  • Black vintage Bakelite earrings with diamanté-inlaid pendants
    Art Deco black Bakelite earrings
    $ 195

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Dangle Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage Bakelite earrings are unusual. The pendants in black Bakelite (or other plastic from the 1920s) are embellished with a silver painted design and inlaid diamanté. A sterling chain connects each drop to a diamanté-centered black bead designed to adorn the earlobe. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. Light-weight and easy to wear, this fun pair works well for off-duty and business-casual wear. Scroll down to see a selection of Art Deco bracelets to wear with these jewels.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Flexible Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    Vintage Bakelite jewelry as beautiful as this German flexible bracelet from the 1930s is hard to find. It has vertical links of diamanté alternating with black Bakelite. The stones in this piece are relatively large – only four to each flat-top link. This Art Deco bracelet closes with a concealed clasp. Because one of the markings is "Patented" (an English word stamped by a German maker), I think this bracelet was intended for export. Scroll down to see some necklaces and earrings that complement this sophisticated, yet easy-to-wear piece.

  • Vintage Bakelite necklace with diamanté links
    Front of black Bakelite Machine Age necklace
    $ 295

    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. Scroll down to see the perfect bracelet to wear with it.

  • Machine Age necklace with Bakelite & diamanté
    German Machine Age necklace
    $ 395

    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. Scroll down to see a bracelet and pair of earrings by the same maker that complement this piece.

  • Bakelite brooch with diamanté accents
    Curved links with channel-set stones
    $ 175

    Black Bakelite Brooch with Diamanté

    , ,
    This black Bakelite brooch has a curved centerpiece topped with a collet-set diamanté. Each end features three rows of slightly-curved links with channel-set stones. The components are attached to a rhodium-plated metal back. This piece closes with a trombone clasp. The design and construction remind me of pieces created by German makers in the 1930s. Although the channel-set stones have aged a bit, this brooch is still a stunner! Scroll down to see some great earrings and bracelets to wear with this piece.

    , ,
    This floral brooch features a cluster of black glass beads sitting atop silver-tone metal leaves paved in diamanté.

  • Vintage tank track brooch with black diamanté

    $ 195

    Black Diamanté Vintage Tank Track Brooch by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    This vintage tank track brooch is an unusual application of this classic Machine Age pattern. Schreiber & Hiller have made it even more distinctive by using black diamanté channel-set in slender, slightly curved links on the outside and a double-row of smaller, slightly lighter stones inside. The difference in colors is very subtle. At 3 ¼” long, this piece is a fabulous and versatile example of the era. This brooch closes with a trombone clasp.

  • Vintage rose brooch and earrings by Marcel Boucher
    Black enamel & diamante rose brooch
    $ 275

    Black Enamel & Diamanté ‘Rose of Seville’ Brooch & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , , ,
    In this vintage rose brooch and earrings set, Boucher crafted a lovely three-dimensional flower in rhodium-plated metal with black enamel and round diamanté. The stem of the rose is adorned with baguettes. The brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp. The ear clips are just as well-designed. This incredibly-detailed 1950s set deserves its elegant name: Rose of Seville. Wear the pieces together (in the style of the decade) or separately to make your outfit memorable. A perfect set for those who look best in cool colors.

  • Enamel brooch with diamanté by DeRosa
    Double clip enamel & diamante brooch by DeRosa
    $ 395

    Black Enamel, Diamanté & Sterling Double Clip Brooch by DeRosa

    , ,
    This enamel brooch with diamanté embellishments in a sterling silver setting was made by Ralph DeRosa in the 1950s. The detailed design is a fine example of this exceptional maker's work. This piece can be worn as a single brooch or as separate dress clips. (The double-prong fastener works well with heavier fabrics, such as wool dresses or blazers.) The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a sterling silver or white-gold chain (neither is included). I've used necklaces from my own jewelry box to show you how beautiful they look with the clip and how versatile this jewel is. I would wear faux or real diamond studs with this gorgeous piece.

    Black Suede Handbag with Chrome

    This black suede handbag is probably a 1930s European design. Nearly square in shape with a fixed, top handle, this bag has chrome trim around the frame, a faille lining, and what appears to be the original mirror and change purse. Each of these accessories has a separate inside pocket. While the slender shape doesn’t lend itself to today’s daytime requirements, this beautiful bag is a lovely evening accessory.

    Blue & Green Bead 4-Strand 1950s Necklace by Hattie Carnegie

  • Vintage drop earrings with blue glass and diamanté
    Blue art glass and diamanté vintage drop earrings
    $ 225

    Blue Art Glass & Diamanté Drop Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage drop earrings feature blue art-glass teardrops with faint striations and filigree caps. They fall from links of baguettes and round diamanté set in silver-tone metal. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These unusual Art Deco earrings are a lovely shade of blue. Although the diamanté are ageing, the blue stones – which are the star attraction – are perfect. I bought these earrings for my personal collection, but I'm reluctantly offering them for sale. They're the perfect adornment for a woman who looks best in cool colors.

    This vintage glass bead necklace has clusters of blown-glass beads in shades of blue wound together with wire and linked with clear glass rings.
