Wachenheimer Bros. Jewelry

This fine collection of Wachenheimer Brothers jewelry includes sterling silver Diamonbar bracelets, perhaps their best-known product line, and late-1920s earrings. These earrings are from the later Wachenheimer Real Stone Jewelry line, which features semi-precious stones mounted in sterling silver. The Diamonbar trademark was first used as the name of the company’s sterling silver bar pin, which was introduced in 1916 in a series of ads in Vogue magazine. Two utility patents granted to Harry Wachenheimer pertain to the construction of the company’s bracelets. In operation from 1905 to 1934, this highly-regarded company went out of business during the Great Depression. Read more about Wachenheimer Brothers.

    Amethyst Bangle Bracelet

    , ,

    This amethyst bangle bracelet from the 1920s has faceted, square-cut glass stones channel-set in sterling silver with engraved edges. This piece is wider and more substantial than its contemporaries. In fact, its size, weight, design, and components are nearly identical to one of my own Lady Gloria Hinged Bracelets by Wachenheimer Brothers. This piece is unsigned on the tongue (where Diamonbar bangles were marked), so I can’t be sure. Either way, this bracelet is so beautiful and well-made that you won’t be disappointed. It was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. Scroll down to see some lovely complementary Art Deco earrings and necklaces.

    Faceted, square-cut golden-topaz (or deep-citrine) glass stones channel-set in sterling silver form this Diamonbar flexible bracelet. It closes with a concealed clasp and safety chain. At 7 1/2″ by 3/8″, this bracelet is longer and wider than most made in this style in the 1920s.

You can see the utility patent here, the second one shown below the maker’s name. This piece was part of my personal collection and is the perfect adornment for a woman who looks best in warm colors.
