Dean spent his early life exploring Canada’s vast and beautiful farmland. Straying from the norm, he shifted from a career in agriculture to founding his own jewelry brand — a choice that would lead Dean to travel the world, and adorn prominent figures in his designs.
Travel is at the very heart of the Dean Davidson brand. Balinese basket weaving, the bamboo forest of Kyoto, and Brazil’s otherworldly sand dunes have all served inspiration for DD collections. With each piece, Dean hopes to capture the wonder and reverence gained from his travels and share it with the wearer.
THE DD STORY
Journey to South Africa
A trip to South Africa ignited Dean’s passion for jewelry design. Inspired by pieces he saw in the markets of Cape Town, Dean began crafting and selling beaded bracelets locally in Canada, before going on to launch his eponymous line in 2007.
Featured in Vogue
After receiving formal silversmith training, Dean crafted his first collection, Freedom, entirely by hand, which captured the attention of Anna Wintour. The collection, featuring the iconic Dune Hoop, starred in a 6-page spread in Vogue magazine’s March 2010 issue.
In 2019, Dean was named the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards’ Accessory Designer of the Year.
In November 2022, the first-ever Dean Davidson retail boutique was established in downtown Toronto.
BEHIND THE ART
Dean Davidson jewelry is designed in our Toronto studio. Every piece is hand-sketched in house and sampled multiple times to perfect each design, producing iconic, signature features like the Castle Ring’s suspended gemstone and our celebrated hand-brushed finish.
Our jewelry is handcrafted in multi-generational, family-owned workshops around the world. The artisans we work with are masters of their craft, with over 50 years experience creating and supplying high-quality gemstones, which they meticulously cut, polish, and set by hand.
From beautiful brushed gold and silver to masterfully hand-cut gemstones, our materials make every Dean Davidson piece unique and long-lasting.
Over the years, DD jewelry has had countless moments in the spotlight, having been worn by an ever-growing list of celebrities that includes Oprah, Kate Hudson, and Meghan Markle.
