Designer Daniel Gibbings creates jewelry that evokes the richness of the Byzantine cultures and Medieval world that lived so long ago. Crafted in high karat gold, platinum and silver, his designs are distinguished by styles found in the etruscian influences in ancient Rome and Greece. Coupled with bezel settings which showcase rare gemstones, along with engraving and textured surfaces give the desired ancient looks that we all admire so long ago.
Daniel’s childhood town of Durban, South Africa certainly ignited his passion for primitive design. After leaving Africa at age 20, he studied jewelry and explored the metalwork of ancient civilizations while training at the Jaffa School of Art in Israel. From there he re-located to England, where he studied at the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art and earned a membership into the City & Guilds of London. Daniel’s extensive travels to India, Burma, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Europe and Israel fuel his passion for global art, history and culture as he hunts for unique gems and slices of history that feed into his designs.
Today, working from his studio, Daniel creates unique designs that work together the old world patterns with his own aesthetic. His inspired creations continue to draw the attention of his industry clients and collectors world wide.
