Rondette vintage fine jewelry (1959-1986)
The history of the American jewelry brand Rondette began in 1954 in New York. Rondette Limited, founded by talented jewelry designer Ben Khalaf, was located at 20 West 47th Street, New York, New York.
Ben Khalaf and his small team of designers produced high-quality jewelry using precious metals and stones – 14 and 18 carat gold, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and diamonds. Beautifully and meticulously handcrafted, Rondette jewelry occasionally appeared in the pages of fashion magazines of the time. According the some of their ads, the company sold its jewelry in boutiques in Miami, Sutton Ballroom New York, Anatole hotel Dallas and others.
The markings traditionally include the word “Rondette”, a stylized “R”, a copyright symbol, and gold purity.
Inspired by ancient Egypt and Greek mythology, Rondette jewelry is extremely rare and highly collectible.
Founded in 1959, Rondette LTD. ceased to exist in 1986.
