George Weil, an illustrious unknown

Unknown, this London jeweler made his mark in the 1960s and 70s. Regarded as an innovator, he created sculptural jewelry for such celebrities as Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, and even the Queen of England. In 1979, George Weil closed up shop to devote himself entirely to art.
