Stephen Webster was already behind the workbench at Hatton Garden in London at the age of 16, where he learned to make jewellery. He started his own brand in 1989 and hasn’t lost any of his creativity since then. Webster has been breaking the rules of the traditional jewelry industry for more than 40 years. His designs are intelligent, challenging and visionary and find their inspiration in art, fashion, music, literature and nature, with a pinch of gothic, hard rock and the whimsical sides of life. Stephen Webster’s jewellery is made with an eye for detail and absolute craftsmanship, for which he has won several awards. In 2013, he received an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) award from Prince Charles for his commitment to preserving British craftsmanship for future generations and for his efforts to create sustainable jewelry.
Throughout his four-decade career, Stephen Webster has always championed the use of ethically sourced materials in his jewellery. His vision is that high jewellery should not only be made perfectly, but it should also stand for something good, with sustainability as a core value. That’s why Stephen travelled to mines in Tanzania and Peru to meet the mining communities and find the source of the materials he uses in his work.
In 2011, he was one of the first jewellery brands in the world to receive a licence from the Fairtrade Gold Association for the use of ethically sourced gold. In 2016, he received the prestigious Butterfly Mark certification from Positive Luxury, a global collective of sustainability experts who want to make the luxury world fairer and more environmentally friendly.
Diamonds from the sky
The Skydiamond collection is the fruit of Stephen Webster’s desire for sustainability. Inspired by space and the sky, the jewels feature the world’s first carbon-negative diamond. Using patented technology, carbon is filtered from the air and transformed into diamonds in a high-pressure laboratory, returning clean air to the atmosphere – an innovative process that turns the air we breathe into certified Skydiamonds.
Each cut of the diamonds is unique to Stephen Webster, allowing the Skydiamond jewellery collection to offer a contemporary line, and can even be used as an alternative and eco-friendly bridal jewellery.
