    Vintage carnelian bracelet in sterling silver
    Wachenheimer Bros.' carnelian & sterling bracelet
    USD$345.00

    Carnelian Bracelet in Sterling by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,
    This vintage carnelian bracelet features six round, polished stones prong-set on round, open-back frames. In between each is a decorative link with a smaller stone. The setting is sterling silver. This piece was part of the company’s Wachenheimer Real Stone Jewelry line introduced in the late-1920s. The style is quite a departure from their Diamonbar pieces but no less lovely. This bracelet, which closes with a concealed clasp, was part of my personal collection. Carnelian is a rich, warm, and versatile color. Scroll down to see a German-made carnelian bracelet from the same era.

    Chrysoprase & Sterling Drop Earrings by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,
    These chrysoprase and sterling drop earrings by Wachenheimer Bros. have square and oblong stones. By the end of the 1920s, the company was marketing Wachenheimer Real Stone Jewelry with their company name instead of the Diamonbar trademark. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. Scroll down to see other chrysoprase Art Deco pieces to wear with these lovely earrings.

    Silver filigree bangle with citrine center stone
    Filigree & citrine 1920s hinged bracelet
    USD$195.00

    Citrine & Silver Filigree Bangle

    , ,
    This silver filigree bangle with intricately-pierced metal has a beautifully faceted, cushion-cut citrine-glass stone as its centerpiece. Wholesale jewelry catalogs of the 1920s described the finish on these bracelets as “permanent white” (i.e., they were designed to not tarnish). In fact, the piece is probably plated with chromium. This hinged bracelet has diamanté accents. Although most have darkened, their condition does not detract from the beauty of this bracelet. This jewel closes with a concealed clasp and safety chain. A dainty, elegant, and well-made addition to any jewelry wardrobe. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 3/8") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.

The setting is sterling silver with a hidden clasp. The beautifully-faceted lemon-yellow stones in decorative collars and the etched ends of the vertical links illustrate this maker’s attention to detail. This lovely piece is in remarkable condition for its age. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist. Please note the bracelet length (6 1/2") and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. Scroll down to see the perfect necklace to wear with this jewel.

  • Cobalt blue necklace with rondelles
    Front of blue glass & rondelle necklace
    USD$295.00

    Cobalt Blue Necklace with Rondelles

    , ,
    This cobalt blue necklace has poured-glass beads alternating with rondelles, which are all shaped like half-moons. The elements are strung on a chain that ends with a diamante-embellished screw-barrel clasp. This French Art Deco beauty is from my personal collection. The chain has stretched a bit over time – a typical issue with pieces from this era. This jewel is perfect for women who look best in cool colors. Simple diamond studs complete the look.

    Crystal & Silver Necklace

    , ,
    This crystal and silver necklace has stones that are faceted on top and have pointed bottoms. Each is set in an etched silver-tone-metal frame. This stunning, well-made 1920s Art Deco classic is elegant and versatile to wear – it goes with everything! The original necklace was extremely short, so my expert jeweler added rings at each end to extend it and replaced the spring-ring clasp.

  • Vintage red glass bead necklace with rondelles
    Deep-red melon-bead long necklace
    USD$495.00

    Ruby Glass Bead Necklace with Rondelles

    , ,
    This vintage red glass bead necklace with rondelles is probably from France. The uniformly-sized beads were molded in the shape of melons, a popular style in the 1920s-1930s. Wear this piece as a single long strand of 33 inches, or double it with a necklace shortener or ribbon tied at the back. Either way, you’ll love the deep-red color and the substantial quality of these beads. This necklace from my personal collection has been professionally restrung. Just add simple diamond studs to complete your look.
