Asprey creates a perfect storm with its new diamond jewellery collection designed by Shaun Leane

In a maelstrom of brilliant-cut diamonds and white gold, Asprey has captured the elemental drama of nature in its one-off Storm Suite of jewellery.

Dame Helen Mirren looked resplendent in diamonds from Asprey's new Storm Suite of jewels when she collected her prestigious Fellowship Award at this month's BAFTA Awards.

Designed by Shaun Leane for Asprey, the contemporary diamond collection is inspired by the cyclonic energy of the perfect storm. Created with painstaking intricacy, the four pieces capture the elemental strength and drama of the storm in a beautiful maelstrom of diamonds and white gold.

The large diamond earrings, cuff bracelet and ring were all worn by Mirren to the awards ceremony at the Royal Opera House. Each piece features a complex vortex of diamonds and delicate white gold wires, which gracefully swirl to encompass a central diamond, creating the eye of the storm.

The collection also includes a beautiful statement necklace with an astonishing 457 individual diamonds totalling 24.06 carats.

Her choice of jewellery reaffirms Mirren's commitment to the jewellery house, which is now in its sixth year as the BAFTA Awards' official jewellery partner and Nominees' Party Host.

Prince William, the president of BAFTA, presented Mirren with the award, quipping that he "should probably call her granny" in reference to the actress' lead role in the film The Queen.  

Asprey also dressed presenters Helen McCrory and Juliet Stevenson, as well as supporting actress nominee Sally Hawkins.

Mirren also wore Asprey jewels to the annual Nominees Party held at the brand's flagship store on the evening before the awards ceremony, this time choosing the Daisy Heritage yellow diamond earrings and yellow sapphire and diamond ring.

Jewellery designer Shaun Leane has previously worked with Asprey's in-house design team on the nature-inspired Woodland and Fern jewellery collections.
