Today, Jeremy oversees the jewelry making process from start to finish at the David Morris atelier, which is found above the elegant flagship store in London’s charming New Bond Street. “The process of creating sometimes starts with a single stone that almost designs itself,”
recounts Erin, “or inspiration comes for a range that unfolds, much like with our rose-cut collection”. Ideas are sketched and then arranged on paper, the stones are laid out in a mould and the metal is taken and carved. A microscope is used to set each diamond individually because the beautiful micro-set work is so detailed.
Erin and Jeremy are constantly traveling the world looking for inspiring jewels. “While in India we bought wonderful diamond beads, and in Jamaica we found some opulent conch pearls in pinks and oranges.” Always in search of rare and natural pearls as well as antiques, the couple attend jewelry fairs in Asia, Basel and the rest of Europe.
The history of jewelry making is something “we take a serious interest in, for our craft is more than a thousand years old.” Erin and Jeremy also pay close attention “to how women dress and what they are looking for, since our work is first and foremost for them”. “The David Morris woman is strong, independent and alluring, she will catch you off guard”, says Jeremy. Uniting directional modernity with design inspired by years of tradition, these exquisite pieces have a timeless appeal.
