Vintage Bracelets

Vintage bracelets from the Art Deco style of the 1920s-30s, Retro Modern pieces of the 1940s, and 1950s designs by imaginative makers in beautiful materials can be found here. An important accessory to 1920s fashion, when bare arms required adornment, bracelets in this decade were typically worn in multiples. The popular styles were one- , two- , and three-row flexible bracelets (what we now call line or tennis bracelets), filigree bracelets, and bangles. Bracelets got wider and more three-dimensional in the 1930s, as the Machine Age style took hold. In the 1940s, gold-tone snake chains, basket-weave links, and flexible spirals were popular styles. The 1950s produced tailored pieces as well as fabulous fakes. For more bracelets, see Sets & Parures.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Flexible Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,

    Vintage Bakelite jewelry as beautiful as this German flexible bracelet from the 1930s is hard to find. It has vertical links of diamanté alternating with black Bakelite.

    Crystal Bangle Bracelet by H. Payton

    , ,

    This crystal bangle bracelet by H. Payton is a style that was all the rage in the 1920s. The company is best known by their PAYCO mark. Bracelets like this one were available in many colors of glass to imitate gemstones. With open-back faceted, square-cut stones to let light pass through, this piece goes with everything. It also looks great with other bangles and/or line bracelets of the era. Women typically wore multiple bracelets back then, and I confess that I’ve adopted that practice as part of my own personal style. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. A few of the stones have tiny chips, and there’s a space between the stone next to the hinge and the metal (shown in the last photo).
