Extra information
Grosse - In 1907, at the famous goldsmith town of Pforzheim Germany, Heinrich Henkel and his brother-in-law Florentin Grosse established Süddeutsche Gold-und Harrbijouterie-Fabrik Heinrich Henkel und Co (South-German Gold and Hair Jeweller) specialized in producing jewellery and watch chain made of woven and plaited hair.

The company is still active today and to celebrate its 110th anniversary, Grosse held a world exhibition tour in Pforzheim, Japan and Taiwan, showing its precious vintage jewelleries and were highly praised by the media.

One of the most famous collaborations Grosse had was with Christian Dior who highly appreciated the quality of the work and concluded a partnership with Grosse in 1955 under his strong request.

Over the next 50 years Grosse was responsible for the production of Christian Dior Bijoux and had the right to sell it and sent out numerous masterpieces to the world. Even in the history of Dior, such a long term license cooperation was unprecedented.
