The Titanic Necklace
Asprey was commissioned by 20th Century Fox to make two necklaces for the 1997 box office hit Titanic. The necklace was worn at the Oscars by Celine Dion, who won Best Song.
Mouth-blown lead-free crystal barware with hand-engraved octopus design using the traditional diamond wheel method
Asprey’s unique range of engraved glassware exemplifies our championing of hand-crafting techniques. Designed in New Bond Street, each piece in the collection is mouth-blown from lead-free crystal, and the intricate Octopus engraving visible on both the outside and inside of each piece is achieved using a traditional diamond wheel method. Each glass artist must pass an extensive training period to acquire a sufficient level of skill to execute nuanced designs such as these, as a high degree of precision is needed to engrave the glass against a spinning wheel in a fixed position.
