Our Estate jewellery collection houses unique period pieces whose inherent beauty will be revered today, tomorrow & beyond.
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.
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.
Art Deco Old Mine Colombian Emerald & Diamond Necklace,
Emeralds approximately 19.73 carats & Diamonds approximately 44.71 carats
Featuring richly saturated Old Mine Colombian emeralds against an ornate geometric diamond design in platinum, this bib necklace is a statement in sophistication. Open-work segments are set with stunning round diamonds and connected by flexible hinges adorned with baguette diamonds. The result is a celebration of functional and beautiful design enhanced by the vibrancy of the emeralds.
Art Deco Burma
Sapphires approximately 69 carats
The lace-like design of this diamond-set platinum bracelet elegantly weaves seven royal blue cabochon sapphires from Burma. This magnificent, century-old piece is a contrast in textures, balancing the cool smoothness of the cabochons against the scalloped edges and curved open-work diamond design. The result is an aesthetic that harmonises the boldness of the sapphires against the lightness of the diamonds to create an ornate and distinct piece.
There's an elegance to jewels from a bygone era which is reflected in our Estate jewellery collection.
