whom he created his signature Maltese Cross Cuffs. After venturing to America and opening on Fifth Avenue in 1939, with the financial backing of Cole Porter and Vincent Astor, Verdura quickly gained a following among New York's best dressed, including style icons like Diana Vreeland and Babe Paley, and Hollywood screen legends such as Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich. Today Verdura continues to create jewels from the Duke’s archive of nearly ten thousand designs and is widely recognized among collectors and jewelry cognoscenti for its bold but understated 'chic.'

Andrew Grima was one of a handful of British designers who revolutionised jewellery in the early 1960s. Unlike most of his contemporaries,  he didn't learn his trade at art school, being entirely self-taught and having never worked at the bench. He considered being a pure designer to be an advantage; his ideas were never confined by technical ability, only by imagination. By the mid 1960s Grima had become the doyen of British jewellery design - the Royal and society jeweller of the day. He is the only jeweller to have been awarded the Duke of Edinburgh Prize for Elegant Design and his service to industry was recognised with The Queen’s Award for Export.

Comtemporary fine Jewellery artist Cindy Chao established her eponymous brand CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel in 2004, motivated by a desire to break boundaries between art and jewellery. Believing that every piece of fine jewellery should be a miniature work of art, she is dedcated to adopting the ancient European lost-wax technique. This long-lost artisanal skill, essential for offering Chao’s creation an organic, sculptural and architectural characteristic, has allowed her to revolutionise the way fine jewellery may be created, perceived, and appreciated.
