About 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.

    Trifari Retro Modern bracelet

    Ruby, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling 1940s Trifari Bracelet

    , ,
    This Trifari bracelet was made during WWII, when costume jewelry makers had to use sterling silver because base metals were limited to war-related manufacturing. This piece features pairs of facing scroll-shaped links adorned with diamanté. Each pair is separated by a pair of faceted, oval, prong-set ruby-glass stones. Simple flat gold links hold the elements together and end with a fold-over clasp. The red stones really complement the gold-washed setting. This lovely bracelet can be worn anytime, anywhere.
