About 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, crystal and richly-colored-glass 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.

  • Vintage Bakelite brooch with diamantes
    Close-up view of brooch front
    USD$195.00

    Green Bakelite Brooch with Diamantés

    , ,
    This vintage Bakelite brooch is fashioned from a half-dome in light green. When jewelry makers embraced early plastics they no longer needed to imitate gemstones, so the range of colors was limitless. This 1930s piece is embellished with five rings of diamantés. This versatile Art Deco jewel is fun to wear and probably European in origin. It may be Galalith, an alternative plastic often used there. Although the pin is bent, it works very well. I love the mix of materials and the choice of green!
