David Webb the self-starter made it to New York and by 1948, at the age of 23, he opened shop. Manhattan was fast and fun: daytime visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, dinner parties with clients, and in 1962 he became First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s choice to make the official Gifts of State.
By the end of the 1960s, the smart set and all of Hollywood wore their David Webb animal bracelets. Animal lover Elizabeth Taylor was a devoted client, and even wore her diamond-studded lion and pearl jewelry in her films.
These wolf earrings are a typical example of Webb´s bold use of color and dimension, as well as precise attention to detail.
