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.
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.

These 1950s diamanté earrings are definitely "top-of-the-line Alice Caviness jewelry!" (Julia Carroll). They feature large octagonal clear rhinestones with clear crystal beads and diamanté-studded beads attached to a filigree disk. The position of the large stones and their faceting maximize the flash the earrings produce. They are so flashy though that they're difficult to photograph — the yellow that appears along the edges of some of the stones is only a reflection. The silver-tone settings have clip-backs, which, unfortunately, are too short to sustain the weight of the large bottom stone in each earring. A clever buyer could remove that stone and attach smaller stones and/or crystal beads to the filigree back, and make these earrings more wearable.
