Chairman of the board of de Grisogono, Elmar Wiederin, shares: “As a founder of this inspirational brand twenty-five years ago , we are thankful to Fawaz Gruosi for his incredible passion and creativity. Over that time de Grisogono has undergone an incredible journey, transforming from a niche high jewellery maison to the world recognised high jewellery player it is today.
“In line with our board vision and plan, de Grisogono is now entering the next chapter of its story.”
Led by Celine Assimon, the brand is continuing the create unique designs, whilst also adapting to new consumer demands.
