John Donald is a British jewellery designer whose work is strongly identified in the 1960s and 1970s in London. Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother purchased works by John Donald in the 1960s.

Examples of Donald’s work are held in the collections of Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the collection of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths.

In his half-century as a working jeweller John Donald has been feted as an idealist, a pioneering designer, and as a craftsman. His work captures the late twentieth century ideals of glamour and modernity. This brooch is a good example of his work and is in its original case.
