Based in London, luxury jewellery brand Stephen Webster is internationally renowned for making high-end pieces with an edge. Inspired by music, fashion, literature and art his pieces have been worn from music royalty such as Rihanna, to actual Royalty. His work symbolises over 40 years of craftsmanship and love of traditional British skills, built on a foundation of technical excellence founded at the workbench in London’s Hatton Garden where Webster began his apprenticeship at the age of 16.
His designs are wonderfully unique and evocative, with subjects such as William Blake’s illustrations for “Albion Rose” or the pop culture iconography of David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust” album cover. Regarded as more artist than artisan, his passion for storytelling is woven throughout each collection, with a penchant for making even the most unassuming object spectacular.
But this is not just a label that cares for aesthetics: his design-led brand is married to a long-term commitment to sustainability and ethical production. An ambassador for Fairtrade, Webster has visited the miners in Peru and ensures all his jewellery is made using Fairtrade gold and with conflict-free diamonds. He also belongs to the “London Leopards”, alongside other prominent jewellery-makers, celebrating the diversity and community of British craftsmanship.
Keen to have an environmental impact, the brand actively supports various charities including Direct Relief, Fashion For Relief and (RED). 2018 also saw a further environmental outreach with Plastic Oceans International, launching an engraved, personalised sterling-silver straw designed to reduce plastic waste. Redefining the term ‘statement jewellery’, this is one brand that lets your finery do the talking.
