If you are on the look out for vintage designer jewellery, John Lewis isn’t the first place you would look. But as of Monday 30th April, it should be.

The company is selling 1,500 vintage pieces of Dior, Burberry and Grossé for a limited time. The archive collection belongs to Bert Grossé, owner of the former Grossé jewellery factory in Germany, which was purchased by Christian Dior in 2004. From 1955 until its takeover, Grossé was the only manufacturer in the world licensed to make Dior jewellery. It also produced its own line and had a 7-year contract with Burberry.

Mr Grossé kept hold of his favourite pieces, but has now decided to sell, fearing his descendents might fight for them after his death. Cash, it seems, is easier to split. The collection includes items from the 1960s to 1990s, with prices ranging from £19 to £499 – so something for everyone.

You can find it in the following shops:
John Lewis Oxford Street: 30th April – 13th May
John Lewis Brent Cross: 21st May – 3rd June
John Lewis Liverpool: 11th June – 24th June
