The House of David Morris unveils a series of one-of-a-kind pieces incorporating truly remarkable gemstones, carefully collected over the years, into visionary designs for the modern high jewellery collector.
It is not unusual for CEO and Creative Director Jeremy Morris, like his father before him, to hold onto the most exceptional gemstones for many years before they may finally find their place within one of his unique jewellery creations.
Today, the magnificent new Empress choker is a prime example of this patient approach; a long wait rewarded with a remarkable, singular piece. The starting point for this creation was an astonishing collection of iridescent natural pearls – over 240 carats in total – gathered together by Jeremy Morris over decades and from across the globe. Remarkably, these pearls of various shapes and sizes each possess the same pure, silvery-white hue, surely destined to be united in one spectacular piece. Having amassed such a trove of complementary pearls, Jeremy Morris then sought inspiration from the Mughal Empire, which covered much of modern-day India, where pearls were coveted and worn by Emperors and Empresses alike.
