The origin

Stephen Webster plunges us into the work of Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, for a precious journey into the seabed. With his " Jewels Verne " collection, the designer takes inspiration from the changing world of the ocean to unveil aquatic-like pieces, playing stones to suggest marine references. Fantastic creatures that populate the azure expanse or vegetation with curious volumes, it explores between glittering fish necklaces, pendants in the shape of prodigious scampi, dangling earrings, and rings with opalescent reflections all the richness of the marine fauna and flora.

Design

A reed as an incarnation of the fascinating hammerhead shark, a brilliant tribute to this extraordinary shark that fascinates as much as it scares. Stephen Webster gives it body through an 18-carat white gold bracelet, available in three versions, adorned with diamonds, rubies and rose gold or sapphire. Hand-made, it features geometric square cut diamonds, which are applied to reproduce the sparkling, beaded skin of the impressive fish as it emerges from the water.

The creator

Based in London, Stephen Webster, creative director and founder of the eponymous brand is distinguished by an inventive approach to jewelry. Inspired by the arts, music, literature, fashion, or pictorial arts, he breathes audacity, contemporaneity, and originality into his creations. For forty years, he has been mixing the tradition of savoir-faire with London's Hatton Garden, and a passion for gemology. The result ? A sharp style, details have the rare finesse, a universe composed of modern interpretations of the collective imagination.
