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. Read more about 1920s jewelry and fashion.

  • German Art Deco marcasite & chrysoprase brooch
    Close-up of chyrsoprase & marcasite brooch
    $ 175

    Chrysoprase, Marcasite & Sterling German Brooch

    , ,
    This Art Deco marcasite brooch has three faceted chrysoprase (glass?) stones set in sterling silver. It exhibits typical German construction and their aesthetic of the 1920s-1930s. The 935 mark refers to a higher silver content than the sterling standard, which is 925 parts per 1000 – not uncommon in German pieces of the era. This brooch was in my personal collection and was among the first pieces I bought when I focused on Art Deco jewelry. You can wear this petite jewel at the throat of a blouse or on the collar of a jacket to great effect. Scroll down to see Art Deco chrysoprase earrings that look lovely with this piece. This green is lovely on women who look best in warm colors.

    Chrysoprase, Onyx, & Ruby Disk Choker with Rondelles

    , ,
    This Art Deco choker 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 colorful and 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
    $ 475

    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. The construction makes me think this piece was made in Europe. This divine jewel, which I initially purchased for myself, closes with a spring-ring clasp.

  • Silver filigree bangle with citrine center stone
    Filigree & citrine 1920s hinged bracelet
    $ 195

    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.

    These Art Deco crystal earrings are long pendants that end with beautiful princess-cut stones. Each is topped with a trio of diamanté. Two smaller ones are separated by white-metal links.

    Crystal Bangle Bracelet by H. Payton

    , ,
    This crystal bangle bracelet by H. Payton is a style that was all the rage in the 1920s. The company is best known by their PAYCO mark. Bracelets like this one were available in many colors of glass to imitate gemstones. With open-back faceted, square-cut stones to let light pass through, this piece goes with everything. It also looks great with other bangles and/or line bracelets of the era. Women typically wore multiple bracelets back then, and I confess that I’ve adopted that practice as part of my own personal style. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. A few of the stones have tiny chips, and there's a space between the stone next to the hinge and the metal (shown in the last photo).

    These vintage crystal bead earrings are formed from a faceted, lantern-shaped bead that dangles from a row of crystal beads separated by onyx disks. At the top is a filigree plaque. The original screw-backs were replaced by sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I like long earrings, so I had the lever-backs added above the filigree. If these earrings are a bit too long for you, a jeweler could remove the lever-backs and add a sterling post to the back of the filigree. These Art Deco earrings are from my personal collection.
