Cf. R. Peltason, David Webb, The Quintessential American Jeweler, Assouline, 2013, p.139 illustrating the double-headed leopard bracelet, first designed in 1964
Throughout his career David Webb’s designs showcased endless variations of animal, floral and organic forms. By the early 1960’s his then famous animal bracelets were the firm’s best-selling items; with every well dressed and well known woman in America bearing stacked selections on each wrist. Varyingly set with precious stones and diamonds, decorated in brightly coloured enamels or simply chased in gold, the Webb animal bracelet is surely one of his most famous designs.
