1920s Jewelry

About 1920s Jewelry

This unique selection of 1920s jewelry includes long earrings, long and short necklaces, narrow bracelets, and brooches. Originally designed for the flapper, these jewels are equally stylish today. Many 1920s costume pieces were made from materials such as white metals, clear and colored glass stones and beads, faux pearls, diamanté, and marcasites, in imitation of fine jewelry. Filigree pieces in white and gilt metal were also popular. Colorful early plastics (Celluloid, Bakelite, and Galalith) were fashioned into novelty pieces at this time. Jewelry in the Art Deco style made its debut in the 1920s.

  • Vintage drop earrings with blue glass and diamanté
    Blue art glass and diamanté vintage drop earrings
    USD$245.00

    Blue Art Glass & Diamanté Drop Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage drop earrings feature blue art-glass teardrops with faint striations and filigree caps. They fall from links of baguettes and round diamanté set in silver-tone metal. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These unusual Art Deco earrings are a lovely shade of blue. Although the diamanté are ageing, the blue stones – which are the star attraction – are perfect. I bought these earrings for my personal collection, but I'm reluctantly offering them for sale. They're the perfect adornment for a woman who looks best in cool colors.

    Carnelian, Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling German Bracelet

    , ,
    This vintage carnelian bracelet has faceted glass stones set in rectangular panels. Each is outlined with alternating faux onyx and marcasites. Even the connecting links are adorned. This sterling silver piece is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the 1920s-1930s. Based on its width, I'm dating this jewel to the 1920s, when bracelets were narrow and often worn in multiples. This piece has a concealed clasp with a safety catch and was part of my personal collection.

  • Statement choker necklace with red, black, green & diamanté disks
    Front view of necklace w/faceted, colorful disks
    USD$245.00

    Chrysoprase, Onyx, & Ruby Disk Choker with Rondelles

    , ,
    This statement choker necklace features faceted, opaque chrysoprase-, onyx- and ruby-glass disks and rondelles. The components are strung on metal chain. The necklace closes with a screw-in clasp formed by two of the disks. Based on the construction of this piece, I think it is European in origin. As often happens with necklaces made like this one, the chain has stretched. I don’t recommend having a jeweler cut the excess – just keep it at the back. This multi-colored, versatile necklace can be worn with many Art Deco jewels, depending on the color you wish to emphasize — scroll down to see a selection. Or wear your real or faux diamond studs to complete the look.

    Citrine & crystal Art Deco tiered necklace
    USD$395.00

    Citrine & Crystal 1920s Tiered Necklace

    , ,
    The design and construction of this tiered necklace, a variation on the 1920s chicklet-style, is first class. Golden yellow, square-cut glass stones alternate with oblong crystals to form the necklace and tiered centerpiece. Round dangling citrine-glass stones add the movement that was so essential in the Art Deco era. All of the stones are faceted and mounted in decorated, silver-tone metal.

    Variation of chicklet necklace w/parallelograms
    USD$245.00

    Citrine & Crystal Chicklet Necklace

    , ,
    This chicklet necklace is a variation of the typical Art Deco style. Instead of square-cut stones, this one is fashioned from deep-citrine-glass and crystals in the shape of parallelograms. The stones are set in unmarked silver-tone frames. Some of the crystals have tiny corner chips, but they are not visible when the necklace is worn. 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.

  • Silver filigree bangle with citrine center stone
    Filigree & citrine 1920s hinged bracelet
    USD$195.00

    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.

The stones are channel-set in narrow, curved sterling silver with engraved edges. The ends meet with a pair of diamanté-set scrolls rather than a clasp.
