    Designed by William Hobé's sons, this 1950s set features layered amethyst and aquamarine glass stones in a gold-plated setting.  The contrasting colors and shapes make this brooch and clip-back earrings the right pieces for all seasons.

    USD$295.00

    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long 1920s Necklace

    This 1920s necklace of alternating amethyst-glass and crystal beads was designed to complement the long-waisted, slim flapper silhouette but is equally fashionable today. This substantial piece has just been professionally restrung with knots and no clasp. Although the necklace was designed to be worn as a single long (35″) strand, you can wear it doubled if you have a slim neck. A pearl extender clasp (see the seventh photo), which makes the doubling possible, will be included with this necklace. This jewel looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see it and a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.

    Amethyst & Peridot Flower 1950s Alice Caviness Brooch

    This brooch from the 1950s has navettes and round glass stones in shades of amethyst and peridot. They are layered like the petals of a flower, with a lovely art-glass stone in both colors at the center. The setting is gold-tone with a roll-over safety clasp. This color combination is unusual and serene. The darkening of the metal in some spots does not diminish the beauty of this piece. I think this designer’s work is often overlooked.

    Amethyst Bangle Bracelet

    This amethyst bangle bracelet from the 1920s has faceted, square-cut glass stones channel-set in sterling silver with engraved edges. This piece is wider and more substantial than its contemporaries. In fact, its size, weight, design, and components are nearly identical to one of my own Lady Gloria Hinged Bracelets by Wachenheimer Brothers. This piece is unsigned on the tongue (where Diamonbar bangles were marked), so I can't be sure. Either way, this bracelet is so beautiful and well-made that you won't be disappointed. It was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. Scroll down to see some lovely complementary Art Deco earrings and necklaces.

    Amethyst Bead Long 1920s Necklace

    This vintage amethyst bead necklace never goes out of style. It is a long (31”) strand of graduating faceted, deep-purple glass beads with crystal disk spacers. This piece has been professionally restrung without a clasp and has substantial weight. Made in the 1920s, it was designed to be worn as a single, long strand, to compliment the drop-waist fashion of the day. As an alternative, the third photo shows the necklace worn doubled, with the aid of a device called a pearl extender clasp (shown in the fifth photo). I will include one with this purchase. This necklace looks fabulous with another long 1920s necklace, which is also weighty, that is shown in the last photo.

    Aquamarine & Pavé 1950s Diadem Brooch/Necklace by Adolph Katz for Coro

    The pavé center is surrounded by aquamarine-glass stones on this brooch that Adolph Katz designed and Coro named Diadem. It has a gold-plated woven border with a roll-over safety-clasp and a loop that allows the piece to be worn as a necklace. An advertisement for a demi-parure in the same design but with all diamanté, reproduced in Marcia Brown's book on Coro, reads:  "Diadem Jewels by Coro ... To cast a lovely light about you, an aura of excitement, a glow of elegance ... first magnitude jewels at their starriest heights". Included with the brooch is the gold-plated double snake chain with a diamanté-adorned tongue-in-groove clasp that is the same design as the brooch center. The snake chain was made for a very slender neck. Please note the chain length (14 1/4") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece.

    Front of black Bakelite Machine Age necklace
    USD$295.00

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté German Choker

    This vintage Bakelite necklace is probably from Germany. It has curved links of black Bakelite alternating with slightly larger curved links of channel-set diamanté. The components are threaded on a chain with metal spacers between each link. When laid out on a table, the necklace retains a slightly curved shape. The back of one of the Bakelite links has a small chip (shown in the last photo), but the appearance and integrity of the piece have not been compromised. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. The look of this necklace is Machine Age and very classy.

