The Glam-Rock Jewelry of Stephen Webster
Stephen Webster is a London-based jewelry brand internationally heralded for its exquisite and cutting edge designs.  Founder and Creative Director Stephen Webster blends his love for traditional craftsmanship with passion for contemporary music, fashion and art to produce modern, unconventional yet beautiful jewelry.  It’s a unique and edgy approach that has been over 30 years in the making and won a huge loyal global customer base, as well as industry recognition.

From a modest upbringing near London, Stephen has attracted some of the entertainment world’s most alluring and glamorous clients and has established a loyal and evolving, global customer base.  Stephen’s enthusiasm, commitment and creativity have helped him to achieve numerous accolades. Stephen also holds the honor of a Freeman of the City of London.

While the jewels in Stephen Webster’s exquisite pieces may be multifaceted, his vision has always been singularly focused.  Webster’s love for things that sparkle found him attending a Jewellery and Silversmith course at Medway College of Design at the young age of 16.  During the first term, Stephen became consumed by a passion for jewelry design and craftsmanship.  After completing his training under Tony Sheperd, a former Prime Warden of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, Stephen worked as a craftsman for several established London design houses.  Among many highly regarded commissions was the honor, on two occasions, of setting the De Beers Diamond Stakes Trophy.

After receiving the acclaimed De Beers honor in 1982, which marked an emergence for Stephen into the fine jewelry market, he relocated to Canada to design and produce for an independent jewelry.  Following a brief return to the UK in 1984, Stephen identified opportunities for his jewelry in California. His bold style and use of exotic and unusual gems attracted the fashion-savvy and uninhibited audience out West. After much success and expansion, Stephen returned to London in 1998 to establish the company that is known today as Stephen Webster Ltd.   The Stephen Webster brand philosophy remains the same over the years: to offer the consumer a true lifestyle experience through expert craftsmanship and a glam-rock attitude, giving way to dramatic creations which have been received with unprecedented demand.

With one of the largest jewelry manufacturing and design studios in London’s West End, Stephen Webster is widely considered to be one of the international scene’s most accomplished and exciting designers.  The company has expanded globally, with 200 points of sale worldwide in the United Kingdom, United States, Russia and ex-Soviet Republics, Dubai, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Kuwait and Hong Kong, and eight Stephen Webster boutiques internationally, including the flagship store on London’s Mount Street and most recently on Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills.

Meanwhile, Stephen’s stellar celebrity client roster continues to grow. Over the past few years he has designed one-of-a-kind pieces for the likes of Madonna, Sharon Stone, Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Pink and Christina Aguilera.  He also has created jewelry for Elton John, Jay Z, Ozzy Osborne, Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke and Russell Brand, to name but a few.  

Stephen’s industrious talent has placed colored gemstones and fine jewelry back into the spotlight. “Things have changed,” Webster says. “The fear factor, the reverence and the rather staid formality have all but disappeared.  Magazines now have fashion shoots featuring H&M jeans accented by £10,000 diamond rings.  Adding a diamond-studded detail to a watch or a piece of jewelry no longer marks a customer as a flashy, ostentatious type.  It just makes a person look more . . . lively,” said Webster.
