    These faux sapphire earrings create a lot of movement with their half-moon stones suspended on silver chains with a dangling stone in the middle.

    Sapphire Lava Rock & Amethyst 1950s Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,
    This Schiaparelli brooch is one of those pieces that should come with instructions for how to wear it. So I’m showing this exquisite 1950s creation in three different positions, hoping that at least one of them will appeal to you. Or you may think of a better one! This incredible brooch has two large sapphire-blue lava rocks in dog-tooth prongs embellished with sapphires and amethysts. The complementary glass stones are round and navette in shape. The lava rocks have an incredible iridescence (like a fire within), and the color combination is delicious. The setting is silver-tone metal with a roll-over safety clasp. This gorgeous statement piece is Schiaparelli at her best!

    Sapphire Melon Bead Art Deco Necklace

    , ,
    Sapphire-blue-glass beads molded in the shape of melons form this lovely necklace. It raises a simple strand of beads to new heights! Exactly when this piece was made is uncertain, but I associate melon beads with the Art Deco era. This necklace was professionally restrung with knots by my expert jeweler after these photos were taken. This piece closes with a filigree, gold-tone concealed clasp.

    Sapphire Poured Glass Earrings by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    These blue sapphire costume earrings feature translucent poured glass in a delicately-detailed gold-tone setting. The design is timeless and versatile! These 1950s ear clips were one of the Hattie Carnegie creations chosen by the designer to walk the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. He paired them with an Art Deco necklace in a similar blue worn by a model in a black-and-white houndstooth evening gown. I confess that I was both surprised and delighted with this choice, and the audience was definitely pleased. Although that necklace is no longer available, scroll down to see a similar piece.

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Gold Spiral 1950s Duette by Coro

    , ,
    Gold-plated spirals are adorned with sapphire-glass baguettes and pavé centers on this 1950s Duette, Coro's name for their double-clip brooch. It is like a "two for one"! Wear it as a brooch or as separate fur clips. The latter work well as embellishments on heavier fabrics, such as wool blazers and dresses. The all-diamanté version of this piece appeared in a 1950 Coro ad in Life with the slogan "the perfect jewel of a gift" and with the price of $10.50! (In 1950, the average U.S. family income was $81.48 a week.) You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name.

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling 1940s Reinad Brooch & Earrings

    , ,
    This Reinad brooch with matching earrings feature rose-gold-washed sterling silver set with large, faceted, triangular sapphire-glass stones and diamanté accents. This set is a wonderful example of the Retro Modern style of the 1940s. I couldn’t decide if the brooch should be worn horizontally or vertically until I saw Anne Baxter wearing one like it in the 1946 movie Angel on my Shoulder. Hers was perfectly placed in the vertical position at the base of her V-neckline. She even wore the matching earrings. The pin has a roll-over safety clasp, and the earrings are screw-backs. I’ve included a photo of the brooch in the horizontal position, so you can decide if you prefer it that way. A similar piece was shown in a 1945 wholesaler’s catalog. The page was entitled “New Pink Gold Finish on Sterling Silver — Styled by Master Craftsmen” (who were not named). The brooch was $28.50 retail, and the earrings were $13.50, or $42.00 for the set. (While I don’t have income statistics for the mid-1940s, to put these prices in perspective, the U.S. government reported that by 1950, the average American household’s weekly income was about $81.)

As with all their pieces from this period, this one is well-constructed from the finest materials. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. The colors of this brooch makes it perfect for a woman who looks best in cool colors. Scroll down to see another version in warm hues.

    Floral bouquets were a popular theme for Trifari and other costume jewelry makers during WWII. This design is horizontal in format, with faceted, oval sapphire-glass flowers, diamanté leaves, and silver stems. The setting is rhodium-plated sterling silver. The roll-over safety clasp has been replaced by my expert jeweler.

    Sapphire, Diamanté & Sterling Filigree Art Deco Bracelet by Granbery

    , ,
    This sterling silver filigree bracelet by Granbery is a fine example of a style that was very popular in the 1920s. With its sapphire-glass baguettes and diamanté accents, this piece has the same construction and appearance as its fine jewelry counterpart. The excellent articulation and clasp with safety catch are the hallmarks of high-quality. Although one of the baguettes has a small surface chip, my expert jeweler has confirmed that the stone is firmly set. The bracelet looks perfect when worn. Granbery advertised their flexible bracelets in the June 1925 issue of The Keystone, a jewelry trade publication. Scroll down to see a selection of sapphire Art Deco necklaces and earrings to wear with this lovely piece.

    Sapphire, Onyx & Citrine Bead 1950s Earrings by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    A cluster of sapphire, onyx, and chartreuse glass beads form these ear clips by Hattie Carnegie. A prong-set, faceted citrine glass stone surrounded by tiny onyx beads complete the design. Except for the black beads, all are coated with aurora borealis, which adds iridescence. This vibrant and unique late-1950s color combination is set in gold-tone metal. These colorful earrings are a versatile addition to any jewelry wardrobe. They remind me of colors worn in the early episodes of Mad Men.

    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.
