  • 1940s Corocraft brooch with amethyst & diamante
    1943 Adolph Katz-designed Corocraft brooch
    USD$395.00

    Amethyst, Diamanté & Vermeil Bouquet Brooch

    , ,
    This Corocraft brooch is just stunning! This Adolph Katz-designed piece has four pavé stems topped with faceted, oval amethyst-glass stones that are gathered through the center of a flower with diamanté-rimmed gold-plated sterling silver petals. The gold-plating on the flower is perfect – the difference in tone you see is from the camera’s reflection. What an outstanding example of the Retro Modern style! I have photographed the brooch 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 jewel, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is rich in contrasting colors and was in my personal collection. Wear it on the lapel of a blazer, and I guarantee you’ll be noticed!

    USD$395.00

    Aquamarine, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling Coro Leaf Pin

    , ,
    This stunning Coro leaf pin in rose-gold-washed sterling silver has pavé along one curved edge. Layered on top are three stems topped with flowers formed by diamanté leaves and aquamarine-glass-stone centers. This spectacular 1940s piece was designed by Adolph Katz for Coro Craft, the company's high-end line. This three-dimensional Retro Modern brooch is in amazing condition, has a roll-over safety clasp, and is perfect for women who look best in warm colors. This piece was part of my personal collection – I am reluctantly offering it to a new home. Note that any color variations in metal are only camera reflections.

  • Aquamarine brooch in vermeil sterling
    Close-up view of cushion-cut aquamarine
    USD$445.00

    Aquamarine, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling Flower Brooch by Mazer Bros.

    , ,
    This aquamarine brooch by Mazer Bros. is a fine example of the Retro Modern style. Tall and graceful, this substantial, stylized flower features a large, faceted cushion-cut glass stone as its focal point. The gold-washed, sterling silver setting is further embellished with four, faceted oval-cut stones along with pavé-accented gold swirls. This pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Pieces of this size with a gold-plated finish often don’t survive as well as this brooch has. But costume jewelry was well-made in the 1940s by companies of this maker’s stature. Note that any color variations in metal seen in the photos are only camera reflections.

    USD$225.00

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Art Deco Brooch

    , ,
    This Art Deco Bakelite brooch is not for the faint-hearted! From the 1930s, this large black jewel has ornate hand-carving accented with faceted, square-cut and round diamanté. The stones, which were expertly replaced by the previous owner, are a sparkly contrast to the dark color. At 3 ¾” long, this brooch is a real statement piece. It closes with a roll-over safety clasp.

  • Schreiner Brooch & Earrings Set in Brown Topaz with Citrine
    Brown topaz & citrine brooch in layered gold-tone setting
    USD$475.00

    Brown Topaz & Citrine 1950s Schreiner Brooch & Earrings Set

    , , , ,
    This Shreiner brooch, the centerpiece of this 1950s set, features huge, multi-faceted, oval brown-topaz glass stones. They are accented with layers of citrine and clear inverted glass stones, all in elaborate gold-tone settings. Even if the pieces weren't signed, the gorgeous glass, inverted stones, ornate settings, and donut-hole ear clips scream SCHREINER! This great color combination is stunning in any season. The earrings face each other, to frame your face. The dome-shaped brooch, which has a roll-over safety clasp, can also be worn as a pendant. The last photo shows that option on a black rubber cord, although you may prefer a gold chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (just like the one in the photo) is included with this purchase.

    Another view of McClelland Barclay 2-tone scroll brooch
    USD$295.00

    Citrine & Diamanté Scroll Brooch by McClelland Barclay

    , ,
    This McClelland Barclay vintage brooch has two layers. The bottom is a furled, gold-plated scroll. The top features faceted, emerald-cut citrine-glass stones, baguettes, and round diamanté, all set in connected, rhodium-plated frames that form a spiral. The intricate construction, as seen on the back, along with the use of two tones of metal are hallmarks of the designer. This brooch has a roll-over safety clasp and can be worn in any direction you choose. Notice that the maker’s name (Rice-Weiner) does not appear on McClelland Barclay-designed pieces.

    Citrine & Sterling Brooch & Earrings Set

    , , ,
    This citrine jewelry set by Hobé is just stunning! The tall brooch features flowers in shades of citrine glass atop sterling silver stems, surrounded by leaves and buds. They are all wrapped in ribbon and tied with a bow. The earring centers of citrine glass are surrounded by furled petals. The brooch has a rollover safety clasp; the earrings are screw-backs. Pieces by this maker were all hand-made and very three-dimensional. This set is extraordinary! Scroll down to see a 1940s sterling bracelet with citrine flowers by the same maker.

