Designer Spotlight: Dean Davidson

Water Street Jewelers loves to celebrate the talent and diversity of our artisans and designers.  Jewelry is a personal expression of style and Canadian designer, Dean Davidson, has a voice in design that resonates with us and we know will resonate with you too.  Here is Dean's story:

"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 honored 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 palladium, 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."
