Abstract:

"Jackie Kennedy compared him to Cellini, the Duchess of Windsor said he was today’s Fabergé, and The New Yorker described him as “the new meteor around town.” David Webb was the go-to jeweler in the 1960s and 1970s, and David Webb: The Quintessential American Jeweler is the official survey of this important designer. His devoted clientele have included Lee Radziwill, Diane von Furstenberg, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbra Streisand, and Gwen Stefani. This elegantly designed volume—filled with original photography of the jewelry, Webb’s own sketches and drawings, and more than sixty images from leading fashion magazines—will become the definitive reference book for collectors, dealers, and curators, and those who swoon at all that glitters." --Publisher description.
