For 30 years, David Marshall has been creating jewelry for some of London’s top jewelry houses and special commission designs for private clients—and last month, he opened his first boutique, at 42 Davies Street in London’s posh Mayfair neighborhood, to highlight his own designs. The two-level store features an array of his diamond and gemstone designs on the main level, including new designs using jade, green tourmalines, seed pearls, blue sapphires, and tanzanite. Prices start at $1,600 for classic diamond pieces and go beyond $1 million for elaborate custom designs. The lower level is designed for private appointments, where clients can meet with the designer to create bespoke pieces starting at $10,000. The pieces are made in his workshops in London’s jewelry district.

Trained as a bench jeweler, Marshall carefully oversaw the crafting of his boutique, employing the British cabinetmaker Jonathan Sainsbury to create the bespoke wood cabinets and furniture. Marshall decorated the store with a subtle color palette and defining elements including an ornate Victorian mirror, crystal chandeliers, and an inviting Champagne bar for clients to enjoy while browsing the jewelry.
