BRIT WIT: The British jewelry house David Morris, which is known for its statement pieces, has teamed with the young London jeweler Philippa Holland to create a capsule collection of quirky fine jewelry. Inspired by iconic figures from Britain’s history, the new collection features bangles, rings, and earrings all of which have quotations from well-known Brits worked into the designs. A bangle crafted from 18-carat white gold is set with hundreds of tiny diamonds that spell out the words “All You Need Is Love” around the circumference. Meanwhile, an 18-carat rose gold ring is set with the word “Temptation,” in diamonds, a nod to Oscar Wilde’s famous line: “I can resist everything except temptation,” from Lady Windermere’s Fan. The collection will launch in December at the David Morris boutique on London’s New Bond Street. The jeweler, which was founded in 1962, is run by Jeremy Morris, a son of the founder, and his wife Erin. Next year, the company will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
