NEW YORK – David Webb is having a moment. The iconic New York jeweler whose devoted clientele included Doris Duke, Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is turning up everywhere. The brand has revamped with an edgy, fashion-forward ad campaign. Last fall, Assouline published a beautiful and comprehensive book entitled David Webb, The Quintessential American Jeweler.  Earlier this month the Norton Museum of Art in Palm Beach mounted a gorgeous retrospective exhibition, David Webb: Society’s Jeweler. I had the pleasure of attending the opening of the Norton exhibition with Gary Schuler, Director of Sotheby’s Jewelry Department, where we saw a number of our clients wearing pieces purchased in our sales.
