These stunning 1920s Art Deco earrings combine square-cut and round chicklet-stylecrystals in graduating sizes. They sparkle beautifully while they swing! 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.

Faceted, long amethyst glass stones are separated by trios of faceted crystals collet-set in decorative mounts in this classic 1920s Art Deco necklace. The stones are all open-back to allow for the maximum reflection of light. The settings for the three crystals closest to the spring-ring clasp have plain edges – they were added to lengthen the original 14.5 inch necklace. This necklace may be sterling, but it is unmarked (except for the clasp). The gorgeous necklace was part of my personal collection.

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 necklace closes with a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp; its style makes me think this piece was produced in Japan in the late 1940s to early 1950s, one of the Art Deco Revival eras. After the war, Japan produced a lot of high-quality costume jewelry that was exported. I have chicklet-style earrings that coordinate beautifully with this necklace – scroll down to take a look.
Rectangular, faceted onyx-glass and crystal stones with faceted onyx-glass triangles on the ends form this cut-out Art Deco bar brooch. The pattern creates a checkered effect.

I think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable. Scroll down to see Art Deco earrings and bracelets that coordinate beautifully with this brooch. Black-and-white never goes out of style!
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.
