Daou Jewellery for Banneya London
Coming from a family of jewellers, we are pleased to say that our new addition, Dalia is all about jewellery.
Here at Banneya we just can’t stop expanding! With a great selection of designers on board already, it only feels right to add a few more to the team. Daou Jewellery is the newest launch here at Banneya, courtesy of talented designer Dalia.
In its 3rd generation, Daou Jewellery is currently heavily influenced by Dalia’s scientific background and nature. All her pieces are both elegant and eye-catching. Dalia’s had a fantastic year so far, she was selected to featured in London Fashion Week’s Rock Vault, and she won New Designer of the Year at the 2016 Retail Jeweller Award; she is definitely one to watch! We’re so lucky to be working with her.
We recently had a chat with Dalia to find out all the details about designing the new Tessera collection for us here at Banneya London and how she feels about being the latest designer on-board.
BL: Where does the inspiration for your designs come from?
DD: Inspirations come out as an amalgamation of many different influences over the years, one idea will link to something I may have seen years before or far-away, or learnt during physics studies. Light phenomena are a favourite reference and the influence of Daou heritage design pops up from time to time. Above all I design pieces with thought to be best shown off and to flatter when worn.
BL: What has it been like relaunching your family business?
DD: Relaunching Daou Jewellery has been challenging and exciting with an added feeling of pride and responsibility. Focusing now on telling the story after reaching a position with the business and confidence to highlight and honour the heritage.
BL: What is your favourite part of designing jewellery?
DD: Definitely seeing people enjoy the finished pieces of fine jewellery, whether Daou collections or bespoke ultra-personal jewels, when designs are created just as imagined and bring a smile to people’s faces.
As a designer – working with Banneya gives me a way to create designs with a different mindset of how they could work in multiple arrays and combinations especially with my tessellating collection of rings.
We hope you enjoy the Tessera Collection by Dalia Daou for Banneya London as much as we did working on it.
