In a previous article we noted that David Webb was a prolific American jewelry designer whose work was creative, innovative, beautifully executed and very popular. Among his clients were celebrities of the screen and public life, such as Elizabeth Taylor, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, & Barbra Streisand.
Not all of his designs were manufactured contemporaneously – David Webb died young, at 49, leaving a body of design work numbering in the tens of thousands that continued to be manufactured after his death in 1975, the business continuing under the direction of his partner Nina Silberstein. In 2010, the company was purchased by a New York Jewelry conglomerate and no longer produces the old designs, preferring to introduce more current designs.
This pendant was probably produced while he was still working.
