Morgan Freeman, who won a long-awaited Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, wore David Webb platinum, black enamel, diamond and crystal shirt studs and cufflinks as he accepted his award to a standing ovation. Freeman's stylist Anna Roth, who selected Webb jewelry for her client well in advance, explains Webb's enduring popularity:
"It's not only quality of the workmanship, which is impeccable," says Roth, "the pieces are bold and unique. When you want to make an elegant statement you can count on David Webb."
Jane Seymour certainly looked elegant wearing David Webb platinum and diamond earrings at the Elton John AIDS Foundation party, as did Aisha Taylor in a pair of Webb's platinum, pearl and diamond earrings. Fashion photographer-turned-director David
LaChapelle, known for his groundbreaking visuals, wore a David Webb yellow gold and chocolate brown diamond ring.
From the company's beginning in the late 40s, David Webb Fine Jewelry attracted international attention, but some of the earliest and biggest fans came from Hollywood.
Movie sirens Ava Gardner and Lana Turner wore their jewelry both on and off the big screen. Style mavens like Princess Grace of Monaco, the Duchess of Windsor, Merle Oberon, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis were loyal customers.
Elizabeth Taylor featured four pages of David Webb jewelry in "My Love Affair with Jewelry," the photo book of her legendary collection. But the timelessness of the work is still attracting famous young beauties such as Alicia
Silverstone, Scarlett Johansson and Mischa Barton.
