DAVID WEBB Fleur-de-Lis Diamond Detachable Brooch

$22,000

About

DAVID WEBB Fleur-de-Lis Diamond Detachable Brooch in 18k Yellow Gold and Platinum. An exquisitely textured gold design emblematic to David Webb, this bold 'fleur-de-lis' lends a nod to the royal arms of France. The extravagance of its size properly exhibits the skilled fabrication required for this high-relief form. In addition, labor-intensive hand-hammering may look haphazard from afar, however, is rather carefully executed. The brooch's diamond sash is enveloped with impeccably-set diamond pavé and is detachable. Once independent, the clasp is intended to be configured with other David Webb pieces in your collection. Diamond weight approx. 2.25 carats total. Measures approx. 4" in length, 3" in width, 0.35" in height. Gross weight approx. 54 dwts. Includes "18k" and "900 PLAT" hallmarks, Signed "Webb"; circa 1970s.

About the Designer

David Webb

“Women are tired of jewelry-looking jewelry,” celebrated American designer David Webb once noted. In response, he created a menagerie of whimsical animals rendered as rings, brooches, earrings and, especially, bangle bracelets. This playfulness permeates all Webb’s work, which is characterized by brightly hued enamel and color-saturated semiprecious stones like coral, azurmalachite and turquoise, the notable exception being the clear, elegant rock crystal for which he had an affinity.

The North Carolina native apprenticed with his uncle, a silversmith, before moving to New York, where he established David Webb Inc. in 1948. He had no formal training in jewelry design. Instead, he culled inspiration from the ornamental styles of ancient Greece, Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Americas, as well as the traditions of India and China — influences discernible in such pieces as his collar necklaces and talisman-like sautoirs. 

Webb’s first animal bracelet was produced in 1957. His most famous, the zebra, took shape in 1963; its stripes now form the company’s logo. Although Webb died in 1975, his company continues to produce designs drawn from his extensive archives, and every piece is still made in the workshop above its Madison Avenue store.
