  • Flower-shaped diamante earrings by Miriam Haskell

    Diamanté & Bead Flower 1950s Earrings by Miriam Haskell

    , ,
    These flower-shaped diamante earrings are much more beautiful than the photos convey. Six petals formed from tiny clear- and grey-glass bi-color beads wired together surround each large, faceted, round diamanté center. Designed by Frank Hess, this elegant pair features the style and workmanship that characterize Miriam Haskell pieces. The use of French ear clips dates these earrings to no earlier than the late-1940s, but I think the style is more 1950s. You can wear this pair for a special occasion or with everyday attire – they go with everything! They even sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019!

    Diamanté & Sterling Earrings by Eisenberg

    , ,
    These late-1940s earrings by Eisenberg look like flowers in a vase. They have faceted oval and round diamanté set in rhodium-plated sterling silver with screw-backs. These earrings faces each other, so they will frame your face to perfection. This pair features all of the beauty and high-quality of this maker's creations. In fact, these earrings were chosen to walk the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. The model wore them with a pair of bracelets made in Germany in the 1930s – scroll down to see them. Surprised at the combination? It rocked!

    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.

    $ 195

    Emerald, Diamanté & Rose Vermeil Sterling Flower 1940s Brooch & Earrings Set by Coro

    , , ,
    These Coro screw back earrings and brooch in a matching flower motif are lovely. The tall (3 3/4″) brooch has two large flowers with curved petals surrounding round emerald-glass stones, each encircled with a row of diamanté. Two smaller, simpler flowers without petals complete the bouquet. The settings, stems, and ribbon that tie them together are rose-gold-washed sterling silver. The screw-back earrings are the same size and design as the large flowers. This Retro Modern set was made for Coro’s high-end line. Warm-toned, somewhat playful jewels!

    Emerald, Sapphire & Golden Topaz 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hattie Carnegie

    , , ,
    Layers of emerald, sapphire and golden topaz glass stones are combined with black metal flower petals in this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hattie Carnegie. Some of the stones appear teal in color, depending on the light. This set is a fine example of her imaginative color combinations, favored floral motifs, and complexity of design. What a knock-out! The settings are japanned metal, and the brooch has a roll-over safety clasp. When worn, the ear clips face each other and beautifully frame your face. The last photo shows how fantastic this brooch looks on a dress sash. Although the brooch has a ring designed to allow the piece to be worn as a pendant, my expert jeweler advises that the ring is not sturdy and cannot be replaced without damaging the back of the brooch. I don't see this point as a problem – I'm just mentioning it in the interest of full disclosure.

    Gemstone & Rose Vermeil Sterling Calla Lily Pin by Coro

    This calla lily pin from the 1940s has a rose-gold-plated sterling silver ribbon tied in a three-looped bow. Three stems of calla lilies with a navette centers of amethyst, ruby, and peridot glass sit on top. Tiny pink tourmaline, sapphire, and diamanté navettes tie the stems together. The pin closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Although the drawing in the design patent shows this brooch with the flowers facing down, I prefer them facing up, reaching for the sky! The photos show both positions, so you can decide. This gorgeous Retro Modern design by Adolph Katz for Coro’s high-end line was also made with all citrine flowers – scroll down to see that version.

    Gold & Diamanté Flower Brooch by Otis

    This gold-plated flower brooch is the only Otis piece I and my friend and co-author Robin Deutsch have ever seen with this finish. Though petite, this graceful sterling silver brooch with diamanté is charming. The finish has a few dark spots, but overall it looks much better with the naked eye than my camera indicates.

    Golden Topaz & Vermeil Sterling Flower 1940s Brooch by Coro

    Oval, faceted golden-topaz glass stones form the flower on this graceful, large gold-plated sterling silver brooch by Coro. The tilt of the blossom and the furled leaves make this piece look as though it is blowing in the wind. Joan Crawford wore a similar brooch at the throat of her blouse in a scene in Mildred Pierce.

