18k gold bracelet with moonstone intaglios depicting Connecticut Senator William Benton and his four children. American, ca. 1940. Designed by Izabel Coles and moonstones carved by Beth Benton Sutherland. 18k gold mount most likely by Herman Koechendoeffer Beth Benton Sutherland was Senator Benton’s cousin, and had a reputation as an expert gem cover, specializing in moonstones. She became particularly well-known for her skill in capturing the countenances of children and her carved portraits were highly coveted. Coles and Benton began collaborating in the 1930s, with Coles making jeweled frames for Sutherland’s intaglio portraits, which were exhibited at the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, MA. One of these portrait jewels, depicting philanthropist Edward S. Harkness, is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
