This Art Deco necklace of square-cut, faceted pale-sapphire-glass stones is another variation of the era’s popular chicklet necklace. The stones are set in silver-tone frames at the center of a delicate chain that may be sterling silver, but it is unmarked. This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp.
This blue and green glass bead 1950s necklace is another example of Hattie Carnegie's extraordinary flare with beads. Here most beads are bi-color. The shapes and sizes vary, and the predominant colors are interspersed with white and clear beads and clear crystal spacers. This necklace has substantial weight and an adjustable hook-and-tail clasp.
Although it's unsigned, this 1930s Mauerwerk(brickwork) necklace has been well-documented as a JakobBengel piece. It features green and black enamel on chrome with an attractive link chain and a spring-ring clasp. This German Machine Age necklace is extremely flexible and can be worn on either side.

An alternative to the chicklet, these square-cut glass emeralds are encased in silver-tone metal and are slightly graduated in size. This 1920s-1930s Art Deco choker features a decorative hidden tongue-in-groove clasp. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the necklace length (14 1/2") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. It looks great with my other emerald Art Deco pieces — scroll down to take a look.
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.
