William Ruser Gold and Diamond Bracelet


Set with sixteen carats of diamonds, this highly flexible gold and platinum bracelet is a 1960s creation of William Ruser. Designed as a series of curved, articulated links, the pavé-set round brilliant-cut diamonds are interspersed with heavily textured and beaded gold that forms an abstract ground. With its striking contrast of the diamonds’ brilliance and geometry versus the organic feel of the softly modeled gold, this modernist jewel offers a fascinating visual surface that explores the richness and transformational spirit characteristic of 1960s aesthetics.

Captivating star clients like Marlene Dietrich and Lana Turner, William and Pauline Ruser were beloved for their fanciful figural jewelry of both playful and impish angels, swans, poodles and other adorable creatures. Leading and experimental in the 1940s-1960s, with a strong sense of fun, the Rusers’ innovative jewels displayed an exuberant and free-handed exploration of textured gold surfaces.
