    The slender, barrel-shaped beads in this camphor glass necklace are flanked by small, round chrysoprase beads. Each trio is connected with tubular white-metal links that form a Y. At the bottom is an inverted V-shaped white-metal element that is embellished with marcasites and that holds five rows of fringe. This lovely 1920s sautoir is lightweight. It closes with a box clasp and safety catch. This wonderful Art Deco jewel – which I believe originated in Europe – is from my personal collection.

    , ,
    This chrysoprase green necklace has rectangular-shaped stones that alternate with square crystals. All are mounted on linked silver-tone frames, in the style of Art Deco chicklet necklaces.

  • Statement choker necklace with red, black, green & diamanté disks
    Front view of necklace w/faceted, colorful disks
    USD$245.00

    Chrysoprase, Onyx, & Ruby Disk Choker with Rondelles

    , ,
    This statement choker necklace features faceted, opaque chrysoprase-, onyx- and ruby-glass disks and rondelles. The components are strung on metal chain. The necklace closes with a screw-in clasp formed by two of the disks. Based on the construction of this piece, I think it is European in origin. As often happens with necklaces made like this one, the chain has stretched. I don’t recommend having a jeweler cut the excess – just keep it at the back. This multi-colored, versatile necklace can be worn with many Art Deco jewels, depending on the color you wish to emphasize — scroll down to see a selection. Or wear your real or faux diamond studs to complete the look.

    Citrine & Crystal 1920s Tiered Necklace

    , ,
    The design and construction of this tiered necklace, a variation on the 1920s chicklet-style, is first class. Golden yellow, square-cut glass stones alternate with oblong crystals to form the necklace and tiered centerpiece. Round dangling citrine-glass stones add the movement that was so essential in the Art Deco era. All of the stones are faceted and mounted in decorated, silver-tone metal. The construction makes me think this piece was made in Europe. This divine jewel, which I initially purchased for myself, closes with a spring-ring clasp.

    Variation of chicklet necklace w/parallelograms
    USD$245.00

    Citrine & Crystal Chicklet Necklace

    , ,
    This chicklet necklace is a variation of the typical Art Deco style. Instead of square-cut stones, this one is fashioned from deep-citrine-glass and crystals in the shape of parallelograms. The stones are set in unmarked silver-tone frames. Some of the crystals have tiny corner chips, but they are not visible when the necklace is worn. The combination of colors and the shape of the stones make this jewel unique and versatile. Scroll down to see Art Deco pieces that coordinate well with this shade of citrine and with crystal.

    This vintage citrine necklace is a classic and well-made Art Deco chicklet design. It features square-cut, faceted glass stones set in sterling frames with a spring-ring clasp.

This stunning, well-made 1920s Art Deco classic is elegant and versatile to wear – it goes with everything!

  • Snake chain necklace with diamante
    Front of German snake chain necklace
    USD$325.00

    Diamanté German Snake Chain Necklace

    , ,
    This snake chain necklace from Germany has a curved centerpiece with a Machine Age-look. The white-metal links with channel-set stones are separated by trios of flat-metal links. All are connected with flat disks at the top and bottom (probably to cover a connecting chain). At each end is a triangle-shaped element formed by two long and one short link with channel-set stones. This piece closes with a spring-ring clasp. Although I had always associated snake chains with the 1940s, I just learned that they were first introduced in 1850. This necklace has a maker’s mark, but I have been unable to identify the company. Although this necklace was made for a slim neck (the length is 14 1/2"), you could add a chain extender if needed. The absence of an adjustable closure makes me think this piece was made before the 1950s.

  • Vintage bib necklace with diamanté spray
    1950s German bib necklace
    USD$345.00

    Diamanté Vintage Bib Necklace

    , ,
    This vintage bib necklace has a 3 ½”-wide centerpiece of tapered, curved links of channel-set diamanté and sprays of single stones. The setting is rhodium-plated white metal. An adjustable bar link chain with a spring-ring clasp completes the piece. This type of adjustable clasp – instead of the North American-style J-hook – was used by many German jewelry makers in the 1950s. The design and construction of this piece remind me of the work of Schreiber & Hiller, but this necklace is unmarked. Nonetheless, I think it was German-made. A perfect jewel for a woman who looks best in cool colors! Scroll down to see some coordinating bracelets.

  • Triangle necklace with alternating emerald and crystal links
    Front of emerald & crystal triangle necklace
    USD$395.00

    Emerald & Crystal Triangle Necklace

    , ,
    This triangle necklace from the late-1920s has molded emerald-glass stones alternating with faceted crystals, all set in white-metal frames. Molded glass from this period was used to simulate the carved gemstones made popular by fine jewelers such as Cartier. This piece is Art Deco costume jewelry at its best – the use of strong contrasting colors and a geometric shape. This stunning necklace from my personal collection closes with a spring-ring clasp. Although a few of the crystal triangles have tiny chips, they aren't visible when this piece is worn.
