These 1920s-1930s citrine glass Art Deco pendant earrings are probably Czech in origin. What’s really unique is the metal inlays in each drop, which give the appearance of marcasites. The faceted domed crystal at the top (designed to fall at the earlobe) is the same color as the bead and drop. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears.

Rectangular dark-citrine-glass stones are set in the center of alternating panels of sterling silver filigree in this vintage Art Deco bracelet by Simmons, a company known for their innovation. The clasp on this piece is unique and secure. This bracelet is wider than most of its filigree counterparts, which makes me think it may be an early 1930s piece.

The design and construction of this citrine glass and crystal tiered Art Deco necklace, a variation on the chicklet style, is first class.

This divine necklace, which I initially purchased for myself, closes with a spring-ring clasp. I have a number of Art Deco earrings and bracelets to wear with this necklace – scroll down to see them.

This bracelet closes with a tongue-in-grove clasp. Scroll down to see Art Deco necklaces and earrings in similar shades of citrine that look great with this bracelet.
These substantial milk glass, diamanté and gold wire 1950s earrings by Hattie Carnegie look like flowers. Opaque white glass stones are prong set, wired in place and accented with clear rhinestones.

Large golden and brown topaz glass stones are prong set in gold-tone metal with round citrine glass accents in these clip-back earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli. The exotic three-sided shape of the large stones enhances the three-leaf clover design, and the elaborate construction of the earring backs exemplifies the maker's quality. This color combination can be seen in other Schiaparelli pieces. You can see the utility patent for the earring clasp here, shown below the names Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford.
Small glass round cream-colored pearls surrounding a large glass baroque pearl in the same tone form these 1950s French earrings with clip-backs. Though these earrings are unsigned, the construction (especially the clip-back mechanism) and materials are consistent with those used by Louis Rousselet. These earrings would make a lovely accessory for daytime, evening or bridal/wedding/prom wear.
Faceted peridot-glass stones capped with silver-tone metal filigree are the focal point in these delicate 1920s Art Deco earrings, with peridot-glass beads and silver-tone filigree disks accents. Peridot is a hard-to-find color. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings are long and lovely!
