Ruser Mid-20th Century Diamond and Gold Bracelet

An American Mid-20th 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 to the Hollywood community. His pieces were worn by numerous film stars on- and off-screen, from 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.

Their work ran from glamorous (diamond and gem-set tiaras convertible into necklaces) to exotic (bracelets set with rare Indian portrait diamonds), and they were owners for a time of the legendary Hope blue diamond. In keeping with the firm's tradition of versatility, this chic bracelet, with its creamy natural pearls set off by sparkling antique-cut diamonds, conceals a brooch fitting under the velvet interior of its original morocco leather box.

Victorian Blue Enamel Diamond and Pearl Accented Snake Bracelet

A Victorian 18 karat gold and blue enamel snake bracelet with diamonds and pearls. The old mine-cut diamonds have an approximate total weight of .40 carat. After Prince Albert gave Queen Victoria a snake band with an emerald head as a wedding present in 1839, snakes, particularly in a fully realized or continuous band form, came to be a symbol for eternal love and devotion during Victorian times. This particularly beautiful bracelet is given added significance with the use of the specific deep, rich tone of blue chosen for the enamel. From antiquity through the high Renaissance, this color of pigmentation was extremely expensive, as it was made from the crushed hard stone lapis lazuli. It was reserved for depiction of the Virgin Mary, the most important female figure in the lexicon of Western symbology at this time. Therefore, this beautiful work can be seen as a symbol of chaste, immortal love. Besides its symbolic value, this bracelet is also beautifully executed, with exquisite diamond-inlaid gold detail accenting the joints that allow it to be comfortably worn, and a large half-pearl crowning the serpent's head.

Circa: 1870's

Victorian Gold Snake Bangle with Diamond, Sapphire and Ruby

An English Victorian 18 karat gold hinged snake bangle with diamond, sapphire and ruby. The head is a cabochon blue sapphire that has the approximate weight of .15 carat surrounded by .12 carat of rose-cut diamonds with 2 cabochon ruby eyes that have the approximate total weight of .04 carat. After Prince Albert gave Queen Victoria a snake band with an emerald head as a wedding present in 1839, snakes, particularly in a fully realized or continuous band form, came to be a symbol for eternal love and devotion to the Victorians. This bracelet, which could alternatively be worn as an arm band, depending on the preference and comfort of the wearer, is a particularly charming example of Victorian snake jewelry. Unusually, the serpent's tail fully encircles the bangle several times as the two ends of the bangle meet, adding fantastically to its visual width. The diamond-haloed sapphire crowning the piece adds a beautiful bit of color and brilliance, as do the ruby eyes.

Victorian Diamond and Turquoise Snake Bangle Bracelet

A Victorian 15 karat gold bracelet with turquoise and diamonds. This is a large bangle, to be worn either on the wrist or as an arm band, It has the form of a serpent dynamically wrapped upon itself and seemingly caught in motion, covered in tightly-set cabochons of turquoise and replete with striated gold on the reverse side to complete the appearance of a snake. The head of the reptile features a large tear drop-shaped cabochon of turquoise framed by twelve old mine-cut diamonds that have approximate total weight of 1.14 carats, and has a lovely pair of diamond eyes. Turquoise was mistakenly named as such during the Victorian times because it was believed by most Western Europeans that the blue stone came from Turkey, when in fact it merely passed through Turkey on its way westward from Iran. Because of its color, turquoise was associated by Britons in the Victorian Age with the Forget Me Not flower, which, in the very sophisticated and well known "language of flowers," was a symbol of undying love. The snake, when depicted in a continuous loop, was also understood during this period as a potent emblem for eternal affection, largely due to the fact that Prince Albert presented Queen Victoria with a snake band with a gemstone head as a wedding ring.