    Black Enamel, Diamanté & Sterling Double Clip Brooch

    This enamel brooch with diamanté embellishments in a sterling silver setting was made by Ralph De Rosa in the late-1940s. The detailed design is a fine example of this exceptional maker's work. This piece can be worn as a single brooch or as separate dress clips. (The double-prong fastener works well with heavier fabrics, such as wool dresses or blazers.) The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a sterling silver or white-gold chain (neither is included). I've used necklaces from my own jewelry box to show you how beautiful they look with the clip and how versatile this jewel is. I would wear faux or real diamond studs with this gorgeous piece.

Even the screw-in clasp forms a bead. I’m not sure what type of early plastic this piece is (possibly Galalith, the French equivalent of Bakelite) – it’s light, wonderful, and fun-to-wear in any case. This item is no longer available.

    This Adolph Katz-designed brooch is a stunning example of the Retro Modern style and the pieces created for Coro's high-end line in the 1940s. The vermeil-sterling-silver center looks like folds of a fabric with pavé-trimmed white metal at each end. The same trim is wound around the center. From there emanate two boughs of faceted, oval blue-topaz glass flowers with round ruby-glass accents. The pin closes with a fold-over safety clasp. This delicious brooch was advertised in the February 1, 1946 issue of Vogue.

    Chrome Necklace & Bracelet with Glass Links

    This necklace and matching bracelet with chrome and molded glass links is so unusual that its origin has been debated by the expert in European costume jewelry – Ginger Moro. Her book European Designer Jewelry describes the pieces as Belgian (where the Art Deco style was “a synthesis of French and German styles”). When I purchased the set, she told me that she had bought it in Brussels about 40 years ago from a dealer who also had sold her some Bengel jewelry. At that time, before the first Bengel book was published, no one knew about the firm. Since then, Moro and the dealer have decided that this set had to be by Bengel for three reasons: “nobody else was doing any chrome jewelry that sophisticated”; the dealer had bought it from the same source as other Bengel pieces; and they discovered that Bengel was working with glass links. I don’t think the maker matters. This Machine Age look is modern and striking! The color of the glass segments, which are pale pink in reality, is very difficult to capture in photographs. As Ginger said, the glass "melts into your skin". The necklace closes with a hook; the bracelet has a spring-ring clasp. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4") and check your neck size before purchasing this set.

The combination of colors and the shape of the stones make this jewel unique and versatile. Scroll down to see Art Deco pieces that coordinate well with this shade of citrine and with crystal.

    Citrine & Diamanté Flower 1950s Brooch by Bogoff

    This 1950s brooch by Bogoff features a delicate flower set with multiple shapes of citrine-glass stones and a pavé stem. The setting is gold-plated base metal with a  roll-over safety clasp. The dating of this piece is interesting, as the design patent was granted on August 22, 1950, yet the maker's mark includes a copyright symbol, which typically wasn't used on jewelry until 1955. This piece seems to be a 1950 design that was executed after 1955.

    Citrine & Silver Filigree Bangle

    This silver filigree bangle with intricately-pierced metal has a beautifully faceted, cushion-cut citrine-glass stone as its centerpiece. Wholesale jewelry catalogs of the 1920s described the finish on these bracelets as “permanent white” (i.e., they were designed to not tarnish). In fact, the piece is probably plated with chromium. This hinged bracelet has diamanté accents. Although most have darkened, their condition does not detract from the beauty of this bracelet. This jewel closes with a concealed clasp and safety chain. A dainty, elegant, and well-made addition to any jewelry wardrobe. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 3/8") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.

However, even though this bracelet has these WB characteristics, it doesn’t have the Diamonbar mark.

    Diamanté 1930s Dress Clips

    This pair of triangular-shaped Art Deco dress clips is beautifully embellished with baguettes, round diamanté, and a center marquis-shaped stone, all set in rhodium-plated base metal. The cut-outs enhance the intricate design. In addition to wearing one or both clips as intended, you can also wear one as a pendant. The last photo shows it on a sterling chain, so you can see the elegant look this combination creates. (The chain is not included.) Although these clips are marked with a utility patent number, it is unreadable. Quite a mystery! Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets.

