    Blue Blown Glass Bead Necklace with Rings

    , ,
    This vintage glass bead necklace has clusters of blown-glass beads in shades of blue wound together with wire and linked with clear glass rings. Although the spring-ring clasp doesn’t provide a clue to the necklace’s origin, I believe it was made in Europe. This piece was recently restrung by my expert jeweler. This wreath-like jewel from my personal collection is a lovely topping to a round-neck garment and the perfect colors for women who dress in a cool palette.

    Blue Glass & Chrome 1930s Fringe Necklace

    , ,
    Cobalt-blue glass tubes and chrome balls dangle from this 1930s fringe necklace. The chrome links and fringe elements have a Machine-Age look and give this piece lots of movement! Some of the blue glass tubes have minor chips, but they are not noticeable when this beauty is worn. This chrome necklace, which closes with an old style spring-ring clasp, was part of my personal collection. I am reluctantly offering it to a new home. A perfect adornment for a woman who looks best in cool colors.

    Camphor Glass & Chrysoprase Bead Sautoir

    , ,
    The slender, barrel-shaped beads in this camphor glass necklace are flanked by small, round chrysoprase beads. Each trio is connected with tubular white-metal links that form a Y. At the bottom is an inverted V-shaped white-metal element that is embellished with marcasites and that holds five rows of fringe. This lovely 1920s sautoir is lightweight. It closes with a box clasp and safety catch. This wonderful Art Deco jewel – which I believe originated in Europe – is from my personal collection.

    Camphor Glass Earrings with Diamanté & Onyx

    ,
    These camphor glass earrings were made in the Art Deco style and were very difficult to photograph in the hanging position. The camphor glass is more opaque than the first picture suggests; the second is a more accurate depiction. The pendants are embellished with diamanté triangles and rectangular onyx-glass stones. The ear wires with lever-backs for pierced ears are original to the earrings and unmarked. I have seen similar earrings in Ginger Moro’s book (European Designer Jewelry, p. 49) described as being made from vintage components. From my perspective, the date of their manufacture doesn’t detract from the elegance and glamour these earrings provide the wearer. Scroll down to see the same design in lapis. Both pairs were in my personal collection.

    Carnelian Ring German 1920s Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage carnelian earrings feature rings and beads suspended from sterling silver chain. At 3 1/8” in length, these fabulous German Art Deco creations are fun to wear. I love the way the chain goes around the rings. This "life-saver" motif was popular in 1920s jewelry. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings are from my personal collection. Carnelian is a beautiful and versatile color for women who look best in warm hues. Scroll down to see a complementary bracelet, also German-made.

    Carnelian, Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling German Bracelet

    , ,
    This marcasite bracelet has faceted carnelian and onyx glass stones set in sterling silver panels in an Art Deco design. This piece is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the 1920s-1930s. Based on its width, I'm dating this bracelet to the 1920s, when bracelets were narrow and worn in multiples. This piece has a concealed clasp with a safety catch and was part of my personal collection.

    Chrysoprase & Crystal Chicklet-Style German Necklace

    , ,
    Although unmarked, the design and quality of this early-1930s chrysoprase (glass?) and crystal chicklet-style necklace make me think it was made in Germany. The faceting of the crystals is superb, and the mountings of the stones are highly-decorated. The silver-tone metal may be sterling, although the stone frames are unmarked. This gorgeous piece from my personal collection closes with an older-style spring-ring clasp. Scroll down to see Art Deco earrings and bracelets to wear with this jewel.

    Chrysoprase & Crystal Dangling Earrings

    , ,
    Two faceted, oblong chrysoprase (glass?) stones with a faceted, round collet-set crystal at the bottom form these classic 1920s earrings. Each stone is separated by a ring link, so there's plenty of movement here. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. Note that although the open-back bottom crystals appear dark in the first photo, they are, in fact, clear and sparkly (as in the second photo).

    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.

    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.

    The design and construction of this tiered necklace, a variation on the 1920s chicklet-style, is first class.

    Citrine & Vermeil Sterling German Brooch

    The focal point of this highly-decorated, gold-washed sterling silver brooch is a flower. Its center is a faceted, round citrine-glass stone. The twisted metal decoration on the sides gives this piece a bit of a Machine Age feel. The markings indicate that this brooch was handmade in Germany, using sterling with a higher silver content (935) than the 925 North American standard. Please note that gold plating on the center flower is in tact, even though the photos suggest wear. A petite and lovely jewel.
