Daou is a fine jewellery design focused brand with a story rich in references leading to beautifully balanced elegant contemporary jewellery designs. Offering collections including statement poetic colourful jewels through to more affordable and playful delicate jewellery pieces as well as specialising in bespoke jewellery client creations for occasions, wedding rings and engagement rings, mens jewellery and everyday luxury.
Award winning London born owner and jewellery designer Dalia Daou has taken her Daou surname meaning ‘light’ as touchstone for creating jewellery which highlights the play of light, its literal and emotional interpretations in designs encompassing references from curvilinear forms, science and geometry, impressionism and Art-Nouveau femininity with selected influences refreshed from a timeless design archive.
Daou jewellery has been revived by Dalia as a third generation jewellery designer after an interrupted international history from the ‘30s, then ‘60s and ‘70s which saw Daou honoured by a royal appointment and by screen sirens such as Princess Grace Kelly and Brigitte Bardot. Combining GIA training with a Physics education and a lifetime of art practise and familiarity with fine jewellery Dalia’s designs are conscious of all the aspects that make fine jewellery a beauty to wear as well as behold.
Dalia was most recently invited by international VOGUE editor Suzy Menkes to speak at the Conde Nast International Luxury Conference 2017, has won the New Designer of the Year 2016, UK Jewellery Awards, and a place on the British Fashion Council Rock Vault. Daou jewellery has been featured internationally in such publications as Vogue, Tatler, Grazia, Wallpaper*, and Country & Townhouse.
“It is an important time now in my business to make assured decisions to grow and to turn the accolades received into commercial success, and I look forward to the pioneer mentorship and critical business analysis to develop and implement the strategy to do so” – Dalia Daou
