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.

Clematis: The Queen of VinesImported into Europe from Japanese gardens in the 18th century, this ostentatious bloomer derives its name from the Ancient Greek klematis, or climbing vine. Linnaeus, the Enlightenment mega-organizer of botany, was so impressed by the flower''s climbing skills that he removed the Greek name from a previously classified plant and gave it to the star newcomer. In its many enchanting forms and colors, the Clematis appears in late spring and endures all the way to the first frost, while providing a continuous profusion of flowers. A favorite food of butterflies and hummingbirds, the same plant can bloom for decades, ascending garden walls, shading verandas, and winding poetically up trellises and lamp posts.
