A glittering and loyal following

A glittering and loyal following

Coveted by idols and icons from the worlds of movies and music, Stephen Webster jewellery has attracted a glittering and loyal following.

Since its inception some 25 years ago, the craftsmanship, innovation and artistry of Stephen Webster fine jewellery has attracted a loyal following. Coveted by idols and icons from the worlds of movies and music, admirers of the brand include Madonna, Kate Moss, Christina Aguilera, Amber Heard, Johnny Depp, Cameron Diaz, Kate Beckinsale, Poppy Delevingne and Charlize Theron.

It started with Elizabeth Taylor

While working in Santa Barbara, California in the late 1980s, Stephen Webster had his first brush with a bona fide A-list celebrity. Elizabeth Taylor fell for a rose gold ring engraved with flowers and set with a lavender chalcedony, a bracelet was then commissioned by the enamoured, sparkle-loving super star. Similar was to follow, “Soon, Michael Douglas came by,” says Webster. “And then Goldie Hawn.”

Since then, the Stephen Webster signature of avant-garde design and witty, contemporary references has proved a reliably bold statement on the red carpet, in glossy magazines and on film. A key moment came in 1999, during a Phoenix trade show when Webster was contacted by Trish Summerville, then stylist to Madonna, Christina Aguilera and Pink. Summerville was styling the burlesque-themed ‘Lady Marmalade' music video that starred Aguilera and Pink and wanted to feature Stephen Webster’s jewellery. Both singers became dedicated fans, both later commissioning Stephen to make their respective wedding bands. A five-carat diamond and platinum ring with princess cut diamonds and hand filigree detailing for Christina. His and hers platinum bands, engraved with the words “Til Death” for Pink and husband Carey Hart.

In 2000 Webster was commissioned to make wedding rings for Madonna’s marriage to film director Guy Ritchie and in 2008 Christina Aguilera inspired a Stephen Webster diffusion collection, ‘Muse’ and starred in a series of advertising campaigns for the brand. Kate Beckinsale gifted her husband a Clash inspired London Calling ring, because, she said, “it is our song!”

"Mine is jewellery that gets noticed,” explains Webster. “It works well in the celebrity world because particular pieces are larger than life and flamboyant…and so are many film stars and musicians. But I’ve never been obsessed with the glitz and glamour,” he adds. “I’ve been obsessed with being the best craftsman I can be. I apply that to everything I do and I think people understand that. We are jewellers. We're not celebrities”
