DESPINA

The Despina Collection of 2015 celebrates  imperfections, cracks letting in light…

THE

INSPIRATION

Nicola Rees Mumford at the Despina Launch Party 2015

‘There’s a crack in everything,

that’s how the light gets in.’

Leonard Cohen

This year’s collection celebrates what gives gemstones their character and intrigue; the cracks and flaws that let in the light.

Ancient sky’ features diamonds cut before the use of lasers to remove the flaws.

Sea stones’ and ‘Ruby ridge’ are gems in their uncut form.

It is the flaws in ‘Royal velvet’ which make the stones look like velvet not glass.

‘To banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check exertion, to paralyse vitality.’ John Ruskin

The more I work with gem stones the more I discover it is their imperfections which give them personality and expression, and I hope you will too.

As Salvador Dali once said, ‘Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it!’
