Didier Ltd., London
Since 2006, Didier Ltd. has specialized in jewels designed by leading modern masters, painters, and sculptors who are recognized internationally for their art, in addition to working in jewels, which often comes as a surprise. Currently the gallery has over 300 jewels by over 150 different artists that date primarily from the 1940s to 1980s. With this historical perspective, the gallery is uniquely placed to acquire only the finest examples and does not deal in reissue or pieces produced by artists’ estates. After being neglected for forty years, this overlooked expression of the artists’ oeuvre is now regaining international recognition. In addition to the LA Modernism Show, Didier Ltd. has participated in the some of the most prestigious design fairs in the world, including Design Miami, TEFAF Maastricht, and New York’s Winter Antiques Show.
