The dynamism of the 1960s was reflected in the bold, colorful and whimsy jewels. Designers responded to the dynamic and changing era with large-scale, dramatic pieces, often in bright, saturated hues. These pieces are just as stylish and visually arresting today as they were when first created. They expressed creativity and individuality. The important makers of the era include Van Cleef and Arpels, Cartier, David Webb, and Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany.
David Webb’s style is larger-than-life, whimsical, sensual, and absolutely unmistakable. With an emphasis on bold, yellow gold and colored gems, he often incorporated animal motifs and unexpected stones like coral, jade and turquoise to create truly unique and expressive pieces. David Webb jewels are perfect for everyday wear to formal events.
