During the 1930s-40s, Ruser struck it rich with the stars of Hollywood by fashioning brooches of angels and critters with baroque (freshwater) pearl pillows, clouds, bodies, etc.
His former location became the site of the Van Cleef & Arpels store!
This pin does not bear the Ruser signature but it most certainly carries on his tradition.
The angel is carrying his own stash of sapphire studded stars with him to illuminate his way.
Dressed for the occasion, he is wearing a ruby studded sash. He is floating upwards on a beautiful freshwater pearl cloud.
All of the gold features are solidly fashioned out of 14K gold and the pin has a secure, rollover safety clasp. It measures approx. 1 1/4".
As you probably are already aware, if this were a signed Ruser pin, it would sell in the $2500-3500 price range. Here it is offered to you for significantly less. A great value!
