An American Mid-Century platinum, gold and diamond bracelet by Ruser. The Modernist motif bracelet has 20 unique diamond pave links that are individually hinged and further decorated with gold beading. There are 300 round-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 16.00 carats. William Ruser was a much sought after Beverly Hills jeweler with the Hollywood set and his pieces were worn by numerous film stars on and off-screen in the 1940's through the 1960's. The distinctive Ruser style involved skillfully sculpted children and pearl winged angels, often seated on clouds of freshwater pearls and crowned with halos of tiny seed pearls, as well as less whimsical jewelry. He closed the doors to his shop in 1969, whereupon the property was bought by Van Cleef and Arpels which remains in the same location on Rodeo Drive today.
