The Goldsmiths’ Company to host De Vroomen exhibition

The Goldsmiths’ Company will host a special exhibition, designed to honour five decades of the work of Dutch goldsmith Leo de Vroomen and British jewellery designer and artist Ginnie de Vroomen, later this year.

The showcase, which will be held in the iconic Goldsmiths’ Hall building, will see more than 100 pieces of De Vroomen jewellery brought together with sketches reflecting the creative process, as well as Ginnie’s vivid paintings inspired by nature and the urban landscape.

De Vroomen is well known for its bold use of enamel and was at the forefront of its revival in fine jewellery.

Made an Associate of the Goldsmiths’ Company in 1983, Leo has had a long-standing relationship with the Company.

Four De Vroomen pieces form part of the Company’s Contemporary Jewellery Collection and a previous De Vroomen retrospective was staged at Goldsmiths’ Hall in 1991.

Leo explained: “I am passionate about our jewellery. To create something innovative, dynamic and beautiful without compromise is always challenging but the real satisfaction comes from seeing it worn by the right woman with confidence and pleasure.”

The exhibition takes place from April 12–July 26, 2017 and will be open Monday–Wednesday, from 10am until 4pm. Entry is free.
