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.
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.
Three faceted square-cut crystal chicklets dangle in these charming 1920s Art Deco earrings. The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) each have a diamond-shaped crystal chicklet at the earlobe. The mountings and findings may be sterling silver, but only the screw-backs are marked. Because the dangling chicklets are separated by rings, these earrings have lots of movement and light reflection. These earrings look great with many of my Art Deco pieces – scroll down to see a selection.
Faceted, square- and triangle-shaped chrysoprase-glass stones mounted in silver-tone metal form these simple, yet elegant 1920s Art Deco earrings.

The screw-backs are marked sterling, but I cannot say whether the metal that frames each stone is as well. These all-original screw-back earrings are beautifully made, nonetheless. Please note that these earrings can be modified for pierced ears. Scroll down to see several Art Deco pieces to wear with these earrings.

Cobalt-blue glass tubes and chrome balls dangle from this Art Deco fringe necklace. The chrome links have a Machine-Age feel. Possibly French, this piece has lots of movement!
