This stunning Art Deco piece, with its faceted, deep-blue-sapphire-glass stones, is an unusual and rich variation of that era’s chicklet necklace. This one has round stones alternating with larger horizontally-set rectangular stones. At the center of the necklace the rectangular stones are vertically-set, to create a focal point. The faceting on these stones is unusual, and the color is divine. The stones are set in and linked with silver-tone metal; only the clasp is marked sterling. This necklace, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, takes the chicklet style to a whole new level! Scroll down to see sapphire Art Deco bracelets to wear with this gorgeous necklace.
With its sapphire-glass-stone baguettes and diamanté accents set in sterling silver filigree, this 1920s Art Deco bracelet by Granbery has the construction and appearance of its fine jewelry counterpart. The excellent articulation and clasp with safety catch are the hallmarks of high quality. Although one of the baquettes has a small surface chip, my expert jeweler has confirmed that the stone is firmly set. Granbery advertised their flexible bracelets in the June 1925 issue of The Keystone, a jewelry trade publication. This bracelet looks lovely with several of my sapphire Art Deco necklaces and earrings — scroll down to see a selection.

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.)
