US$548.12per item

About

'Russian Roulette' is a set of intricate and expressive bar accessories inspired by the cupolas of Moscow's Saint Basil's Cathedral. A range of crystal glassware etched and gold engraved with Webster's smoking gun motif, handcrafted in the UK. Each glass is individually hand-blown and engraved complementing the Russian Roulette bar tools, presented in yellow gold and rose gold. Smoking Gun Martini Glass - Smoke coloured martini glass etched with smoking gun detail. Please enquire for your exclusive price if your delivery country is outside of the United Kingdom. The luxury ‘Homeware’ collection has grown out of intriguing pieces that were often created initially as bespoke commissions. The collection demonstrates the degree to which Stephen Webster’s inimitable design aesthetic and commitment to traditional craftsmanship lends itself to all manner of products, not just fine jewellery. The sometimes rebellious, always innovative ‘Homeware’ collection has grown to include glassware, barware, knives, cutlery, vape pipes, tea infusers and mugs. ‘Professional Chef Knives’ and ‘Tequila Lore,’ where precious and non-precious metals feature prominently, best illustrate the scope and translatability of Stephen Webster’s skilful signature artistry.

About the Jeweler

Stephen Webster

Iconic British jeweler Stephen Webster MBE shook everything up when he introduced his Crystal Haze rings in 1995.

The jewelry landscape was almost barren during the 1990s. Fashion dictated minimalism, and stars treading the red carpet wore Armani gowns in earth tones with very few sparkling accessories. Elsa Peretti’s little diamond solitaire necklace for Tiffany & Co. was in vogue. And the gold Cartier Panthère watch was the only item many female stars wore.

The seismic shift was sparked in 2000 when Madonna attended a party for the premiere of her movie The Next Best Thing wearing the Crystal Haze ring. She had purchased it directly from Webster, to whom she’d been introduced by a friend. Pictures of the star singer’s outing popped up seemingly everywhere — on her index finger, Webster’s Crystal Haze ring was so much bigger and bolder than the styles most celebrities were wearing at the time. The press coverage snowballed in the months and years to come as other celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera and Pink, were spotted in the now-immediately recognizable jewel.

This massive success came to Webster when he was in his 30s, not long after he launched his label, in 1989, but the design was the culmination of a lifetime of experience. At the tender age of 16, Webster found his calling when he toured Medway College of Design in Rochester, England, with a career counselor. He was immediately attracted to the jewelry department, which was “noisy, slightly grubby and lit with orangey, naked flames.” After graduating, he worked for a few years as a bench jeweler in London and the resort town of Banff, in Alberta, Canada, finally settling in Santa Barbara, California.

The luxurious, laid-back style of the city, nicknamed the American Riviera, opened Webster’s eyes to the possibility of a kind of jewelry different from the traditional designs that defined the field in England. He began working with semiprecious stones, an integral element of the Crystal Haze line. The Santa Barbara community embraced the colors and was open to lesser-known gems in fine jewelry, such as apple-green chrysoprase, lavender chalcedony and Peruvian pink opal.

The idea for the Crystal Haze ring came to Webster when he was having lapidaries in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, cut rock crystal into special shapes for big brooches. He wanted to create statement jewels in which two gems cut into a narrow arc would curve over the finger in a gold ring. The contour and connecting of the stones required a couple of years of development, some innovative thinking and plenty of expertise.

Today, Webster’s stores dot the globe, and he has a long list of illustrious collectors. The many lines he has produced over the years — from Vertigo and Dynamite to Fly By Night and Jewels Verne — display the same qualities that characterize Crystal Haze: bold, edgy designs, beautifully manufactured.
