There is jewellery…… and then there is jewellery. Stephen Webster creations, without a doubt, belong to the latter category. It is jewellery with attitude. Using gothic motifs, it has dark overtones and a jagged edge, even to a collection like Rapture, an ode to love. But is also has the most amazingly intricate detailing; a breathtaking use of vibrantly colourful gemstones of an unusual range and variety, so that the jewellery literally hits you in the gut.


Stephen Webster, eponymous founder and creative director of the London based brand and company, Stephen Webster Ltd., is like the gemstones he works with – multifaceted. He is deeply interested in contemporary music, fashion, art, all of which feed his creative spirit.

In 1998, Webster returned to London, after various stints in Canada and the US to establish what is today well known as Stephen Webster Ltd., which currently has 120 points of sale worldwide. The Stephen Webster flagship store opened on Mount Street in Mayfair, London in the summer of 2009, followed shortly after by the brand’s first European store in Marbella, Spain. In 2010 are slated launches of boutiques in Talinn, Estonia and Vienna, Austria.

Webster’s unusual and bold style and use of exotic and off beat gemstones quickly attracted for him a following of fashion conscious connoisseurs. Little wonder that he has a growing clientele of stars and celebrities from across the globe including the likes of Madonna, Sharon Stone, Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Elton John, , Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke, Nicholas Cage. His long time friend, musical artist Christina Aguilera also now appears in the Stephen Webster ad campaign.

The Jewels Verne Fine Jewellery Collection, is inspired by the Jules Verne fantasy novel, “20,000 Leagues under the Sea”. Combining the meticulous details of the Victorian Machines with the fantastic creatures inhabiting the deep ocean described in the novel, the collection is a dazzling display of the most imaginative kind.

“Over the last few years we have noticed that the more creative and fanciful the pieces in our collections, the more our customers enjoy owning and wearing them” comments Webster.

The collection uses distinctive combinations - jet black onyx and rose gold; the darkest blackened gold and lapis lazuli; purple amethysts, black mother of pearl and black opal with stunning black and silver diamonds.

The Jewels Verne Silver Collection follows the successful trail of the fine jewellery collection of the same name. Lobster earrings, octopus toggle bracelets, shark jaw clasps and engraved fish tails combine pearls, rose gold rivets and blackened silver to create this stunning and intricate collection.
