David Morris jewellery
David Morris jewels have been worn by a number of Bond girls. David Morris’ friendships with his client Roger Moore and Maurice Binder, the famous title designer who worked on 14 James Bond films, resulted in the tradition of David Morris jewels featuring in Bond films including Diamonds are Forever (1971), The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), Teri Hatcher's necklace and ring in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) and jewellery worn by Denise Richards in The World is not Enough (1999).
Pictured on the left are the necklace and ring worn by Teri Hatcher (as Paris Carver) in Tomorrow Never Dies. Teri Hatcher wears the “Bond Necklace” of platinum-set white diamonds, in an intimate love scene with Pierce Brosnan – and is ultimately assassinated in it by one of the villain’s henchmen. The appearance of the necklace in the film prompted many clients to come to David Morris' New Bond Street store in London requesting copies of the same piece.
David Morris was the only jeweller asked to exhibit with the 2012 Barbican’s exhibition, Designing 007- 50 years of Bond, where several pieces from the Bond films are on display, including Teri Hatcher's necklace and ring.
