VANITY FAIR / by Francesca Grima


"Part of the ulterior motivation of getting my wife something nice from Grima is that she, being a sensitive woman alive to the unsaid signals that flicker between people who have been married for almost 25 years, can get me something nice from the great London jeweller by appointment to the Swinging Set of the Sixties.  Indeed, given the time it takes to make things properly, I hope that by now work is well advanced on a unique Grima cigar cutter, about which I have been dropping hints so heavy you would need to check them in as hold luggage"
