This dainty and elegant 1920s Art Deco necklace features three faceted, square-cut emerald glass chicklets suspended from chromium-plated filigree links. The chicklets alternate with triangle-shaped filigree panels embellished with smaller, square-cut emerald glass stones. The paper-clip chain closes with a spring-ring 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 flexiblebracelets 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.
Sterling-silver filigree links are adorned with alternating emerald-glass stones and diamanté on the links in the center of the classic 1920s Art Deco bracelet. The construction and clasp are the same as those on filigree bracelets fashioned from precious metals. You can wear this piece with many of my emerald Art Deco brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings — scroll down to see a selection.
Lapis glass beads separated by decorative chrome links and a center Galalith(?) bead with chrome end caps form this German Machine Age necklace. The same piece in other colors has been attributed to Bengel by a British expert. This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp, which may be a replacement (it is brass in color). The center bead has a minor flaw that probably occurred during manufacture. This small imperfection does not detract from the beauty or wearability of this necklace.

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.)
Frosted blue glass beads with gold-tone metal disks strung on chain comprise this elegant and versatile 1920-1930s French Art Deco necklace. It closes with a bee-hive screw-in clasp. The beads are unusual, and the look is classic.
