British master jeweller Glenn Spiro has revealed plans to open a ‘by appointment only’ salon inside a luxurious Beverly Hills hotel.
Setting his sights stateside, the jeweller will have a private salon under his ‘G’ brand within The Peninsula, Beverly Hills, from March 2019.
G will take jewels from its atelier in the heart of London’s Mayfair, to the privacy of the new salon at The Peninsula, to show the company’s extraordinary creativity and technical mastery in L.A for the first time.
G is renowned for offering consumers extreme privacy while they browse one-of-a-kind jewels, and his expansion stateside will be no different. The by appointment salon will host exhibitions of unique works, only otherwise available to view at the world’s preeminent art fairs at which G exhibits, or at its private ateliers in London and Geneva. The house does not work in collections, so every exhibition will show pieces never shown before in L.A.
Glenn Spiro has always had a huge affection for California, having been sent there in 1992 by Christies as the auction house’s senior director of jewellery. Under his direction Chrisites was established in L.A and held some extremely important jewellery auctions.
During the ten years he lived in L.A, Glenn raised a young family and also met his longtime friend Sharon Oberfield. As an important collector of his work, Oberfield was instrumental in his decision to once again show in LA and will be working alongside him to establish G in the region.
