Monsoon emerald and white diamond necklace the brand’s CEO and Creative Director, Jeremy Morris, spent an astonishing two years collecting 168 carats of beautiful, deep-green Zambian emeralds for the piece. This was followed by three months of design preparation, with a further three months needed to hand craft the finished piece at the house’s Bond Street atelier. The remarkable creation combines contrasting cuts and patterns for a refreshing twist on a classic collar design, and also features adjustable clasps that enable it to be transformed from a contemporary choker to a sautoir necklace for a dramatic evening look.
The verdant green emeralds of the necklace are interspersed with shield-shaped, fancy-cut white diamonds specifically recut for the design; their clean-lined angles create a natural foil to the gentle curves of the emerald cabochon drops, while tiny white-gold hinges concealed behind the gemstones ensure perfect shape and flexibility.

The way in which a stone is cut is paramount to its final appearance and value; each precise facet determining how it will interact with light and produce the scintillating shine that only a white diamond can. The master craftsmen of our Bond Street atelier, where all David Morris jewellery is made, are amongst the world’s most accomplished in amplifying a diamond’s beauty.
A diamond ‘carat’ indicates how much a diamond weighs, and therefore its apparent size. The value of a diamond varies according to its number of carats and its rarity, as well as taking into account how it is graded in relation to the remaining of the 4Cs. As a guide, one carat is the equivalent of 0.2g.
Colour, or a complete lack thereof, is an all-important attribute when searching for an exceptional diamond. The most prized white diamonds are completely colourless, or very close to it, and are graded from D at the top of the scale, to Z. With each diamond hand selected by Jeremy Morris, the majority of our diamonds range from grades D to F – the highest standard.
With diamonds exposed to intense heat and pressure during formation, it is incredible that any should emerge flawless. Yet, at the House of David Morris we are adept at sourcing them. The majority of our diamonds are graded ‘Flawless’– they possess no inclusions and blemishes, even when scrutinised under magnification – but we may also select diamonds with minute inclusions that are undetectable to the naked eye.
Our heritage is unparallelled when it comes to bespoke jewellery.
