David Webb Asscher-Cut Diamond Ring


This striking gold and two-and-a-half carat Asscher-cut diamond ring is a classic David Webb jewel, combining a lustrous stone set with soft, hand-hammered gold. As a modernist, David Webb drew on the vocabulary of urban architecture—the form and structure of roads, bridges, plazas, towers, facades—and applied it to his highly original creations. The results were jewels with definite lines and remarkable presence, like this gleaming gold and diamond ring that projects radiance, confidence and strong design.

Before settling on a career in jewelry design, David Webb had many other strong artistic leanings, saying, "I had a tremendous feeling for art in me. I wanted to be an archaeologist, a ceramicist, or a jeweler. Jewelry won out."
