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.

About Mid-Century Jewelry

Mid-Century jewelers gave the Victorians a run for their money when it came to variety—with the added bonus of big, bold gems in every shape, size, and color. Themes of previous eras were made fabulous enough to match the optimism of the post-war world. Transitional pieces bridged the gap between the first and second half of the 20th century.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
