“I’m really interested in only one thing: making jewelry.“ David Webb
The New Yorker described him as “the new meteor around town” who became the go-to jeweler for society tastemakers, Hollywood stars, and entertainers. Born in Asheville, North Carolina, David Webb came to New York in his late teens where he opened shop in 1948 and quickly made a name for himself. He excelled at jewelry having a distinctive American sensibility, expressing an “anything goes” optimism. Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, the Duchess of Windsor and the fashion world were among his many clients.
David Webb: The Quintessential American Jeweler is the first monograph on this important designer who developed a style that was uniquely American. Published in 2013, on the 65th anniversary of the company, David Webb: The Quintessential American Jeweler brings together author Ruth Peltason’s three years of intensive research with powerful photography by Ilan Rubin and striking design by Takaaki Matsumoto. The result is a sumptuous, in-depth survey of one of American’s most important jewelers, which further establishes David Webb in the pantheon of the 20th century’s finest jewelers.
