Jewel of the day: William Welstead diamond necklaces

If someone were to buy me the middle necklace in the photo below, I would not say no. Welstead describes his approach to stones thus: “He does not recognise conventional gem stone hierachy and chooses stones only for beauty and charm.The collection encompasses Indian diamonds, emeralds from Zambia and Burmese spinels. Antique stones also play an important part in his work. Many of the stones are native cut and close to their natural origins in the earth. His designs focus on simple and elegant use of these beautiful stones All the jewels are hand made in English workshops with an emphasis on craftsmanship.”

You can see tantalizing glimpses of his jewelry on his web site here. For prices, to view his collection and to commission a special piece, contact the artist through his site.