    Diamanté 1950s Choker with Buckle by Mazer Bros.

    A raised, fixed buckle adorned with diamanté in a unique assortment of shapes and sizes is the focal point on this late-1940s to early-1950s choker by Mazer Bros. The remaining necklace has a line of emerald-cut diamanté, each set in its own rhodium-plated link. Both ends finish with a square-cut stone, and the fold-over clasp is jeweled. This necklace was difficult to photograph because it contours to the neck and, therefore, does not lay flat. This choker was made for a slim neck. Please note the necklace length (14 1/2") and measure your neck before purchasing. The matching bracelet is also available – scroll down to see it.

Ten rays emanate from there, each with a sapphire-glass bead; a ribbed, egg-shaped emerald-glass stone; and tiny faux pearl accents. The construction is superb: a scallop-edged, round filigree plaque supports the center and holds the pin with a roll-over safety clasp. Each ray is supported by its own round filigree plaque topped with a triangular frame. Because of the complexity of the brooch’s design, I suggest wearing simple pearl earrings and/or a pearl bracelet. After all, the brooch should be the star of the show!

I've included two examples from my own jewelry box (which are not for sale), for illustration purposes. You may have better ideas. The photos also show how the piece comes apart. Because one of the large emerald stones has lost one of its claws, my expert jeweler strongly advises you to pull the clips apart by grasping the pearl edges. He cleaned and re-glued the affected stone, so it is now secure. What an exceptional and versatile piece!

    Layers of emerald, sapphire and golden topaz glass stones are combined with black metal flower petals in this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hattie Carnegie. Some of the stones appear teal in color, depending on the light. This set is a fine example of her imaginative color combinations, favored floral motifs, and complexity of design. What a knock-out! The settings are japanned metal, and the brooch has a roll-over safety clasp. When worn, the ear clips face each other and beautifully frame your face. The last photo shows how fantastic this brooch looks on a dress sash. Although the brooch has a ring designed to allow the piece to be worn as a pendant, my expert jeweler advises that the ring is not sturdy and cannot be replaced without damaging the back of the brooch. I don't see this point as a problem – I'm just mentioning it in the interest of full disclosure.

    Milk Glass Bead French 1950s Torsade by Louis Rousselet

    Five strands of milk-glass beads in varying sizes are twisted into a torsade, with a sixth strand in the center. The tongue-in-groove clasp is topped with a white glass button. This lovely necklace by the incomparable Louis Rousselet is actually signed on the back of the clasp – a true rarity. (Most of this maker's pieces had only a hang tag rather than the maker's mark on the piece itself.) I have other lovely French pieces by or in the style of this maker -- scroll down to see them.

    These milk glass earrings by Hattie Carnegie are substantial and incredibly well-made. They feature prong-set, opaque-white-glass stones wrapped in gold wire and accented with diamanté.

    Onyx & Crystal Art Deco Necklace with 3 Drops

    This necklace features at its center a trio of faceted, square-cut clear stones from which dangle faceted round crystals that alternate with faceted-oblong-onyx-glass stones. The same pattern is repeated up the necklace to the delicate paper-clip chain that finishes the piece. Although the spring-ring clasp and jump ring are marked "sterling", I don't know the content of the rest of the silver-tone metal. This necklace was shortened for me, but you could easily add an extender. This European masterpiece from my personal collection is stunning and perfect for a v-neckline!

    Onyx & Crystal Bead Art Deco Necklace & Earrings Set

    This Art Deco necklace with onyx glass and crystal beads is incredibly versatile. It can be worn long or short, because the necklace separates into two. You can wear just the largest beads in a 19" length or the small and narrow beads in a 15 1/4" length. It's like having three necklaces in one! Believe it or not, I found the necklace and the earrings separately. The original screw-backs on the earrings were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. This set, which was in my personal collection, is incredibly versatile and of the moment.

    Opal Art Deco Necklace, Bracelet & Earrings Set

    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.
