This David Webb “brocade” bracelet style was revived from the house’s archives for Couture 2018. It’s made of turquoise and lapis lazuli beads, brilliant-cut diamonds, green enamel, 18-karat hammered yellow gold and platinum.
Las Vegas--At its second year at the Couture show, American fine jewelry brand David Webb continued to prove that good jewelry design is timeless.

The jewelry house introduce a range of “Brocade” bracelets based on one of Webb’s original sketches from the 1970s. The bracelets feature gold metalwork that lays on the skin like fabric, accented with diamonds and gemstones.

The bracelets are illustrative of the way co-owner Mark Emanuel runs the business since acquiring it about eight years ago and reviving it from bankruptcy—he stays true to Webb’s exact work and design ethos, while imprinting his own taste through the curation of the collection, deciding which pieces should be produced and adjusting materials as he sees fit.

20180605 Webb2This David Webb brocade bracelet is 18-karat polished yellow gold and platinum with pear and brilliant-cut diamonds and tumbled emerald beads.

The brocade bracelets, crafted in 18-karat yellow gold and platinum with diamonds, showcase a mix of vibrant color via tumbled emerald beads, turquoise, lapis lazuli and coral.

The brand also showed extensions to its “Motif” range, which was brought back for its Couture debut last year. The collection relies on black-and-white enamel for a crisp look that is just as relevant today as it was when David Webb originally dreamed it.

Originally founded in 1948, David Webb employs 25 master jewelers at its New York City boutique and workshop.

The brocade bracelets will be available at Webb retail partners in the fall.
