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.

    Diamanté & Sterling Bracelet by Dorsons

    , ,
    This diamanté and sterling silver 1940s bracelet by Dorsons takes the line-bracelet design one step further.

All-diamanté pieces are really hard to photograph, and this one is no exception. All stones are clear and bright, and the overall effect is much brighter than my photos indicate.

  • Otis sterling bracelet with diamanté
    Diamante & sterling Art Deco bracelet
    $ 185

    Diamanté & Sterling Line Bracelet by Otis

    , ,
    This Otis sterling bracelet is a lovely example of an Art Deco line bracelet, the forerunner of today's tennis bracelet. It features faceted, square-cut diamanté channel-set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. Engraved edges and a diamanté-embellished fold-over clasp complete the design. The excellent articulation speaks to its high-quality construction, which actually was the same as that used by Wachenheimer Bros. (Read about the companies' connection.) Bracelets in this style (known as flexible bracelets in that era) were all the rage in the 1920s-1930s and were typically worn in multiples. You can see this one paired with other line bracelets in the photos. Although the stones have aged a bit, this jewel still has lots of sparkle. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.

  • Silver buckle bracelet by Otis
    Sterling & diamante two-row buckle bracelet
    $ 245

    Diamanté & Sterling Silver Buckle Bracelet by Otis

    , ,
    This silver buckle bracelet features two rows of round diamanté set in sterling. The concealed clasp has a flat, rectangular tongue with a floral-decorated release button in the center; the straight safety-clasp swivels. This style of clasp was used by Wachenheimer Brothers ("WB") late in their production. The back is stamped “3 20 17”, the date the patent was issued to them for the way the links are connected. However, even though this bracelet has these WB characteristics, it doesn’t have the Diamonbar mark. Some of the components or the entire piece may have been made by WB, but I believe this bracelet was sold by Otis, the company that purchased the equipment and inventory from WB after they went out of business. Read more about the connection between these companies. Scroll down to see a selection of lovely coordinating pieces.

    Diamanté 1950s Expansion Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    This expansion bracelet is unlike any you've ever seen! Four rows of rhodium-plated curved-top links set with diamanté stretch to allow you to put on the bracelet – it has no clasp. What's amazing is that the mechanism for stretching the piece – a series of springs – is concealed. The last photo shows part of the British utility patent for this construction. This bracelet is the only piece in this group with the 'SIMEX' trademark. I can’t figure out how to tell you the size of this piece other than how it fits me. My wrist is 6 ¾”, and the bracelet fits me fine. It stretches to the diameter of the widest part of my hand – 8 ½” – that’s required to put it on. Scroll down to see complementary necklaces.

    Diamanté 5-row Honeycomb Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    Art Deco fashion jewelry made in the 1930s in Germany was unlike anything produced by North American companies. The foundation of this maker’s designs is an oblong link that holds channel-set stones. With this bracelet, they took this concept to another level. These flat, rhodium-plated links with three diamanté form a honeycomb pattern. A large stone is in the center, with a smaller one on each side. This bracelet has five rows; it closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. Scroll down to see another bracelet by this maker in the same pattern with three rows.

    Diamanté German Flexible Bracelet

    This German flexible bracelet features curved, rhodium-plated links with channel-set diamanté. Its design and construction remind me of other pieces made in Germany in the 1930s and 1950.

    This diamanté silver bracelet has two rows of long, slender, slightly-curved links of channel-set stones. Each link is trapezoid in shape. A single row of slimmer, short, pointed-top connecting links is in the middle. The setting is rhodium-plated white metal. This bracelet closes with a concealed clasp and safety chain. This piece is unsigned, but it reminds me of the work of the German company Schreiber & Hiller. I think this bracelet was made in the 1930s, but it could have been made around 1950, when German companies were re-emerging after the war. Scroll down to see some complementary pieces.

The design is a pattern of three "roof-shaped" vertical links of channel-set diamanté followed by one with emerald glass stones. The stones are relatively large, and this bracelet is the widest I've seen from this company. The rhodium-plated links in this substantial piece are joined by a concealed mesh band that was patented by another German maker. This bracelet closes with a concealed clasp.

    $ 295

    Gold 1940s Cuff Bracelet by Forstner

    , ,
    This vintage cuff bracelet is a variation of Forstner’s flexible bracelets, a popular style in the 1940s. This piece is formed from a tapering double-row with a decorative, fixed buckle. The polished finish of the center buckle adds a nice contrast to the coiled sides. Jewelry by Forstner was very well made and has retained its quality. Note that this piece is gold-filled, which means it has a thicker layer of gold than a piece that is gold-plated. This cuff is especially nice because the construction allows it to fit small- to medium-size wrists. Please note that dark areas in the photos are only reflections from the camera. Several Vogue ads for this company’s flexible bracelets in other styles date this cuff from about 1946-1947. Scroll down to see a sterling necklace in the same style by Walter Lampl as well as a gold-filled snake-chain necklace by Forstner.

Gold-tone costume jewelry of the 1940s with intact finishes is really hard to find. This piece is well preserved because it is gold-filled, rather than just plated. A Dorson’s ad in Vogue for other designs made with the same materials said their stones were hand-set. Please note that dark areas in the photos are reflections of the camera.

At 7 1/2" by 3/8", this bracelet is longer and wider than most made in this style in the 1920s.
