David Webb

Known as “America’s Quintessential Jeweler,” David Webb was a creative visionary whose bold, beautiful statement pieces have been highly sought-after by everyone from socialites to movie stars. Long after his passing, Webb’s legacy continues to make an impact on the jewelry and fashion worlds.

When Webb was just nine years old, he was introduced to metalwork and quickly developed a passion for jewelry-making. He eventually apprenticed at his uncle’s factory, and at 17, he moved from South Carolina to New York City to pursue his craft full-time. At 23, he opened the doors to his flagship store on Manhattan’s Madison Avenue. It would go on to become one of the greatest luxury jewelry houses in America. Just two years later, his jewelry was featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Best known for his animal designs, Webb’s jewelry was recognizable for its decorative, bold use of color and impeccable attention to detail. His design influences ranged from his boyhood memories of the South to his explorations of faraway places and ancient cultures. He excelled in his use of yellow gold, diamonds and semi-precious stones to bring the creations of his imagination to life.

Webb’s iconic jewelry has been worn by everyone from Hollywood A-listers to American royalty since the brand was founded in the late 1940s. Some of his clients included Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly, Estée Lauder, Lana Turner, Jackie Kennedy and even generations of Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. Elizabeth Taylor featured four pages of David Webb jewelry in the photo book of her famous collection, “My Love Affair with Jewelry.” And Diana Vreeland, the legendary editor of Harper’s Bazaar, was rarely seen without her favorite David Webb zebra bangle.

More recently, you’ll spot stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Eva Mendez, Jennifer Garner and Cameron Diaz wearing Webb’s jewelry to Hollywood parties, award shows and galas.

The foundation for the Single Stone brand was laid in 1988 by founder Ari Madilian, who started his career working with his mentor learning about diamonds and the jewelry industry. A year later, Ari’s wife Corina joined him in designing and producing jewelry using vintage diamonds. Once the allure of the vintage diamonds captured their hearts, there was no going back. In 2008, they decided to launch the Single Stone collection as a full brand.

All Single Stone jewelry is manufactured by hand in Los Angeles and is made specifically for the center stone and features old-cut stones from the late 1800s to early 1900s. Deriving inspiration from the vintage pieces in their collection, Single Stone’s new designs incorporate both vintage and modern elements for a charming look that’s fresh and classic at the same time.

Single Stone pieces are designed to become a part of the wearer’s everyday life, and to be dressed up or down with effortless sophistication. They’re meant to be worn by someone who wants a unique piece of jewelry and who appreciates the beauty of diamonds that were cut over 100 years ago. This jewelry is timeless and sophisticated with an edge, and is as individual as the wearer itself.

Bold, brightly colored gems such as turquoise make for an unforgettable red carpet look. Don’t believe us? Just check out these stunning turquoise drop earrings by Sutra Jewels, which were recently worn by “This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz. 

Vintage-Inspired Jewels

The Roaring Twenties are back with a bang. The Gatsby era’s glitzy, light-hearted feel is reflected in these high-impact geometric designs. You can either pair your vintage-inspired pieces with an equally glamorous ensemble or let the jewels shine against a minimalist LBD. 

Double Cuffs

Coco Chanel did it in the ‘30s and Diana Vreeland did it in the ‘60s. Now the trend of wearing identical cuff bracelets is back, led by Blake Lively in a pair of glowing, jewel-encrusted green cuffs at last month’s Golden Globes.

Statement Earrings

We think there are few looks more elegant than a pair of statement earrings worn against a bare neck. It’s the best way to instantly add a dose of style to a formal or cocktail look without going overboard. 

Pearls

Classic and timeless, pearls always make us think of style icon Audrey Hepburn. They’re so easy to wear, and they go with absolutely everything. Up the Audrey factor by pairing your pearls with a black sheath dress, some sleek pumps and an elegant updo.
