The Jewelry Insider

February 6, 2009

Celebrity jeweler, Stephen Webster, debuted his new line of jewels yesterday in Beverly Hills, and Christina Aguilera decided there ‘ain’t no other man’ she’d rather peddle for.

“Stephen’s designs are little art sculptures, a perfect blend of traditional elegance and modern sexiness,” says Webster’s ice queen, Aguilera.

His pieces have attracted a blue-chip portfolio of other celebs like Cameron Diaz, Johnny Depp, Sir Elton John, Jay Z, Ozzy Osbourne, Nicholas Cage, Michael Stipe, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Pink and the doyenne of diamond divas, Elizabeth Taylor.

“My clients like to wear things that provoke questions,” says the British-born Webster. “They aren’t wallflowers, they’re entertainers – they want to make a statement.”

With talons, daggers, bullets and thorn motifs, Webster’s jewelry has a rebellious yet refined attitude – and as the new Creative Director for London’s crown jeweler, Garrard, his rock and roll sensibilities are the perfect way to bring a modern touch to an otherwise stuffy brand.

It’s time The Queen got a chunky goth cross to add to her modest collection, no?

Webster’s new Garrard lines include: a new women’s collection in a fiery combination of red, black, and white gemstones; a bold men’s range, inspired by the British sportsman, in a mix of black, green, brown and gold; and the recently announced Georgina Chapman for Garrard collection, due to be launched next autumn.
