    Long Art Deco necklace worn doubled

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Aquamarine & Sterling Line Bracelet

    This vintage aquamarine bracelet has square-cut glass stones channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver links with engraved edges.

Longer than many from this era, this one has substantial weight and width as well as excellent construction and articulation. The concealed clasp has a safety catch. This bracelet is signed, but I cannot identify the maker. Because of its simple, classic lines, this bracelet coordinates well with more elaborate pieces from other eras. In fact, it adorned a runway model at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. She wore this jewel with fabulous 1950s diamanté chandelier earrings, which you can see here.
