Rock Crystal Rock Crystal, from the Greek krystallos or "ice" refers to colorless quartz and is an April birthstone. Rock crystal was used in rings, pins, pendants and bracelets during the Art Deco period in particular, and is a hallmark of houses such as David Webb to this day.

Cabochon A cabochon is a gem which has been shaped and polished but not faceted, typically with a domed top and flat bottom. Cabochons are often cut for opaque stones, for softer translucent gems as well as to highlight phenomenon such as asterism “star” and chatoyancy “cat’s eye”, as these would not show in faceted stones. The 'sugarloaf' cabochon cut features a 4-sided pyramid shape.

Cocktail Ring A large ring worn on any finger other than the left ring finger can be called a cocktail ring. The history of the cocktail ring goes back to the American prohibition era of the 1920s. During this time, alcoholic beverages were banned, leading to the rise of illegal drinking establishments called speakeasies where for the first time, women were also in attendance. These art deco era women would drink glamorous cocktails in their best outfits which included oversized gemstone rings to flash while raising their glasses. Cocktail rings can feature any large stone, from diamond, sapphire, pearl and emerald to tourmaline, aquamarine or citrine. Others feature smaller stones set together to form flowers or animals such as panthers or tigers.

David Webb David Webb founded his eponymous company in 1948 in New York, becoming known for whimsical animal motifs including zebra, snakes, tigers and panthers among others. Before his passing in 1975, Webb was firmly established as a Hollywood favorite, with famous clients including Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Unique Elements
This ring features ‘leaves’ of gold that encase the large rock crystal like foliage. The architecture of this ring is classic David Webb and reflects both the skill and the whimsy of the house.
