The new high-end jewelery signed by the London Maison David Morris ♦ ︎
Start from nothing and become a jeweler of kings and queens. It is the story of David Morris, who recently presented his new high jewelery pieces in Paris. In the French capital where, among other things, he also opened a boutique in Rue Saint Honoré.
Among the great jewels shown during the week of haute couture, there are earrings with opals and tourmalines, and bracelets with the rare conch (pronounced konk) pearl.
Jewels to admire before being worn. And who knows if any of these jewels will end up in the hands of some owner with blazon. David Morris, who founded his own Maison in 1962, in fact, produced a series of famous pieces, including the crown of Miss World, jewels for James Bond films and, above all, several pieces commissioned by royal families.
A reputation that David Morris obtained starting out as an apprentice at the age of 15, after having just graduated as a goldsmith at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London. Now the Maison is directed by her son Jeremy, who instead studied fine arts in London and followed five years of apprenticeship with jewelers of Place Vendôme and a diamond supplier from Antwerp. Jeremy Morris also had the task of creating jewelery for a series of celebrities, from designer Gianni Versace, to Barbra Streisand, Keira Knightley, Oprah Winfrey, Yasmin Le Bon, Catherine Deneuve, Kate Winslet, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Adele.
