The jewellery industry has a wealth of collectors who aren’t looking for pieces of jewellery as objects of personal adornment, they are looking for highly collectable items which will prove to be a good investment.
There are many factors to consider when determining if an item of jewellery can be classed as collectable, the most important being the maker or designer of the piece. An item of jewellery designed by a famous individual or an established brand is seen to ensure ‘quality’ to potential buyers. This assurance is that the piece is produced to a high standard, reflecting the wearer’s status.
There are many collectable goldsmiths and jewellers around the globe and we consider ourselves very lucky to have obtained an item of jewellery by such a maker. The craftsman who produced the vintage diamond solitaire pendant is London’s David Morris. David’s work represents inimitable quality as well as being recognised for the innate beauty of design.
This exceptional solitaire pendant is a fine example of David Morris’ work. One may imagine the pleasure derived by the jeweller on handpicking this pear cut diamond and displaying it so effectively in such a simple design!
