Description

Delicate sparkling petals accent these classically feminine white pearl earrings by American jewelry designer David Webb (1925-1975). We rarely see a white-on-white palette, minimalist both in color and materials, from this designer who favors yellow gold, electric surface texture, and a riot of color and pattern painted in gemstones and enamel. David Webb’s jewels are no stranger to the Red Carpet, and these sophisticated pearl and diamond earrings are pure old Hollywood glamour. If you have a tender place in your heart for this designer, you will treasure this pair.

As we know, the designer uses nothing but the finest materials; the David Webb Pearl Diamond Pavé Button Stud Earrings are crafted in platinum and feature two round white pearls, believed to be South Sea pearls, which sit demurely on mountings of repeating stylized flower petals and are partially encircled in six larger naturalized petals pavé-set with white round brilliant-cut diamonds. Cultured South Sea pearls are the largest gemstones on the cultured market, with sizes ranging from 8 mm to 20 mm, making them both rare and valuable. South Sea cultured pearls are of exceptional quality with a whitish, almost silver color and an exceptionally smooth and round shape. The lyrical mirror image pair is clipped back and Signed by David Webb with marks for platinum. The weight of platinum is an estimated 29.09 grams.

The flower petals are beautifully crafted, expressing volume and elasticity. They dance and sparkle in different directions as if delicately blown by the wind. The configuration of petals creates a gentle sweeping movement around the center pearls and is likewise designed to frame the wearer’s face with utter grace and elegance. The reverse side of each petal is just as aesthetically pleasing but with a beauty that is also functional. There are shaped cutouts that have been hand-carved behind each stone to create light behind the diamonds and make them shine. The hours of workmanship and attention to detail make this pair of button stud earrings quite special.

Overall weight 29.09 grams, made in 18k white gold. Signed Webb; circa 1980s.
