Vintage Art Deco Jewelry

This vintage Art Deco jewelry is characterized by clean lines, geometric forms, stylized Egyptian themes – e.g., scarabs, pharaohs, and hieroglyphics – fruit salads, abstract designs, and dramatic, contrasting colors. The pendant earrings, long and short necklaces, brooches, bracelets, dress clips, and double-clip brooches in this collection were made with faux pearls, clear- crystal and richly-colored stones and beads, shimmery stones (marcasites and diamanté), early plastics, and enamel. If you think you need to dress like a character from The Great Gatsby to wear this stunning jewelry, think again: its appeal has endured for nearly a century. And the quality of these 1920s-1930s European and North American makers is unsurpassed. Read more about fashion and jewelry in the 1920s and 1930s.

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

    Amethyst & Filigree Drop Art Deco Earrings

    , ,

    Faceted pale-amethyst-glass teardrops with silver-tone filigree caps are the focal point of these stunning and elegant 1920s Art Deco earrings. A faceted diamanté sits at the ear lobe, and tiny pale amethyst glass and crystal stones as well as marcasites dot the space in between. The only flaw in these long and hard-to-find earrings is that the tiny stones are different in each earring, but who cares? In my opinion, it’s the pale amethyst drop that counts! These screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. You could wear these earrings with several amethyst Art Deco pieces shown below – scroll down to see them.

    This 1920s necklace of faceted amethyst glass beads never goes out of style. It has been professionally restrung without a clasp, has substantial weight and was designed to be worn as a single long (31″) strand.

    Black & White Bakelite Art Deco Dangle Earrings

    , ,

    These Art Deco dangle earrings are an example of the whimsical type of jewelry that could be produced when the early plastics, such as Bakelite and Galalith, became available. Each earring features a trio of black-and-white Bakelite (?) cubes dangling from chrome bars and links. Two cubes are the same length, while the third is longer. These all-original earrings have ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears. The findings are unmarked, so I don’t know the metal content. Scroll down to see an equally fun matching bracelet.
