The World of David Webb


The David Webb workshop proudly sits above our Madison Avenue Flagship Boutique, and provides the house with unparalleled access to jewelry as it is being created. Every David Webb jewel is meticulously handcrafted by our master jewelers, from stone setting and gold hammering, to hard stone carving and enameling.



The Archives are the epicenter of David Webb, rich with brand DNA and heritage. The continual vocabulary of the house emerges from the drawings, the sketches, the renderings, and the historic editorial features, among many other features of the archive. Through these materials, we are able to authenticate pieces, and constantly mine our collections for creative ideas.