  • Schiaparelli earrings and brooch set with citrine & pearls in gold
    Schiaparelli brooch with dentelle faceted citrine
    USD$395.00

    Citrine, Pearl & Gold 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , , , ,
    This Schiaparelli earrings and brooch set from the 1950s features a large citrine glass stone surrounded by tiny pearls in an elaborate, antiqued, gold-plated setting. Notice how the faceting of each citrine ― known as a dentelle ― forms an eight-pointed star design. Schiaparelli frequently used this cut of glass stone in her pieces. The pin has a roll-over safety clasp. You can see the utility patent for the ear clip here, below the names Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford.

The screw-backs are sterling silver and can be modified for pierced ears. These beautiful and unusual earrings sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. Add some sparkle to your jewelry wardrobe!

    Diamanté & Gold Leaf Brooch by Hattie Carnegie

    , ,
    This 1950s gold leaf brooch features ropes of yellow metal that form a trio of leaves adorned with diamanté. This graceful piece by Hattie Carnegie has lots of sparkle. It goes with nearly everything and closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Wear your own yellow gold hoop earrings, or a pair of diamond studs or hoops to complete the look. Or put on your gold bangle bracelet if you have one. A lovely and elegant jewel for those who love diamonds and look best in warm colors.

  • Coro necklace with gold & diamanté centerpiece
    Corocraft gold necklace by Adolph Katz
    USD$275.00

    Diamanté & Gold Snake Chain 1950s Coro Necklace

    , ,
    This Coro necklace features gold-plated fretwork embellished with rows of gold-ended baguettes as its centerpiece, which reminds me of a cornucopia. A pear-shaped diamanté adorns the tail of the hook-and-tail closure of the snake chain. This piece is another great example of the work Adolph Katz produced for Coro’s high-end line. What’s interesting is that this piece appears in an October 1, 1953 Vogue ad with the following copy:  “excitingly beautiful as Paris by night … Vendome by Coro“.  (Vendome later became another one of the company’s high-end lines.) Also of interest is the difference of the clasp on the necklace versus that shown on the design patent.

  • Vintage starfish brooch & earrings set
    Dazzling starfish brooch by Alice Caviness
    USD$395.00

    Diamanté & Gold Starfish Brooch by Alice Caviness

    , , ,
    This vintage starfish brooch is bold and dazzling. The aurora borealis diamantés in the gold-tone setting take on the color of the metal, catch the light, and seem to dance. The brooch has a roll-over safety clasp. Although women in the 1950s typically wore matching sets of jewelry, you don't have to do that. Just add gold studs or hoops. Consider these ear clips each shaped like one of the creature's arms a bonus. This jewel is versatile and guaranteed to get you noticed! What an imaginative adornment for a bride's hair or veil!

  • Vintage dangle earrings in silver with diamante

    USD$395.00

    Diamanté & Silver Vintage Dangle Earrings

    , ,
    These vintage dangle earrings are diamanté-encrusted with faceted, square-cut stones at the earlobe and as the focal point in the drop. Long and luxurious, these all-original Art Deco pendants have gold-colored ear wires with shepherd hooks for pierced ears. I am unaware of their metal content. I think these beautiful earrings are European in origin. Though stamped "SILVER" on the earring backs, I don't think the settings are sterling. Pieces like these are difficult to photograph, and the earrings are much brighter and more sparkly than the photos indicate. This glamorous pair walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets.

  • Vintage Lapel Watch by Pennino in Art Deco design
    Art Deco design on front of clasp
    USD$595.00

    Diamanté & Sterling 1930s Lapel Watch by Pennino Bros.

    , ,
    This amazing lapel watch by Pennino is the ultimate in Art Deco design, with pavé and baguettes set in rhodium-plated sterling silver. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. And the best part is that the watch works! It has been cleaned by my expert watchmaker. The watch is attached to the brooch upside down, so you can read the time when you are wearing this piece. The numbers on the watch face are also SO Deco in design, and the original blue hour, minute and second hands are present. What an unusual and fantastic piece!

