Arnaud Bamberger Returns to the Jewelry Arena Working With Glenn Spiro

THE COMEBACK KID: Arnaud Bamberger, who worked at Cartier for more than four decades, is back in the fine-jewelry business as honorary chairman of G, the company that belongs to London-based artisan jeweler Glenn Spiro. Bamberger will join G in November, WWD has learned.
The 72-year-old Bamberger has long been a fixture on the London jewelry scene, having spent the last 25 years of his Cartier career as managing director for the U.K., later taking up the role of executive chairman and then honorary chairman of the jeweler’s U.K. division.
He was also a familiar face on the social and sporting scenes, hosting a series of events during the year, including the annual Cartier-sponsored polo match, which he’d watch alongside Queen Elizabeth and other British royals.
Bamberger has known Spiro since the jeweler was an apprentice and called him “a rare talent in our industry. For many years Glenn has quietly supplied many breathtaking gems to several top houses around the world.