    Golden Topaz & Vermeil Sterling Flower Earrings

    These graceful earrings are so beautiful and well-made that I'm surprised they are unsigned. They feature curled sterling silver leaves surrounding a faceted, oval golden-topaz glass center. The metal has a hint of a warm gold wash, which was popular in the 1940s. These elegant screw-back earrings are timeless and great for both day and evening wear.

    Green Bead & Chrome 1930s Necklace

    , ,
    A large, faceted spring-green-glass bead capped with textured metal shaped like flower petals is the centerpiece of this early-1930s necklace. Textured chrome balls along with green-glass beads (two with caps, two without) continue up the textured chain to the spring-ring clasp. This light-weight Art Deco piece is probably European in origin. An unusual and delightful piece for a woman who looks best in warm colors to wear in any season.

    This pearl flower brooch by Miriam Haskell features a trio that forms a semi-circle. Each flower has a grey pearl center and engraved silver-tone petals.

    Jade Art Glass, Gemstone & Pearl 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Hobé

    , , ,
    Large jade-art-glass nuggets set in gold-plated metal are the focal point of this 1950s brooch and earrings set by Hobé. The oval-shaped brooch has two nuggets surrounded by faux pearls and glass stones in amethyst, sapphire, and citrine. These embellishments are in various shapes and sizes. An overlay of gold-plated filigree flowers with tiny sapphire centers complete the brooch. It closes with a roll-over safety clap. The ear clips each have one jade nugget with a semi-circle of the same colorful stones. The earrings face each other, so they will frame your face to perfection. The combination of elements and the complexity of design make this set very special. It's a great example of Hobé's '50s Glam look.

    Lapis Panel 1930s Pendant Earrings

    , ,
    These lapis blue earrings are formed from molded-glass panels that look like carved gemstones. The flower motif in the blue-glass pendants is present in the silver-tone metal components that connect the pendant to the earring top. These all-original, unusual earrings have screw-backs, but they can be modified for pierced ears. Because these Art Deco earrings are 2″ long and bold (the glass panels are 3/4-inch squares), I would wear these drops with only an Art Deco bracelet – scroll down to see a selection. This versatile color is perfect for those who look best in cool hues.

    Pearl & Blown Glass Flower French 1950s Earrings

    , ,
    Clusters of tiny faux pearls with blown-glass flowers and leaves form these 1950s ear clips. The design and style of the beads remind me of the work of the French maker Louis Rousselet, although the earring backs are not the same as those he typically used. However, the findings I'm familiar with would have been too small for this creation. Please note that although these earrings are not mirror images, the lack of symmetry – which is not unusual in hand-strung pieces – does not detract from their lovely appearance. What a great choice for a bride!

    Pearl, Diamanté & Gold Flower 1950s Brooch/Pendant & Earrings Set by Marcel Boucher

    , , , ,
    The brooch in this 1950s set by Marcel Boucher features a trio of heart-shaped blossoms. Their gold-plated fretwork has swirled pavé edges that embrace champagne-colored faux pearls. The ear clips are single hearts. The brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, can be worn as a pendant by inserting the pin stem through the loops attached to the snake chain. Pretty clever, eh! While the pendant appears slightly off-center on the chain, its position was fixed at manufacture, as the loops are attached to the chain. Please note that this necklace (which measures 14 3/8") was made for a slim neck, but you could easily add a chain extender.

    Pink Tourmaline & Sterling Flower 1940s Hobé Brooches

    This pair of Hobé brooches is delicate and lovely. Each is a flower with a deep-pink tourmaline (almost fuchsia) center. The sterling petals on one side are furled; those on the other side feature a beautiful open-work design that is known as fretwork. You can wear the pair together on the shoulder of a dress or jacket, or on either side of a collar. What a lovely adornment for a bride's hair! These brooches were hand-made. Although they’re marked “DESIGN PAT’D”, I have been unable to identify a design patent that looks like them.
