Happy Tuesday ladies. I’ve always been a bit of a jewelry nut and I came by it naturally. My grandmother loved and collected it, my mother loved and collected it, and I’ve passed that tradition on to my daughter. When I visited Vanessa in Vancouver last fall, we had a blast visiting with her friends, getting our first Hydra facial, dining out, and of course shopping… all the pre-pandemic joy that I’d sure love to have right about now! Today I am introducing the Dean Davidson Jewelry Collection.
On one of our shopping excursions, we discovered a jewelry collection by a Canadian designer called Dean Davidson. The Vancouver Nordstrom had a fairly small collection but enough to have us wanting more. Vanessa bought this gorgeous pair of pearl and brushed gold earrings before I could get my credit card out…I have trained her well:)
We both loved them – they’re simple, elegant, organic shape is a modern classic. I tried unsuccessfully to steal them upon my departure but no luck.
Fast forward to this past month, I discovered the brand again while browsing on Instagram, in particular, I saw these Ipanema earrings which are amazing. I adore the way the stone sits in its setting. I’ve never seen anything quite like this!
I asked a question on the Instagram image and connected with Dean who offered to send me a few pieces to try! It turns out these amazing earrings are part of the DD Icons collection which are worn time and again as red-carpet staples. These instantly-recognizable pieces represent both the origin and evolution of the Dean Davidson brand.
Dean Davidson discovered his love for designing jewelry after an inspirational trip to Africa and launched his line in 2007. Dean’s collections are designed in Toronto, Canada, and meticulously crafted in a traditional family-owned workshop of multi-generational master gem cutters in Jaipur, India. He was honored as the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards 2019 Accessories Designer of the Year. Each piece is cast out of high-quality brass and finished in 22 k gold or rhodium and set with custom-cut semi-precious gemstones.
The Mar collection is named after the Portuguese word for sea and features vibrant, ocean-hued gemstones evocative of glistening seas in the midday sun.
What I love about these pieces, is they can be dressed up for a formal affair (if we ever get out of the house again!), and they also pair well with a simple T-shirt and jeans. The stones are particularly beautiful – they have a lot of fire and life in them.
I thought each pair of earrings I put on was my favorite until I saw my daughter borrow and wear these. They are the exact color of our eyes and one of my very favorite stones!
The collection’s signature brushed-finish is a technique Dean learned during his time in Paris. I love how it gives a soft, timeless, luxurious, and unique quality to each design. I’ve seen his pieces on many celebrities – including Oprah, the Duchess of Sussex, and Jennifer Lopez.
Currently, these collections can be found in over 300 luxury boutiques and department stores across the globe so I am thrilled to share them with you.
