Ambassador Necklace Competition

About this project

A competition was launched in 2017 to design a diamond necklace for the Goldsmiths’ Company.
The brief specified the piece had to be contemporary, a ‘show’ piece, large and sculptural.
Daphne’s winning design was inspired by images of Cities at night and was hand made using ruthenium plated white gold and 270 baguette, square and round brilliant cut diamonds.
the piece can be seen at the permanent collection of the Goldsmiths’ Company.
