A renowned New York designer of Italian origin, Carl Ruopoli produced fine jewelry in the 1920’s-1950’s. In addition, he has been a jewelry designer for such famous jewelry companies as Black Starr & Gorham, and Danecraft. Accordingly, products for these companies were labeled “Danecraft C. Ruopoli sterling”, or “Ruopoli for Black Starr and Gorham”.
Handcrafted with the highest craftsmanship and exclusive designs, his jewelry is extremely rare today and highly collectible. Traditionally, the master used sterling silver, 9-18 carat gold, multicolor art glass imitating gems and natural moonstone. His varied style includes figurative decorations in the form of birds, fish, shells, leaves, as well as Scandinavian, Art Deco and geometric designs.
Unfortunately, there is not much information about the designer’s biography.
