David Webb Sea Urchin Brooch, Circa 1960s
ABOUT THIS BROOCH
The illustrious American jeweler of modern and imaginative designs, David Webb, believed that, "Everybody wants something original. Women will shop all day for originality. Design is the most important thing." From his fabulous animal bracelets to his Art Deco-inspired rock crystal collections, Webb's designs are nothing if not original--and bold. In his hands, the humble 'porcupine of the sea,' the sea urchin, is elevated to an art form. Shimmering with undulating, textured, 18K yellow gold radial spines, this bold bodacious brooch, reminiscent of mid-century wall art, will add marvelous dimension--and more than a little intrigue--to your ensemble. As with every piece of Webb jewelry since 1948, this one was crafted on the premises of the company's headquarters on Madison Avenue in New York City. Circa 1960s. Pin stem is 18K white gold.
