Ronald Abram has a strong affinity for estate jewellery, particularly from the Art Deco period. It has also inspired much of the design ethos of the brand. Art Deco inspiration can be found throughout our salon as well as in our estate jewellery collection which we have curated over the past 50 years.
Our collection of vintage brooches, bracelets and sautoirs spans Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco and Modern eras, including rare, signed items by established jewellery houses such as Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels.
There's an elegance to jewels from a bygone era which is reflected in our Estate jewellery collection.
Art Deco Highlights
The Art Deco period has always had a major influence on our brand ethos and creative process with its signature bold, geometric patterns and iconic motifs. Discover our collection of rare and iconic pieces from this magnificent design era.
Art Deco Emerald & Diamond Convertible Sautoir, by Mellerio Dits Meller,
Colombian Emerald approximately 4.60 carats, and Diamonds approximately 16 carats
For more than four centuries, Mellerio has provided exceptional jewellery to some of history’s most powerful families. With patrons including Marie de Medici, Queen Marie Antoinette, Queen Isabella of Spain, and Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon, Mellerio knew how to convey strength and beauty through bold design. Centering a vibrant Colombian emerald, the pendant frames the stone with chevrons and circles, geometric designs inspired by the hexagonal shape of the emerald. Worn as a sautoir with an elaborate diamond chain echoing the design of the pendant, the jewel is beautiful and impactful. The ingenious design allows the necklace to be taken apart and worn as three bracelets, or as a shorter necklace with or without the pendant, bringing unusual versatility to the magnificent jewel.
Art Deco Ruby, Sapphire, & Diamond Bracelet, by Cartier,
Diamonds approximately 30.20 carats
Designed and made by Cartier in Paris, this magnificent bracelet is a celebration of exquisite stone cutting by a master maker. Featuring a flexible strap bracelet adorned with a glittering field of diamonds and punctuated by colourful calibre-cut rubies and sapphires. The pave-set field of round diamonds is subtly broken up by areas of square French cuts placed to give the impression that a line of rubies weaves playfully underneath creating a sense of fluid movement. The bold geometric design and masterful use of stone cuts marks this piece as exceptional.
Art Deco Kashmir Sapphire & Diamond Brooch-Pendant
Kashmir sapphire 11.76 carats, Royal Blue
The cascade of diamonds in this platinum brooch-pendant evokes the mesmerising and tranquil feel of a waterfall. Designed by Mauboussin, who was one of the period’s most important Parisian jewellers and noted for this motif, as well as for bold, colorful, geometric designs. At the centre is a magnificent cabochon Kashmir sapphire of royal blue colour and embellished with a diamond fringe that adds a sense of movement to this iconic jewel.
Art Deco Diamond Scroll Brooch by Lucien Feist,
Diamonds approximately 45 carats
This elegant platinum brooch features diamond-set scrolls unfurling from a stepped roll. Created by renowned jeweller, Lucien Feist whose salon was located in Paris at 25 Avenue Niel. The variety of round and baguette diamonds adds scintillation and depth to this all-white piece. This versatile and dynamic jewel can be worn on the lapel, in the hair or on the cuff.
