Raymond Yard
Raymond Yard was a master of his art, creating high end jewellery for some of America's wealthiest families in New York City. His clients included; the Rockefellers, Woolworths and Vanderbilts as well as movie stars such as Joan Crawford and Douglas Fairbanks. His designs were famous for using only the highest quality gemstones and the finest platinum mountings which as a result raised the bar for jewellery manufacturing for that time. Today, Raymond Yard jewellery ranks amongst the greats such Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Maison Janesich. Yard's extremely collectable pieces are pursued by avid collectors.

The 1930s
The 1930s saw a departure from the carefree flapper style of the 20s and a new decade began with the glamour that was oozing out of Hollywood. The dress clip was the most popular piece of jewellery at the time worn on the neckline and soon being designed in a double incorporating the symmetry featured so heavily in the designs of the Art Deco period. The slim line and fine details in rings and bracelets seen in the 20s were expanded on and bracelets became wider while rings became more elongated both horizontally and vertically on the fingers. Men wore Cartier’s bejewelled cufflinks and diamond studded brooches, which brought an air of glamour to their masculinity.
