Emerald, Diamanté & Sterling Art Deco Line Bracelet by Otis
7" x 3/16"
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. Line bracelets (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. 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. You could also wear this bracelet with an emerald brooch (I have one by Otis) or any of my emerald Art Deco necklaces — scroll down to see a large selection of coordinating pieces.
