While scenes from the new James Bond film are being shot in Rome, I can’t help but notice that the chic and edgy spirit of the quintessential Bond girl seems to resonate in the collections of the celebrated jewelry designer Stephen Webster.
A British origin isn’t the only thing Stephen Webster and James Bond have in common. The famed jeweler has widely demonstrated his love for the 007 novels by presenting pieces inspired by the James Bond theme, timed to coincide with the release of the film Skyfall. With the jeweler’s eye-catching, dazzling pieces, it is no coincidence that Berenice Marlohe, French actress starring as the beautiful Bond girl, stepped out onto the red carpet at the film’s premiere wearing beautiful Stephen Webster pieces.
Webster’s new collection Thorn, which includes stunning rings, bracelets, earrings, and cuffs, recalls the same daring and sensual beauty represented by the typical Bond girl. The thorny rose was the inspiration behind this collection, with the flower’s captivating beauty laced by the danger of the sharp spikes that adorn it. Intertwining stems of white gold decorated with diamond studs create an intriguingly mysterious effect with just a touch of glam rock, true to Stephen Webster tradition. The long maxi-ring, made of 18-karat white gold and scattered diamonds, has a particularly appealing impact.
If you are interested in finding a perfectly unique piece of jewelry, go admire the Thorn Collection, as well as the other exclusive and permanent Stephen Webster collections, that can be found at the brand’s boutique, in the Grand Palace gallery of St. Petersburg.
And even more exciting news: the celebrated jeweler is set to soon open a new store in St. Petersburg, at the exclusive Belmond Grand Hotel Europe. Make sure to not miss the Spring opening of this original jeweler’s new location, during which it will be possible to browse, try on, and purchase luxury pieces from the jeweler named best designer of the year at the prestigious GEM awards.
