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.

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.
