Elizabeth Taylor's Case
Asprey made a tan leather suitcase for the London-born film star Elizabeth Taylor. Asprey repurchased the suitcase from Elizabeth Taylor's estate and the suitcase is now a part of the Asprey archives.
Designed by Shaun Leane, the Oak Leaf Earrings with peridot and tsavorites, set in 18ct yellow gold, is inspired by the natural beauty of British woodland flora
Historically, Asprey has been known for jewellery collections featuring naturalistic forms. The Woodland Collection is a contemporary reflection of this, being (as the name suggests) inspired by the English woodland. The oak tree in particular is a recurring motif, both in the form of oak leaves and the use of textures redolent of oak bark.
The collection is produced using a range of highly skilled techniques: micro-pavé features prominently, as does enamelling. The latter is exceptionally challenging to execute on curved surfaces.
