SUPPLIER FOCUS: Quirkily unique ethical wedding jewellery from Daniel Darby
12th November 2016
I don't know about you, but when it comes to jewellery, I personally love the elegantly modern, Fairtrade and quirkily unique. So when I discovered Daniel Darby’s collection I was seriously smitten.
I think Dan’s inspiration and ethos behind his collection is just perfect. He really believes that the wearing of jewellery should be a joyful experience that’s made through the choice of truly beautiful materials worthy of the special moments the piece celebrates. I could definitely wear some of his pieces on a daily basis, but they would perfectly adorn brides and grooms equally well on their special day, with that timeless quality that will stay with you forever.
Dan says “I can think of no better materials than Fairtrade gold and ethical gems to represent couples sharing their future together!”
Working from his small London studio, hand crafting truly elegant modern pieces for men and women, using ethical materials and Fairtrade Gold, Dan has produced a stunning ready-to-wear collection of timeless jewellery which includes wedding and civil partnership rings, cufflinks and earrings - modern classics handmade using 18ct rose gold, yellow gold and white gold.
I particularly like these stacking scale rings worked in all the different colours of gold.
So often I find the men are left out when the word ‘wedding’ is broached in the jewellery world and I love that Dan has concentrated on both the masculine and feminine in equal measure, offering these chunky masculine rings and a great selection of cufflinks for the groom.
While Dan’s ready-to-wear range can be bought online, you can also commission him to make a bespoke piece that is utterly unique to you, or that matches a ring you already have … for instance, this beautiful sapphire wedding ring was designed to sit next to, a give a modern twist, to the antique sapphire engagement ring.
Visit Dan’s website for more information, or contact Dan to commission your own unique wedding or engagement ring.
