"SILVER" on necklace & bracelet clasps
This necklace, bracelet and earrings set features faceted blue-glass stones that resemble opals or moonstones (I can’t decide which) in fluted silver settings. The lively stones have pointed backs. The mountings and chains may be sterling, but the necklace fish-hook clasp and bracelet tongue-in-groove clasp are both marked “silver”. The unmarked earrings are screw-backs. The bracelet clasp makes me think this set was made in the 1950s Art Deco Revival period.
Schreiner pieces typically feature stunning art glass and imaginative color combinations, and these lavish 1950s earrings are no exception. A large citrine-colored art glass cabochon is surrounded by oval pale amethyst (lavender) and round citrine glass stones, with dangling pale sapphire and lavender crystal beads. The setting is silver-tone metal with clip-backs. What a lovely statement! You can wear these show-stopper earrings with the latest fashion trends as well as your perennial favorites and receive compliments every time. I have to say these are the most extraordinary earrings I've ever seen!
This ruby rhinestone and pearl 1950s bracelet by Hattie Carnegie features rhodium-plated metal with large oval ruby glass cabochons separated by diamanté and faux pearls in raised settings. The bracelet closes with a fold-over clasp. This piece is another elegant and timeless design from one of the best makers of the era. Scroll down to see my Ruby, Diamanté & Pearl Post-war Dangle Earrings, also by Carnegie, for a great coordinating accessory.
In this 1950s bracelet is another color combination that shouts Schiaparelli's name: here her signature color (shocking pink) is paired with red, black and clear rhinestones set in heavy silver-tone metal. This statement bracelet has a fold-over clasp and safety chain. What a glorious piece!
