    Blue Bead 2-Strand 1950s Choker by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    The glass beads in this 1950s 2-strand choker by Hattie Carnegie look like blue from a distance, but they are actually pale blue, white, and clear all in the same bead! In between the beads are twisted gold-tone spacers. The necklace has an adjustable hook-and-tail clasp. Scroll down to see a pair of Carnegie earrings that coordinates well with this piece.

    Blue Blown Glass Bead Necklace with Rings

    , ,
    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. Although the spring-ring clasp doesn’t provide a clue to the necklace’s origin, I believe it was made in Europe. This piece was recently restrung by my expert jeweler. This wreath-like jewel from my personal collection is a lovely topping to a round-neck garment and the perfect colors for women who dress in a cool palette.

    Blue Glass & Chrome 1930s Fringe Necklace

    , ,
    Cobalt-blue glass tubes and chrome balls dangle from this 1930s fringe necklace. The chrome links and fringe elements have a Machine-Age look and give this piece lots of movement! Some of the blue glass tubes have minor chips, but they are not noticeable when this beauty is worn. This chrome necklace, which closes with an old style spring-ring clasp, was part of my personal collection. I am reluctantly offering it to a new home. A perfect adornment for a woman who looks best in cool colors.

    Brown & Golden Topaz Pendant Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,
    These brown and gold topaz earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli feature multiple stones in a gold-tone setting. At the top, a large, faceted, round golden-topaz-glass stone is positioned to adorn your earlobe. This stone is linked to a smaller, faceted, round brown-topaz-glass stone, which is connected to the setting of the pendant. This focal point – the pendant – is a large, faceted, open-back, brown-topaz-glass stone in an ornate setting. Its top is crowned with diamanté; the bottom rests on a scroll accented with another brown topaz. Please note that the dark striations in the large stones shown by my camera are not visible when the earrings are worn. Though not signed with the maker’s name, these ear clips are marked with the utility patent for one type of finding Schiaparelli used. The design of these pendants is undoubtedly hers – scroll down to see the matching signed bracelet. Both are perfect for those who look best in warm colors.

    Brown Bead Dangling Brooch by Miriam Haskell

    , ,
    This wood bead brooch is typical of the type of whimsical pieces designed by Frank Hess for Miriam Haskell during World War II. At the top, the coffee-bean-shaped beads form flower petals that surround small round beads with gilt-metal caps. They are all hand-sewn onto a pierced, flat metal foundation. From there, a riot of beads dangle from gilt-metal links attached to three braided-silk cords. This brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is in remarkable condition and fun to wear!

    Camphor Glass & Chrysoprase Bead Sautoir

    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.

    Camphor Glass Earrings with Diamanté & Onyx

    ,
    These camphor glass earrings were made in the Art Deco style and were very difficult to photograph in the hanging position. The camphor glass is more opaque than the first picture suggests; the second is a more accurate depiction. The pendants are embellished with diamanté triangles and rectangular onyx-glass stones. The ear wires with lever-backs for pierced ears are original to the earrings and unmarked. I have seen similar earrings in Ginger Moro’s book (European Designer Jewelry, p. 49) described as being made from vintage components. From my perspective, the date of their manufacture doesn’t detract from the elegance and glamour these earrings provide the wearer. Scroll down to see the same design in lapis. Both pairs were in my personal collection.

    Carnelian Ring German 1920s Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage carnelian earrings feature rings and beads suspended from sterling silver chain. At 3 1/8” in length, these fabulous German Art Deco creations are fun to wear. I love the way the chain goes around the rings. This "life-saver" motif was popular in 1920s jewelry. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings are from my personal collection. Carnelian is a beautiful and versatile color for women who look best in warm hues. Scroll down to see a complementary bracelet, also German-made.

    Carnelian, Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling German Bracelet

    , ,
    This marcasite bracelet has faceted carnelian and onyx glass stones set in sterling silver panels in an Art Deco design. This piece is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the 1920s-1930s. Based on its width, I'm dating this bracelet to the 1920s, when bracelets were narrow and worn in multiples. This piece has a concealed clasp with a safety catch and was part of my personal collection.
