This wonderful bracelet is attractive, yet neutral enough to be worn with a variety of attire for a range of day and evening activities.

Five polished chrysoprase-glass stones are separated by geometric chrome spacers that give this 1930s Art Deco necklace a real Machine Age 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.

This diamanté and sterling silver Art Deco line bracelet by Dorsons takes the line bracelet design one step further. Square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver are enhanced with two squares of baguettes. This well-made bracelet with excellent articulation has a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp. Pieces with all clear rhinestones are really hard to photograph, and this one is no exception. All stones are clear and bright, and the overall effect is much brighter than my photos.
