    Amethyst Chicklet-style 1920s Necklace

    , ,

    This 1920s Art Deco necklace of square-cut faceted amethyst glass stones set in silver-tone frames with a delicate chain may be sterling, but it is unmarked. It closes with a filigree fish-hook clasp. Please note that the color saturation of the crystals is even ― any differences in the photos are due to lighting.

    Aquamarine & Sterling Line Bracelet

    , ,

    This vintage aquamarine bracelet has square-cut glass stones channel set in rhodium-plated sterling silver links with engraved edges. It is an excellent example of an Art Deco line bracelet of the 1920s-1930s. Usually worn in multiples, these bracelets were the forerunners of today’s tennis bracelets but were called flexible bracelets in their era. This one has substantial weight and width, as well as excellent construction and articulation. The concealed clasp has a safety catch. This bracelet is signed, but I cannot identify the maker. Because of its simple, classic lines, this bracelet coordinates well with more elaborate pieces from other eras.

    Crystal & Sterling Art Deco-Style Necklace

    , ,

    This sterling silver crystal necklace is a 1950s revival of the Art Deco chicklet. These faceted crystal chicklets are set at an angle, adding to the sparkle and uniqueness of this piece. This necklace closes with a concealed clasp; its style tells me this piece was produced in Japan in the early 1950s. After the war, Japan produced a lot of high-quality costume jewelry for export. Chicklet-style earrings and a lovely bangle that coordinate beautifully with this necklace are available – scroll down to take a look. This beautiful necklace added sparkle on the runway during Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.

    Crystal Chicklet Dangling 1920s Earrings

    , ,

    Three faceted square-cut crystal chicklets dangle in these charming 1920s Art Deco earrings. The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) each have a diamond-shaped crystal chicklet at the earlobe. The mountings and findings may be sterling silver, but only the screw-backs are marked. Because the dangling chicklets are separated by rings, these earrings have lots of movement and light reflection. These earrings look great with many Art Deco pieces in my boutique – scroll down to see a selection.

    Diamanté & Bead Flower 1950s Earrings by Miriam Haskell

    , ,

    With large, faceted, single round diamanté centers and petals formed from tiny clear and grey-glass bi-color beads wired together, these flower-shaped ear clips are much more beautiful than the photos convey. Designed by Frank Hess, these earrings features the style and workmanship that characterize Miriam Haskell pieces. The use of French ear clips dates this pair to no earlier than the late-1940s, but I think the style is more 1950s. You can wear these earrings for a special occasion or with everyday attire – they go with everything!

    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. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets.
