The Art & Antiques Fair Olympia returns to London from 26 June with a varied collection of high quality jewellery from the distant past to the present day. Featuring pieces from names such as Oscar Heyman, Cartier, Boucheron, Patek Philippe and Van Cleef & Arpels, the Fair offers an unrivalled selection of rings, broaches, necklaces and watches to suit all tastes. 

The selection of pieces by Oscar Heyman will be spotlighted by Wimpole Antiques to tie in with the publication of Oscar Heyman: The Jeweller’s Jeweller, created by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), to underscore the undisputed influence Oscar Heyman has on the luxury jewellery industry. The book is a reminder to jewellery enthusiasts that their pieces are works of art in their own right that will stand the test of time.

Known as ‘The Jeweller’s Jeweller’, Oscar Heyman is better known in the inner circles of the design elite than by the wider public. In the past, the company has eschewed the limelight and left the glory to their clients, some of which include Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston, Van Cleef & Arpels, Shreve, Crump & Low and Black, Starr & Frost. 

Pieces from Oscar Heyman that will be available next week in London include a fine diamond broach in the shape of Hayleys Comet, circa 1950, and a ring that clusters yellow diamonds alongside white diamonds and pink and blue sapphires.

The remarkable selection of pieces will be on sale at The Art & Antiques Fair Olympia, the UK’s largest and most established art and antiques fair, taking place from 26 June until 2 July at London’s iconic Kensington Olympia Exhibition Centre – an annual destination for more than 25,000 discerning visitors from across the world.

  • Beautiful pendant watch by Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe

This spectacular, rare original 18k solid gold pendant watch was designed by one of Sweden’s most important 20th century silversmiths and master jewellers, Vivianna Torun Bulow-Hube for Georg Jensen Denmark in about 1970.
