Style On: A Stylist's Take On David Webb

Launch Slideshow

When I want to find jewelry that is different, has its own feel and look, and is incredibly well made, I always pull from David Webb.

While putting the accessories together for Madonna’s Superbowl halftime performance I was challenged to also find items that fit the Roman/Egyptian theme for Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. to wear. In an over-saturated jewelry market, I knew that David Webb would have pieces that were big enough to stand on their own on stage.

Although David Webb himself died in 1975, he left behind 40,000 original sketches to be admired and designed. Luckily for us, the new guard at David Webb actually gets what made the brand so special in the first place—his funky design aesthetic. Their jewelry is unmatched by any other—from their amazing animal cuffs, to their big chunky gold necklaces, every piece draws you in for its amazing construction and exclusive feel. Check out my five favorite pieces in the gallery, along with original sketches!
