Daou is a fine jewellery design focused brand with an inspiring story rich in references leading to designs juxtaposing elegance, fantasy, heritage and science references to wonderous light phenomena.
Third generation, award winning jewellery designer, London-born Dalia Daou has taken her surname meaning ‘light' as touchstone for creating poetic jewellery which highlights the play of light, its literal and emotional interpretations in designs blending science and art references with selected influences refreshed from a timeless design archive.
Daou jewellery has been revived by Dalia 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.
