The jewelry designed by Chris Davies exhibits a rare fluidity and thoughtful use of color. He may spend months perfectly matching stones or pearls to have the right elements at hand to realize his designs. With the eye of a couturier, he looks not only at the hue and saturation of the metals and gems, but also the subtle patterning and reflectivity of his materials. Davies draws from the exacting traditions of Charles James, Halston, and Christian Dior, as much as from the way Suzanne Belperron used color and hardstone. His jewelry considers the play of light, flexibility, and color as essential elements of a beautiful and wearable creation.
