Davril Jewels is delighted to be presenting the stunning gold and diamond ‘Symphony’ necklace for auction at a ‘Best of British’ gala celebration hosted by the Lord Mayor of London at The Guildhall in London in September. The evening will be raising money for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal which supports a number of worthwhile causes including the City Music Foundation, a new charity established to support talented young musicians in the early stages of their careers through performance opportunities, mentoring and financial support.
The theme for this very special event is the ‘Best of British’ and the necklace brings together the quintessential values of British craftsmanship, showcasing the wealth of skill and talent emanating from Hatton Garden, the hub of the British jewellery industry.
Handmade in Davril’s on-site workshop in Hatton Garden, the necklace features a central 1ct briolette diamond, crafted ‘en tremblant’. This represents the first ever briolette diamond, known as The City, given to James I by the merchants of the City of London over 500 years ago. The fluidity and motion of the 18ct white gold wire work and its organic 3-dimentional design is enhanced with the scattered droplets of black and white diamonds totalling over 1.5cts.
Having been very involved with The City of London for many years and a keen supporter of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, Davril founder, Daniel Caspi, commented “we are delighted to be associated with the Best of British event and very proud of the gold and diamond necklace to showcase the excellent skills that we have within the jewellery industry. The evening is supported by Sothebys and the Financial Times and is anticipated to raise over £500,000 for its chosen charities”.
Daniel Caspi, founder of Davril, was Chair of London Jewellery First, the organisation that is credited with securing Government funding of £3m back in 2008/9 to support the London jewellery industry which included the introduction of London Jewellery Week amongst other projects to benefit the industry.
