These stunning Art Deco earrings feature an onyx glass plaque with a trio of diamanté in the center, mounted in silver-tone metal and suspended from a line of collet-set diamanté. A round onyx glass stone tops each earring. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These lovely earrings are from my personal collection. Scroll down to see Art Deco onyx bracelets to wear with these earrings.
This three-row sterling silver line bracelet by Wachenheimer Brothers has two rows of onyx-glass stones flanking a single row of diamanté in the center. The bejeweled fold-over clasp, which joins a harp-shaped link at each end, was used by the makers in the early 1930s, when they were no longer using their Diamonbartrademark. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 7/8") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.

Seven faceted oval onyx glass stones are set in sterling silver with sterling links in this lovely Art Deco bracelet. The stones are 1/4" high and have points in the center. The faceting and cut of the onyx glass gives this bracelet, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, an attractive shine. This piece, which is longer than most of its era, is possibly by George Fuller & Sons (based on the mark). I have several onyx Art Deco pieces that compliment this bracelet – scroll down to see them.
This 1920s sterling silver line bracelet with onyx-glass stones and diamanté by Fishel, Nessler is an Art Deco classic. Each faceted, square-cut stone is set in its own box.

I also have a sterling bar pin in black and white by the same maker. Scroll down to see it and other coordinating Art Deco pieces for this bracelet. Or wear it with more contemporary jewels.
These classy Hattie Carnegie 1950s earrings each feature a brown topaz rhinestone that dangles from a cluster of brown topaz beads with citrine accents. The gold-tone setting is richly textured. These earrings are clip-backs.
Sterling silver set with gemstone-colored glass stones in a crescent shape make these 1940s clip-back earrings by DeRosa very versatile. The colored stones are graduated in size and enhanced with an inner ring of diamanté. Moreover, the faux diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire and topaz form the word dearest, making these earrings acrostic (i.e., the initials of the stones form a word or name). This type of sentimental jewelry was very popular in the 19th century Victorian era, a style that inspired some 1940s jewelry designers. DeRosa pieces are always exceptionally well-made and hard to find.
