Spring is on it’s way

During the Christmas break I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to some spectacular places in Kenya. The colours and nature really inspired me to create pieces that reflect the wonderful golden colours of the landscape, the greens and many many more colours.

I wanted to create textured rings with multiple gemstones to represent the intense rich colours and variety of those areas. Especially as many of the golden citrines originated from Kenya.

This Wine coloured Ring is inspired by the sunset on the lakes, features five Garnets of different shapes.

While looking at some stones in Kenya I was captured by the intense colour of this Salmon pink Tourmaline. I’ve decided to mount this spectacular stone in a simple textured Ring to highlight the gemstone.

This 18k gold vine necklace sits nicely on the neck and can be worn with anything. The irregular discs move and catch the light as you move.

Hope you enjoyed looking at the new pieces as much as I enjoyed making them!

If you have any queries please email me or contact me via social media, I would be happy to answer your questions.

Best, Disa

We are a very small team and have been maintaining high levels of hygiene in the workshop since hearing of the virus. I am still working from my studio and my staff are working from home as of today to reduce any risks. We have been cleaning the studio regularly and sanitising jewellery as we package it for post.

We are still able to make and send work out so please do be in touch. We will be posting items online in our web-shop and on social media, you can order via www.disaallsopp.com or via Instagram and Facebook.

Wishing you all the best and thank you for your continued support at this difficult time.

Disa is always happy to work with clients’ on bespoke pieces. Most recently she has made this statement ring for a client who wanted to mark a moment in time and create a new family heirloom.

This stunning piece was handmade in her London studio using diamonds from a pre-owned ring. Disa combined these with a baguette cut Kenyan Aquamarine on a wide lightly melted band. The positioning of the Aquamarine creates a contrasting line with the tapering diamonds.

The client is over the moon with her new Disa Allsopp original and will be able to pass this down to the next generations.

If you would like to speak to Disa about your own ideas for a bespoke item please email her on disa.allsopp@gmail.com.

Disa looks forward to welcoming you to her stand!

This year Disa has worked on some stunning commissions, including this bespoke textured 18k gold Marquise diamond.

Disa made a range of one-off wide 18k gold reticulated rings, each one different to the last. The client fell in love with one of these rings and asked to have her inherited diamond added to it. The marquise shape of the white diamond was something a bit different. To highlight its shape Disa incorporated it in to the melted texture band by placing it on the edge of the ring. This creates an overhang effect that draws the eye down the finger when being worn.

Many of Disa’s pieces have a sculptural element to them, something the client loved. It is details like the positioning of the stones, rough edges and textures that set these wearable sculptures apart.

If you are interested in discussing options for bespoke work you can contact Disa via disa.allsopp@gmail.com.

Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday!
