David Webb Gold Diamond Bracelet

$60,000

About

An exceptionally well constructed and wearable bracelet signed David Webb, probably dating from the 50's or 60's. Minute balls of 18 karat gold are aligned in rows around the wrist, interspersed with diamond quadrants evenly positioned around the jewel. The gold balls are soldered onto gold panels, each of which are closely aligned side by side on the frame. We cannot emphasize to you strongly enough how magnificently this bracelet is made - it's a tour de force of design and construction (please see our close up photo below). Total diamond weight approximately 5 carats, inner circumference 6", weight of bracelet 175.6 grams, 112.9 DWT. We particularly love the weight of the jewel when held in the palm, and the smoothness of the surface as you run your hand over it.

About David Webb (Designer)

“Women are tired of jewelry-looking jewelry,” celebrated American designer David Webb once noted. In response, he created a menagerie of whimsical animals rendered as rings, brooches, earrings and, especially, bangle bracelets. This playfulness permeates all Webb’s work, which is characterized by brightly hued enamel and color-saturated semiprecious stones like coral, azurmalachite and turquoise, the notable exception being the clear, elegant rock crystal for which he had an affinity.


The North Carolina native apprenticed with his uncle, a silversmith, before moving to New York, where he established David Webb Inc. in 1948. He had no formal training in jewelry design. Instead, he culled inspiration from the ornamental styles of ancient Greece, Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Americas, as well as the traditions of India and China — influences discernible in such pieces as his collar necklaces and talisman-like sautoirs. 


Webb’s first animal bracelet was produced in 1957. His most famous, the zebra, took shape in 1963; its stripes now form the company’s logo. Although Webb died in 1975, his company continues to produce designs drawn from his extensive archives, and every piece is still made in the workshop above its Madison Avenue store.
