There were several designers of vintage jewelry who used this term on their products. Some which come to mind are Reed and Barton for their damascene designs, Sarah Coventry for her religious crosses and Birds and Blooms for their pewter nature designs.
Many contemporary designers use the term for their products. Judith Ripka is one popular designer of limited editions, but many modern jewelry artisans use the term for their products too.
Here are a few limited edition jewelry pieces that I currently have for sale in my Vintage Jewelry Lane store:
Reed and Barton 1st Limited Edition Christmas angel damascene necklace - $42.99
