Ruser: William Ruser learned the jewelry business managing Trabert & Hoeffer, Mauboussin boutiques in Atlantic City and Beverly Hills. In 1947 he opened his own shop on Rodeo Drive, where he rapidly earned the distinction of “Jeweler to the Stars”. Celebrities such as Loretta Young, Joan Crawford and Claudette Colbert prominently displayed his creations in film, on the red carpet as well as in print. Ruser was known, first, for his elegant pave-set diamond jewels and, second, for his whimsical sculptural freshwater pearl designs. His menagerie of animals, insects, flowers and children were based upon the fanciful, irregular shaped freshwater pearls, the most popular of which were his Monday’s Child and Poodle lines. His jewels reflected the post war optimism and lightheartedness of the 1950s and 1960s. Ruser retired in 1969, closed his salon and its prime corner location is now the home of Van Cleef & Arpels.
