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.

    Crystal Chicklet Dangling Earrings

    , ,
    These dangling crystal earrings from the 1920s are formed by three faceted, square-cut chicklets, with a diamond-shaped stone set at the earlobe. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. The mountings and findings may be sterling silver, but only the screw-backs are marked. Because the chicklets are separated by rings, these earrings have lots of movement and light reflection. These Art Deco jewels sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.

    Diamanté & Silver Vintage Dangle Earrings

    Emerald & Crystal Triangle Necklace

    , ,

This piece is Art Deco costume jewelry at its best – the use of strong contrasting colors and a geometric shape. This stunning necklace from my personal collection closes with a spring-ring clasp. Although a few of the crystal triangles have tiny chips, they aren't visible when this piece is worn.
