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 peridot earrings with diamanté

    USD$345.00

    Peridot & Diamanté Pendant Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage peridot earrings each have a faceted, teardrop-shaped glass stone with a decorative silver-tone metal cap. It drops from diamanté-embellished links.

Most of the diamanté are cloudy, but they do not detract from the appearance of these beauties – the star attraction is the pale-green-glass drops.
