Love Monkeys: David Webb’s “Embracing Monkeys” Ring

JO Monkey Love

Yesterday, I visited David Webb‘s flagship store in New York where I found myself blissfully surrounded by countless cases of the most exquisite David Webb jewels.  I’ll detail my visit to the store and tour of the workshop in a later post, but wanted to first share one of my favorite finds amid the piles of trays I was lucky enough to browse.

Surrounded by sparkling rings of voluminous proportions and thrilling colors was this most adorable gold ring endearingly sculpted to portray two loving monkeys embracing one another.  The gilded amorous gesture immediately struck a chord in my heart and I was smitten with these two love monkeys!

As one of my favorite repertoires by David Webb, his animal jewels always delight with a spirited sparkle and whimsy.  The simple embracing gesture of the monkeys in this heartfelt ring, a perfect token of love, adds a new emotional dimension to his lighthearted stable of animal jewels.
