    Amethyst & Crystal Art Deco Necklace

    , ,
    Faceted, long amethyst glass stones are separated by trios of faceted crystals collet-set in decorative mounts in this classic 1920s Art Deco necklace. The stones are all open-back to allow for the maximum reflection of light. The settings for the three crystals closest to the spring-ring clasp have plain edges – they were added to lengthen the original 14.5 inch necklace. This necklace may be sterling, but it is unmarked (except for the clasp).  The gorgeous necklace was part of my personal collection. You can wear this lovely piece with several of my Art Deco earrings and bracelets – scroll down to see a selection.

    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long Art Deco Necklace

    , ,
    This 1920s necklace of alternating amethyst glass and crystal beads was designed to complement the long-waisted, slim flapper silhouette but is equally fashionable today. This substantial piece has just been professionally restrung with knots and no clasp. Although the necklace was designed to be worn as a single long (35″) strand, you can wear it doubled if you have a slim neck. A pearl extender clasp (see the seventh photo), which makes the doubling possible, will be included with this necklace. This piece looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.

    Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace

    , ,
    This 1920s necklace of faceted amethyst glass beads never goes out of style. It has been professionally restrung without a clasp, has substantial weight and was designed to be worn as a single long (31") strand. As an alternative, the third photo shows the necklace worn doubled, with the aid of a device called a pearl extender clasp (shown in the fourth photo), which I will include with this piece. This necklace looks fabulous with my Amethyst & Crystal Bead Art Deco Necklace, which is also weighty, shown in the last photo. You could wear one or both necklaces with any of my amethyst Art Deco bracelets – scroll down to see a selection.

    Black & Red Galalith & Chrome German Machine Age Necklace

    This German Machine Age necklace has as its centerpiece a row of three arrow-shaped black Galalith plaques covered with chrome triangle panels, with a fourth plaque as a drop and a red Galalith cylindrical bead on both sides. The chain links and findings are chrome.  This piece reminds me of the work of Jakob Bengel.  I had four links removed from this necklace because I bought it for myself, but I saved the pieces for the future owner.

    Blue & Cream Carved Galalith Art Deco Necklace

    , ,
    Plastic beads that were molded to simulate carving were very popular in the Art Deco era. What sets this 1930s necklace apart is the colors -- dark blue on cream. This combination and the design are lovely, and the different shapes of the beads add interest. Even the screw-in clasp forms a bead. I'm not sure what type of early plastic this piece is (possibly Galalith, the French equivalent of Bakelite) – it's light, wonderful and fun to wear in any case.
