Quickview Vintage Necklaces, 1930s Jewelry, Unsigned Jewelry
Faceted spring-green glass beads with chrome links, balls and end caps make this 1920s-1930s Art Deco necklace a delightful accessory for any season. This necklace, which is light weight and has a spring-ring clasp, is probably European in origin. A lovely piece for spring and summer wear by a woman who looks best in warm colors.
Quickview Vintage Brooches & Pins, 1930s Jewelry, Unsigned Jewelry
This Art Deco brooch is fashioned from a half-dome of green plastic (which may be Galalith, the French equivalent of Bakelite) embellished with rings of diamanté. This versatile piece is fun to wear and probably European in origin. I love the mix of materials and the choice of green!
Quickview Vintage Earrings, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned Jewelry
A faceted, peridot-glass-teardrop with a silver-tone metal caps drops from diamanté-embellished links in these delicate and elegant 1920s Art Deco earrings. The yellow metal shepherd hooks, original to the earrings, make me think they are European in origin. Most of the diamanté are cloudy, but they do not detract from the appearance of these beauties — the star attraction is each pale-green-glass pendant.
