Individually set with marquise cut aquamarine petals with a pavé diamond centre, all set in 18ct white gold.
Flora and fauna have long featured in Asprey’s collections, and the quintessentially English Daisy has been a motif our jewellery designers have been using in various forms for decades.
This Daisy Heritage piece is one of the most iconic of such designs, featuring individually set marquise cut stones as the flower's petals. Each is held in place with two perfectly formed V-shaped claws, designed to allow maximum light to pass through the stone. The centre of the flower, meanwhile, is set with a half ball of pavé diamonds, replicating the texture of the daisy's centre.
