Webster - who has long been a favourite to take the reigns of the Royal jewellers from former creative director Jade Jagger - is one of the UK's leading jewellery designers and has a cult celebrity following, including Margo Stilley (pictured with Stephen), Jennifer Lopez, Kate Moss and Sienna Miller. He counts Christina Aguilera - who fronted his recent ad campaign - as a close friend and he also gained fame after designing Madonna and Guy Ritchie's wedding bands.
Its kind of a strange one for me, Webster admitted to WWD of taking the creative helm at Garrard. Fifteen years ago when I was trying to sell my jewellery in England, no one was interested... Britain was very much into diamonds and pearls and my big cocktail rings didnt have a place. The one place that gave me a shot was Garrard, he recalled. They really were very enthusiastic about my product.
