After an inspirational trip to South Africa, Dean Davidson discovered his love for designing jewelry. Hoping to turn this passion into a reality, Davidson launched his eponymous line in 2007.
Since its inception, the Dean Davidson brand has risen to international prominence, counting Oprah, Jennifer Lopez, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, as fans. Further solidifying his role as an internationally celebrated jewelry designer, Davidson was honoured as the Canadian Arts & Fashion Award’s 2019 Accessories Designer of the Year.
As a truly international brand, Davidson’s designs draw inspiration from his extensive world travels. His collections are purposefully designed in Toronto, Canada and meticulously crafted in a traditional, family-owned workshop of multi-generational master gem cutters in Jaipur, India.
Each piece is cast out of high-quality brass, finished in 22kt gold or rhodium, and set with custom-cut, semi-precious gemstones. The collection’s signature brushed finish - a technique learned by the designer during time spent in Paris - gives a timeless, luxurious, and unique quality to each design.
ABOUT THE MATERIALS
The gold jewelry is cast out of the highest quality brass and plated in 22 karat gold. Our signature brushed finish gives a distinct and luxurious feel to each design.
Their gemstones are individually designed in our Toronto studio to best suit each piece. Master artisans in Jaipur, India meticulously cut, polish, and set each gemstone by hand, which can take up to 6 hours per stone to complete.
The semi-precious gemstones are custom cut from minerals and other natural materials, giving each stone a unique color.
The man-made gemstones are crafted from high-quality materials with a lower environmental impact than their mined equivalents.
