    Aquamarine & Sterling Line Bracelet

    , , ,

    This vintage aquamarine bracelet has square-cut glass stones channel set in rhodium-plated sterling silver links with engraved edges. It is an excellent example of an Art Deco line bracelet of the 1920s-1930s. Usually worn in multiples, these bracelets were the forerunners of today’s tennis bracelets but were called flexible bracelets in their 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. Scroll down to see some Art Deco aquamarine jewels as well as some from other decades.

    Diamanté German Flexible Bracelet

    , , ,

    This German flexible bracelet features curved, rhodium-plated links with channel-set diamanté. Its design and construction remind me of other pieces made in Germany in the 1930s and 1950. A distinctive element of this one is the use of a small disk between each link. This bracelet is wider and longer than most I’ve seen from these decades. Although this piece has a maker’s mark, I cannot identify the company. Scroll down to see a necklace by the same maker as well as an unsigned one with the same construction.

    Diamanté German Snake Chain Necklace

    , ,

    This snake chain necklace from Germany has a curved centerpiece with a Machine Age look. The white-metal links with channel-set stones are separated by trios of flat-metal links. All links are connected with flat disks at the top and bottom (probably to cover a connecting chain). At each end is a triangle-shaped element formed by two long and one short link with channel-set stones. This piece closes with a spring-ring clasp. Although I had always associated snake chains with the 1940s, I just learned that they were first introduced in 1850. This necklace has a maker’s mark, but I have been unable to identify the company. Although this necklace was made for a slim neck (the length is 14 1/2″), you could add a chain extender if needed. The absence of an adjustable closure makes me think this piece was made before the 1950s. Scroll down to see a bracelet by the same maker.

    Onyx & Sterling Art Deco Bracelet

    , , ,

    Seven faceted oval onyx glass stones are set in sterling silver with sterling links in this lovely Art Deco bracelet. The stones are 1/4″ high and have points in the center. The faceting and cut of the onyx glass gives this bracelet, which closes with a spring-ring clasp, an attractive shine. This piece, which is longer than most of its era, is possibly by George Fuller & Sons (based on the mark). Several onyx Art Deco pieces that compliment this bracelet are available – scroll down to see them.

    Rock Crystal 1950s Necklace & Earrings Set

    , ,

    This faceted rock crystal bead necklace with matching earrings and sterling findings comes in its original box. Made in the 1950s, this set is reminiscent of similar pieces made in the Art Deco era. The original screw-backs on the earrings were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. The trademark Elco may refer to Miglo Jewelry Co.
