Faceted crystal beads uniform in size form this long 1930s Art Deco necklace that can be worn in different ways with just about anything. The quality of the beads is superb, and the design is timeless. The necklace has been recently re-strung by my professional jeweler (who actually sold it to me for my personal collection). Even though the necklace has no clasp, you can wear it three ways: long, knotted, and doubled with a sterling silver pearl enhancer, which I will include with the necklace. Be sure to look at all of the photos, which illustrate these options. Scroll down to see several pairs of earrings to wear with this fabulous necklace.
A faceted clear crystal ball hangs from a fine sterling silver chain in these dainty 1920s Art Deco earrings. The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) have a framed glass stone at the earlobe. These stones appear to have darkened only because the attachment of the screw-back mechanisms does not allow the light to pass through the stones. These earrings go with everything!

Faceted crystal beads dangle from filigree settings in these 1920s Art Deco earrings. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings coordinate well with any of my Art Deco necklaces with clear crystals only or with a combination of clear and colored crystals.

A fully-faceted crystal briolette is suspended from a faceted prong-set clear glass stone in these all-original Art Deco earrings. The screw-backs are sterling silver. The round faceted stone at the top is very prominent – 1/2" diameter by 1/2" deep – so be ready to make a statement! These earrings can be modified for pierced ears.
Single and clusters of blown-ruby-glass beads separated by crystal disks form this lovely Art Deco necklace. It closes with a filigree fish-hook clasp. Reds are hard to match, so consider wearing any of my crystal bead Art Deco earrings with this necklace. Scroll down to see a selection.
Gold-plated fretwork embellished with baguette-shaped diamanté form the center of this lovely 1950s snake chain necklace by Coro. A pear-shaped diamanté adorns the tail of the hook closure. This piece is another great example of the work Adolph Katz produced for Corocraft, Coro's high-end line. What's interesting is that this piece appears in an October 1, 1953 Vogue ad with the following copy: "excitingly beautiful as Paris by night ... Vendome by Coro". (Vendome later became another one of the company's high-end lines.)
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! This chrome necklace, which closes with an old style spring-ring clasp, was part of my personal collection. I am reluctantly offering it to a new home.
This 1920s-1930s Art Deco necklace of square-cut faceted amethyst glass stones set in silver-tone frames with a delicate chain is probably sterling, but it is unmarked. It closes with a filigree fish-hook clasp. Please note that the color saturation of the crystals is even ― any differences in the photos are due to lighting. This necklace looks lovely with several of my Art Deco amethyst earrings and bracelets – scroll down to take a look.
