1998 John Donald Cabochon Pink Tourmaline, Diamond and Gold Necklace



A pear shaped cabochon pink tourmaline, diamond, and 18 karat gold nugget flake necklace with melted piercings, by British jeweler John Donald, 1998. The center pink tourmaline measures approximately 1.25" x 1.1" x 0.5". The necklace is stamped JAD, London hallmarks dated with the letter "y" for 1998. Comes with original box. This piece is featured in jewelry book, John Donald Precious Statements by McNidder & Grace. John Donald is a designer and goldsmith born in Surrey, England. Originally a student of graphic design, he moved to London in the early 1950s to study metalsmithing at the Royal College of Art. Setting up his first workshop in 1960, he established himself as one of London’s premier jewelers, and later opened retail stores in London and Geneva. In 2015, he published an autobiography, Precious Statements, and continues to create work by commission. Notable clients include Princess Margaret and Queen Elizabeth II. Donald highlighted gold through the use of granulation, melted wavy tubes, nugget flakes, textured cubes, and fine wire. Inspired by the splashes of solder left over from a plumber’s work, Donald developed an innovative “bead and cup” technique of pouring molten gold into cold water; the resulting irregular, hollow- centered shapes lent a geometric yet naturalistic orientation to his work.
