    Amethyst & Crystal Art Deco Necklace

    , ,
    Faceted, long amethyst glass stones are separated by trios of faceted crystals collet-set in decorative mounts in this classic 1920s Art Deco necklace. The stones are all open-back to allow for the maximum reflection of light. The settings for the three crystals closest to the spring-ring clasp have plain edges – they were added to lengthen the original 14.5 inch necklace. This necklace may be sterling, but it is unmarked (except for the clasp).  The gorgeous necklace was part of my personal collection. You can wear this lovely piece with several of my Art Deco earrings and bracelets – scroll down to see a selection.

    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 & Diamanté Art Deco Bracelet

    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.

    Amethyst & Peridot Flower 1950s Brooch by Alice Caviness

    , ,
    Shades of amethyst and peridot navettes and round rhinestones are layered like petals in this flower-shaped 1950s Alice Caviness brooch. A lovely art glass stone forms the center of the flower. The setting is gold-tone with a roll-over safety clasp. I think this designer's work is often overlooked.

    Amethyst 1940s Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,
    These classic and classy emerald-cut, amethyst glass late-1940s earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli are Retro Modern in design but really hard to photograph. The stones are open back (without any green, as the photos may suggest) in a silver-tone setting. The actual color is a deep amethyst. These earrings are clip-backs.  I have a faux pearl bracelet with a similar clasp, also by Schiaparelli, which I will include with this purchase. (The clasp of the bracelet is lovely, but the quality of the pearls is disappointing and the strands need re-stringing -- hence, the no-cost offer.)

    Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace

    , ,
    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. As an alternative, the third photo shows the necklace worn doubled, with the aid of a device called a pearl extender clasp (shown in the fourth photo), which I will include with this piece. This necklace looks fabulous with my Amethyst & Crystal Bead Art Deco Necklace, which is also weighty, shown in the last photo. You could wear one or both necklaces with any of my amethyst Art Deco bracelets – scroll down to see a selection.

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling 1940s Brooch or Pair of Fur Clips by Coro

    , ,
    Two rows of amethyst glass stones separated by two rows of diamanté sit at the center of diamanté-studded folds of rose gold-plated sterling silver that form this 1940s Duette by Coro. This piece, which was created for Corocraft, the company's high-end line, can be worn as a brooch or as separate fur clips. (Duette is Coro's name for their double-clip brooch.) My camera picked up two stones that are a different shade of purple, but this difference cannot be seen by the naked eye. You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro's name.

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling Bouquet 1940s Brooch by Adolph Katz for Coro

    , ,
    This stunning amethyst, diamanté and vermeil sterling silver bouquet brooch by Adolph Katz for CoroCraft, Coro's high-end line, is a wonderful example of the Retro Modern style. This piece has four pavé stems topped with amethyst glass stones and gathered through the center of a flower with diamanté-rimmed gold-plated sterling silver petals. I have photographed the piece in the horizontal position, as it appears in the patent drawing, but you could also wear it vertically (as shown in the second photo). This brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is rich in contrasting colors. This piece was in my personal collection. Wear it on the lapel of a blazer, and I guarantee you'll be noticed!
