    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long 1920s 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 jewel looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see it and a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.

    Amethyst Bead Long 1920s Necklace

    , ,
    This vintage amethyst bead necklace never goes out of style. It is a long (31”) strand of graduating faceted, deep-purple glass beads with crystal disk spacers. This piece has been professionally restrung without a clasp and has substantial weight. Made in the 1920s, it was designed to be worn as a single, long strand, to compliment the drop-waist fashion of the day. 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 fifth photo). I will include one with this purchase. This necklace looks fabulous with another long 1920s necklace, which is also weighty, that is shown in the last photo.

    Baroque Pearl & Amethyst Bead 1970s Long Necklace by Miriam Haskell

    ,
    This Miriam Haskell pearl necklace is a beautiful example of this maker’s work. The long strand of faux cream baroque pearls and pearl bead spacers is interspersed with faceted amethyst glass beads. The pearls are textured and somewhat varying in size. Wear this piece as a single long strand or doubled, depending on your neckline and the look you want to create. Although I usually prefer earlier vintage jewels, this beautiful necklace was part of my personal collection because it is so elegant, timeless and versatile. The wear to the nacre of some pearls does not detract in any way from the lovely appearance of this piece.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté German Choker

    , ,
    This vintage Bakelite necklace is probably from Germany. It has curved links of black Bakelite alternating with slightly larger curved links of channel-set diamanté. The components are threaded on a chain with metal spacers between each link. When laid out on a table, the necklace retains a slightly curved shape. The back of one of the Bakelite links has a small chip (shown in the last photo), but the appearance and integrity of the piece have not been compromised. This necklace was made for a slim neck, so please note the length (14 3/4") and check your neck size before purchasing this piece. The look of this necklace is Machine Age and very classy.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Machine Age Necklace by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    I love the design of this Machine Age necklace! Six curved links set with diamanté alternate with black Bakelite links with roof-shaped (pointed) tops. Because the jeweled links are curved, the centerpiece follows the curve of your neck instead of laying out in a straight line. A scroll chain with a spring-ring-clasp completes this elegant and easy-to-wear necklace that I always enjoyed.

    Blue & Cream Carved Galalith 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.

    This plaque necklace made in Germany in the 1930s has tapered, curved links of diamanté on either side of a black Bakelite disk.

    Diamanté & Gold Snake Chain 1950s Coro Necklace

    , ,
    This Coro necklace features gold-plated fretwork embellished with rows of gold-ended baguettes as its centerpiece, which reminds me of a cornucopia. A pear-shaped diamanté adorns the tail of the hook-and-tail closure of the snake chain. This piece is another great example of the work Adolph Katz produced for Coro’s high-end line. What’s interesting is that this piece appears in an October 1, 1953 Vogue ad with the following copy:  “excitingly beautiful as Paris by night … Vendome by Coro“.  (Vendome later became another one of the company’s high-end lines.) Also of interest is the difference of the clasp on the necklace versus that shown on the design patent.

    Diamanté 1950s Choker with Buckle by Mazer Bros.

    , ,
    A raised, fixed buckle adorned with diamanté in a unique assortment of shapes and sizes is the focal point on this early-1950s choker by Mazer Bros. The remaining necklace has a line of emerald-cut diamanté, each set in its own rhodium-plated link. Both ends finish with a square-cut stone, and the fold-over clasp is jeweled. This necklace was difficult to photograph because it contours to the neck and, therefore, does not lay flat. This choker was made for a slim neck. Please note the necklace length (14 1/2") and measure your neck before purchasing. The matching bracelet is also available – scroll down to see it.

    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.

    Ruby Chicklet 3-Strand Necklace

    , ,
    This vintage multi strand necklace is a variation of the chicklet-style so popular in the 1920s-1930s. Three rows of faceted, ruby-glass chicklets drape in the front, with two larger faceted ruby-glass triangles joining the three rows to the rest of the piece. The chicklets are open-back; the triangles are not. This unusual version of the classic chicklet in hard-to-find red closes with a spring-ring clasp. This necklace is probably Czech in origin. What a great piece for a round or scooped neckline!

    Sterling 1940s Flexible Choker by Walter Lampl

    This sterling silver flexible choker by Walter Lampl was the height of style in the mid- to late-1940s. The simplicity of this piece makes it wearable with almost anything. This well-constructed necklace closes with a concealed clasp. This choker was made for a slim neck, even though the construction allows for a bit of stretch. Please note the length (14 1/2"), and measure your neck before making this purchase. This necklace was advertised in the May 1947 issue of The Jewelers' Circular - Keystone (a trade publication); the gold-filled and sterling silver versions each cost $4.50, at a time when the average family income in the U.S. about $50/week. I wrote a blog post about two stars who wore this style of necklace in 1940s films – read it here. Cate Blanchett wore a gold version in the 2015 movie Carol. Scroll down to see a gold flexible bracelet by another maker.
