Strong, powerful, fearless. International Women’s Day celebrates women’s achievements, whilst calling for a more gender-balanced world. Here at Stephen Webster, we look to inspirational women who embody this spirit and champion female empowerment.

 “The term “I feel empowered” very quickly started to be used by the women wearing the Crystal Haze ring. It’s difficult to say exactly why that was the case, it could have been down to the abundance of quartz, the volume of the piece, the enhanced colour of the under-layer stone magnified by the facets on the quartz or the fact that the ring was a no-nonsense piece worn by strong no-nonsense women”. - Stephen Webster

“The single most empowering piece of jewellery we have ever made has to be our Classic Crystal Haze, Middle finger ring. When we launched the collection in the mid 90’s, the establishment bulked at the idea of a quartz and opaque coloured stone, cut in an unconventional way, being considered as fine jewellery. This seemed odd to me because my influences had been from the couture jewellery atelier of the deco period. Everything changed when Madonna bought one for herself, very quickly the ring became a must have, almost entirely being bought by women for themselves, they didn’t need to wait for a man to buy it.”  –Stephen Webster
