Berkeley Grimball, Fine Art Jewelry

Berkeley Grimball has been designing and creating jewelry professionally since 1975. He founded and ran Grimball Jewelers, a full-service custom jewelry store, from 1985 - 2018. A few years prior to closing the store he had the idea to incorporate grenadilla wood from unplayable clarinets into his pieces because the circle is the perfect shape and everything looks good in black.

Now you see the transformation of instrument to art. Berkeley takes the black onyx look of the wood, sculpted and polished and combines the metal keys with sterling, gold and gemstones. What once made beautiful music, is transformed into beautiful art.
