Directors notes
David Thomas (1938 - ) is one of Britain’s finest master goldsmiths. A contemporary of Andrew Grima and John Donald, his jewellery epitomises the bold, abstract style of the 1960s and 70s. He graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1961 and set up his own studio, predominantly working to commission. That same year his work was included in the International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery held at London’s Goldsmiths’ Hall. Since then his jewellery has been exhibited worldwide and pieces can be found in the Victoria and Albert Museum as well as important private collections.

Thomas, David

“I like the scale of jewellery, I like the fineness. And I like diamonds, diamonds really do make everything else look better.”
