Two faceted oblong chrysoprase (glass?) stones with a faceted round collet-set crystal at the bottom form these classic 1920s Art Deco earrings. Each stone is separated by a ring link, so there’s plenty of movement here. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I have a number of chrysoprase pieces that would compliment these earrings – scroll down to see them.
Although unmarked, the design and quality of this 1920s-1930s Art Deco chrysoprase (glass?) and crystal chicklet-style necklace makes me think it's German. The faceting of the crystals is phenomenal, and the mountings of the stones are highly-decorated. The metal stone frames and links may be sterling, although they are unmarked. This gorgeous piece from my personal collection closes with an older spring-ring clasp. Scroll down to see Art Deco earrings and bracelets to wear with this necklace.
Polished disks of onyx and chrysoprase glass form this Art Deco necklace. The center beads are thicker, faceted, and graduated in size. This vibrant piece, in a striking color combination, closes with an older tongue-in-groove clasp that looks like a narrow tube when closed. You could emphasize either color by wearing either chrysoprase or onyx Art Deco pieces with this necklace – scroll down to see a selection. This necklace has so many possibilities!
This Art Deco necklace features faceted, opaque chrysoprase, onyx and ruby glass disks and rhinestone rondelles. The components are strung on metal chain. The necklace closes with a screw-in clasp formed by two of the disks. Based on the construction of this piece, I think it is European in origin. As often happens with necklaces like this one, the chain has stretched. If you don't need the full 15" length and the extra chain bothers you, you could get it cut by an expert jeweler. This colorful and versatile necklace can be worn with many of my other Art Deco pieces, depending on which color you wish to emphasize — scroll down to see a selection. Or wear your real or faux diamond studs to complete the look.

Sterling silver set with gemstone-colored glass stones in a crescent shape make these 1940s clip-back earrings by DeRosa very versatile. The colored stones are graduated in size and enhanced with an inner ring of diamanté. Moreover, the faux diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire and topaz form the word dearest, making these earrings acrostic (i.e., the initials of the stones form a word or name). This type of sentimental jewelry was very popular in the 19th century Victorian era, a style that inspired some 1940s jewelry designers. DeRosa pieces are always exceptionally well-made and hard to find.
