When David Webb (1925-1975) arrived in New York at the age of 17, he was captivated by the museums, architecture and fashion of the time. Fifteen years after opening his boutique, he wrote in his only published article, "Why Not Hang Gems" (1963), that jewellery deserved to be considered a work of art and collected by museums.

Following Webb's conviction, this book presents jewels as works of art, reflecting the diversity of artistic and cultural periods that inspired the jeweller and the company he founded. These include the enamelled Mondrian bracelet adorned with diamonds, a dragon brooch rich in precious stones taken from the pommel of a Scythian animal, and a rock crystal and diamond bracelet that updates Art Deco classics.
