Excellent (slight darkening of clear rhinestones on clasp)
This excellent example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today’s tennis bracelet, features square-cut emerald glass stones channel set in rhodium-plated sterling silver with engraved edges and a diamanté-encrusted fold-over clasp. The superb articulation speaks to the high-quality construction of the piece.

You could wear this one with my Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by the same maker or my Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling Filigree Art Deco Bracelet. These combinations are shown in the last images.

These earrings are probably European in origin. Though Art Deco in style, something about these earrings make me think they may be from a later Revival era. Nevertheless, they are beautiful!
