London jeweller Stephen Webster has announced that he is to design a fashion and bridal collection with Boston-based brand, Hearts on Fire. The pieces, rendered entirely in diamonds, will be retailing throughout Europe, America and China and will be priced between $10,000 and $1 million.
“As the Hearts On Fire brand takes on a stronger global footprint, we recognise the importance of elevating our design offering with greater variety in both high-end fashion and bridal,” said Caryl Capeci, chief marketing officer of Hearts On Fire to WWD. “By partnering with world-class jewellery designers such as Stephen Webster, we are able to expand the breadth of design and offer something completely new to our fans.” Webster added that, “Today’s global market place demands creativity and resources. Over the past twenty-five years we have strived to bring creative jewellery to a wider audience. By collaborating with Hearts On Fire we will be able to build on our achievements and be better equipped to expand globally.” The collection is set to hit selected Hearts on Fire and Stephen Webster retailers next year.
The news comes amid Webster’s announcement that his autobiography, titled “Gold Struck,” is nearly complete. Claiming to have written the entirety of the book himself without a ghost writer, in it Webster details his rise to prominence, helped along the way by the purchase of his pieces by stars such as Madonna and Ozzy Osborne. Set to be released at a launch party held by Bergdorf Goodman on October 28, the book is, according to Webster himself, a testament to “a life shaped by jewellery.”
