    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long 1920s Necklace

    , ,

    This 1920s necklace of alternating amethyst-glass and crystal beads was designed to complement the long-waisted, slim flapper silhouette but is equally fashionable today. This substantial piece has just been professionally restrung with knots and no clasp. Although the necklace was designed to be worn as a single long (35″) strand, you can wear it doubled if you have a slim neck. A pearl extender clasp (see the seventh photo), which makes the doubling possible, will be included with this necklace. This jewel looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see it and a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.

    Amethyst & Diamanté 1930s Austrian Earrings

    , ,

    These 1930s earrings from Austria feature three rows of vertically-set stones. In the middle are two deep-amethyst baguettes with a round diamanté on top and a faceted, teardrop-shaped diamanté at the bottom. On either side of the middle, the pattern is repeated but with a single baguette. The setting is rhodium-plated metal shaped to hold the stones together, so the pendant is one piece. A single, faceted, round diamanté sits at the earlobe. These regal Art Deco earrings are all-original screw-backs and can be modified for pierced ears. The color combination is rich, regal, and easy-to-wear.

    Black & White Bakelite Art Deco Dangle Earrings

    , ,

    These Art Deco dangle earrings are an example of the whimsical type of jewelry that could be produced when the early plastics, such as Bakelite and Galalith, became available. Each earring features a trio of black-and-white cubes dangling from chrome bars and links. Two cubes are the same length, while the third is longer. These all-original earrings have ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears. The findings are unmarked, so I don’t know the metal content. Scroll down to see an equally fun matching bracelet.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté German Choker

    , ,

    This vintage Bakelite necklace is probably from Germany. It has curved links of black Bakelite alternating with slightly larger curved links of channel-set diamanté. The components are threaded on a chain with metal spacers between each link. When laid out on a table, the necklace retains a slightly curved shape. The back of one of the Bakelite links has a small chip (shown in the last photo), but the appearance and integrity of the piece have not been compromised. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4″) and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. The look of this necklace is Machine Age and very classy.

    Blue & Cream Carved Galalith Necklace

    , ,

    Plastic beads that were molded to simulate carving were very popular in the Art Deco era. What sets this 1930s necklace apart is the colors – dark blue on cream. This combination and the design are lovely, and the different shapes of the beads add interest. Even the screw-in clasp forms a bead. I’m not sure what type of early plastic this piece is (possibly Galalith, the French equivalent of Bakelite) – it’s light, wonderful, and fun to wear in any case.

    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.