  • Flower dress clip in diamanté & sterling
    Close-up view of blossoms & ribbons
    USD$395.00

    Diamanté & Sterling Flower Dress Clip

    , ,
    This flower dress clip has prong-set, large diamanté blossoms complimented with pavé ribbons. Substantial, yet graceful, this sterling silver pin is from the 1940s. Although it is unsigned, the high-quality design and construction, hand-set stones, and style of this piece make me believe that it was created by Fallon & Kappel. That firm designed and manufactured all of Eisenberg's jewelry from 1943-1948, the years the company used sterling. This clip has a hinged, double-prong fastener, which works well with weighty fabrics. This bold and sparkly jewel would really stand out on the lapel or shoulder of a jacket or coat. What a glorious statement!

    Diamanté & Sterling Leaf Eisenberg Dress Clip

    , ,
    This Eisenberg dress clip from the late-1940s is substantial in weight and size. It has two layers: square-cut diamanté flowers with a pavé stem that sit atop a sterling silver leaf embellished with additional diamanté. The cut-outs on the leaf add a graceful effect. The hinged, double-prong fastener works well with weighty fabrics. You could wear this jewel on the shoulder or lapel of a dress, jacket or coat, and own any room you enter! What a knockout!

  • art deco fashion jewelry – honeycomb bracelet
    Honeycomb bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller
    USD$395.00

    Diamanté 5-row Honeycomb Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,
    Art Deco fashion jewelry made in the 1930s in Germany was unlike anything produced by North American companies. The foundation of this maker’s designs is an oblong link that holds channel-set stones. With this bracelet, they took this concept to another level. These flat, rhodium-plated links with three diamanté form a honeycomb pattern – a variation of the tank track. A large stone is in the center, with a smaller one on each side. This bracelet has five rows; it closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. Scroll down to see another bracelet by this maker in the same pattern with three rows. Both sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019! The model wore them with 1950s diamanté Eisenberg earrings, also shown below.

  • Double clip brooch by Mazer Bros.

    USD$395.00

    Diamanté Double Clip Brooch by Mazer Bros.

    , ,
    This double clip brooch by Mazer Brothers features sparkly round and baguette diamanté in a late-Art Deco design. What’s interesting about this piece is that the patent for the brooch mechanism that connects the dress clips was issued to Marcel Boucher in 1939, two years after he started his own company. He filed the patent application when he was working for Mazer Brothers, but the patent wasn’t assigned to them when it was issued. (You can see the utility patent here, below Boucher's name.) I was surprised to find the “MAZER” mark on this piece from the technical perspective but certainly not from an aesthetic point of view. Because this jewel was created with the Boucher mechanism, I think it was made while he still worked for the firm. Wear this lovely piece as a brooch or as separate dress clips.

  • Wedding dress brooch by Frank Hess

    USD$395.00

    Diamanté Floral Brooch by Miriam Haskell

    , ,
    Whether you’re looking for a wedding dress brooch or something unique and elegant for every day, this sparkly jewel is for you. It is identical to the “central motif” of a necklace shown in the Gordon & Pamfiloff book on this maker. There the centerpiece is described as “silver metal leaves edged with rose montées and two large clear rhinestones surrounded by smaller rhinestones”. While the necklace is much more elaborate, this Frank Hess-designed 1950s piece is perfect for today, any time of day! I bought this brooch for myself, but I am now reluctantly offering it to a new home.

    Diamanté Floral Double Clip Brooch

    , ,
    This geometric diamanté-encrusted Art Deco piece can be worn as a brooch or as two separate dress clips. The photos show a third option: one clip worn as a pendant on a black rubber cord; you may prefer to use a white gold or silver chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (which is shown in the photo) is included with this purchase. The setting is rhodium-plated base metal; the brooch has a roll-over safety clasp. What's curious about this piece is its origin: although it is marked "PRO. PAT. 864999", I cannot identify the country. Scroll down to see several complementary bracelets.

    Diamanté French Art Deco Dress Clips or Brooch

    , ,
    These Art Deco dress clips from France are paved in diamanté set in rhodium-plated metal with cut-outs that enhance the design. The clips can be worn together as a brooch. Because the design is symmetrical, I like to wear this type of clip as a pendant on a chain or cord. The last two photos show this option: one with a sterling chain from my jewelry box (not included); the other with a 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord (included with this purchase).

  • German flexible bracelet with diamante

    USD$345.00

    Diamanté German Flexible Bracelet

    , ,
    This German flexible bracelet features curved, rhodium-plated links with channel-set diamanté. Its design and construction remind me of other pieces made in Germany in the 1930s and 1950. A distinctive element of this one is the use of a small disk between each link. This bracelet is wider and longer than most I’ve seen from these decades. Although this piece has a maker’s mark, I cannot identify the company. Scroll down to see a necklace by the same maker as well as an unsigned one with the same construction.
