Self-taught American jeweler David Webb is known for his bold statement pieces, including his dragon bracelets, animal motifs, and Maltese cross brooches. When Cartier’s creative director Jeanne Toussaint and designer Peter Lemarchand collaborated to create statement jewelry with animal motifs, Webb felt the impacts of the new trend. As Webb stated, “Everything was born from the influence of Toussaint, naturally she inspired all of us.” A gold and ruby cuff David Webb bracelet will be featured in the upcoming Jewels Online auction, offered by Sotheby’s. The gold cuff features two dolphin motifs, each with a cabochon ruby eye.
Other brands represented in this auction include Cartier, Bulgari, and Van Cleef & Arpels, among others. A Cartier Panthère ring is among the highlighted lots. The gold band features two panther motifs set with round diamonds. Notable items will also include a Bulgari, Vacheron & Constantin wristwatch in gold and blackened steel, as well as a Tambour Bijou Louis Vuitton watch in mother-of-pearl.
