    J.W. Charlton, a native New Yorker, established an American jewelry house under his own name in 1909. This was later renamed to Charlton & Co. when R.S. Robert became a partner. During the 1920s, the house opened branches in Palm Beach, Florida and also rue de la Paix in Paris, with an extensive list of important clients that could rival any major names in high jewelry at that time. Regarded as 'America's Cartier' by some people, the house was best known for their exquisite Art Deco designs. This annular brooch with giardinetto motif is a great example of such creations.
