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.
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.
