Bond fever has gripped the city, with posters for new release Spectre popping up everywhere on billboards across London. Bond fans can get a slice of the action by purchasing everything from a limited Spectre Omega watch to a Sony Xperia Spectre mobile phone and a Gilette Flexball Razor- but what about the brands that have been there from the start? Bond Street jewellers David Morris can claim the title of 'the original Bond Girl' jeweller, having provided precious pieces of fine jewellery to some of the most iconic bond girls. Thanks to a connection to set designer Maurice Pinder, David Morris was able to lend jewels for films such as Diamonds are Forever, The Man with the Golden Gun, The World is Not Enough, and perhaps most memorably, Teri Hatcher in Tomorrow Never Dies.
Hatcher wore her delicate diamond scoop necklace in a love scene with Pierce Brosnan, sparking immediate widespread interest in the piece. Suzette Morris, David Morris's wife commented: 'She looked wonderful and we had hundreds of people phoning the studio and coming into the shop to enquire about it."
Established in 1962, David Morris has five decades of experience in high end jewellery, selling to everyone from royalty to international collectors. The brand's New Bond Street boutique offers hand crafted jewellery made using the finest stones.
