Not all precious stones are created equal.
Jeremy Morris travels far and wide in search of nature’s rarest, purest jewels for our high jewellery creations.
David Morris meticulously sources its prized stones from the most revered mines, whether it be an extremely rare sapphire from the remote hills of Kashmir, the famed deep-green emeralds of Colombia, or the perfect, glittering clarity of a white diamond. Only when we have unearthed a truly exceptional treasure does it voyage to our London atelier, where it is impeccably cut and polished to reveal its pure beauty before being set into the high jewellery it has inspired.

The legendary career of David Morris began in 1951, when at age 15, he learned the craft of diamond mounting by apprenticing a master jeweller in Hatton Garden, the centre of London’s jewellery trade. After a short stint at London’s Central School of Arts and Crafts, he qualified as a goldsmith in 1959. Setting up his own Hatton Garden jewellery firm in 1962, David Morris quickly became an internationally known name as he and his design partner, Anne Seymour, successively claimed the ninth and tenth De Beers Diamonds International Awards, given annually in New York to promote innovative design.
