Lavan Designer Jewellery was established in Buckingham, England in 1993 by David and Katherine Weinberger and features David's work as a specialist in handmade gold and silver jewellery.
David studied art and jewellery design in Israel and over the past 20+ years, David has successfully used his background as an artist and sculptor to evolve the same love of shape and texture, sensitivity to colour and composition into beautiful and contemporary jewellery. Each piece of jewellery is handcrafted at his studio using traditional techniques and the latest technology.
David Weinberger's unique jewellery collections are renowned throughout the UK for intricate contemporary and classical designs combining gold, sterling silver, precious and semi precious stones, synthetic opals and pearls.
Man-made simulated opals are manufactured in two ways. Some are cut from opaline silica grown in a laboratory, taking over a year to grow and "come into their colours." This slow growth results in a similar structure and material balance as natural precious opals, but with increased durability and structural stability.
Lavan jewellery is sold at exhibitions and shows around the UK, as well as in many UK retail outlets.
