COCKTALES by Stephen Webster
A HEDONISTIC HISTORY OF THE RIGHT-HAND RING.
The words ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Stephen Webster’ are pretty much INSEPARABLE when describing the ultimate mix of fine jewellery combined with totally unforgettable evenings.
Held at the London Flagship Salon, the exhibition combines the opulence, glamour, and hedonism, of the Cocktail Ring, with signature cocktails from Stephen Webster.

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll Ring in 18ct yellow gold with a central reverse-cut intaglio Citrine acceented with colourless Diamonds.
"The ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’ ring dates back to the turn of the last century. At the time we were well and truly established as the ‘go to’ fine jeweller with edge and attitude. This should not be confused with the numerous jewellers producing a silver product, based around dark and gothic imagery, on the whole catering to a single tribe of die-hard, heavy metal head-bangers and the band members of Motörhead.
As fine jewellers we never entertained the possibility that our rock and roll pieces
would be created without the same exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail that we applied to everything we produced, even if that detail did contain the devil. The slightly ironic ‘Rock Star Ring’ was the first of our glam rock pieces. Somewhat to our surprise, the original was fought over by Ozzy, Elton and, interestingly, David Beckham. Seeing a bigger opportunity we followed the ‘Rock Star’ with the ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’ ring. The oversized cocktail ring was made in heavy yellow gold, featuring a unique reverse intaglio cut Citrine cross accented with brilliant-cut Diamonds."
