WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A new exhibit will sparkle at the Norton Museum of Art starting Jan. 16. 

The exhibit is called "David Webb: Society's Jeweler."   With clients like Jacqueline Kennedy, Doris Duke and Diana Vreeland, Webb's jewelry designs have been recognized for technical expertise and design. 

The exhibition presents about 80 necklaces, rings and other jewelry in rich materials like gold, jade, coral, enamel and precious stones. 

Within the exhibit, there is also insight provided into the process of creating the works and photos and advertisements that show how Webb's works were worn in the 1960s. 

An informative lecture will be presented at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 20.  Donald Albrecht, a guest curator of the special exhibition, will talk about Webb's career and the trends of the 1960s.
