    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.

    Aquamarine & Vermeil Sterling Leaf Earrings by Pennino

    , ,

    Curled, gold-plated sterling silver leaves adorned with aquamarine-glass stones form these lively ear clips by Pennino. The leaves are the same shape and finish this maker used in a series of 1947 brooches, called Sunburst. The stone settings are the same as their Bulrush brooch and earrings set from the same year. According to Brunialti, the patent pending mark on the earrings refers to the clip mechanism. These designs were not patented. These details are just for background – these ear clips are divine!

    Black & Cream Galalith Beaded Art Deco Necklace

    This vintage bead necklace is a piece that’s especially fun for summer. It has alternating larger and smaller black beads that culminate in a centerpiece of two plaques designed to look carved and two cream-colored cones separated by a black disk. Made from an early plastic (Bakelite or Galalith?), this necklace from the 1920s to early-1930s closes with an unusual push-in clasp. This piece is from my personal collection.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Machine Age Necklace by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,

    I love the design of this Machine Age necklace! Six curved links set with diamanté alternate with black Bakelite links with roof-shaped (pointed) tops. Because the jeweled links are curved, the centerpiece follows the curve of your neck instead of laying out in a straight line. A scroll chain with a spring-ring-clasp completes this elegant and easy-to-wear necklace that I always enjoyed. Scroll down to see a bracelet and pair of earrings by the same maker that complement this piece.

    Blue & Cream Carved Galalith Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    Plastic beads that were molded to simulate carving were very popular in the Art Deco era. What sets this 1930s necklace apart is the colors — dark blue on cream. This combination and the design are lovely, and the different shapes of the beads add interest. Even the screw-in clasp forms a bead. I’m not sure what type of early plastic this piece is (possibly Galalith, the French equivalent of Bakelite) – it’s light, wonderful and fun to wear in any case.

    Blue Art Glass & Diamanté Art Deco Drop Earrings

    , ,

    These vintage drop earrings feature blue art glass stones with faint striations and filigree caps falling from links of rectangular and round diamanté set in white metal. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These unusual Art Deco earrings are a lovely shade of blue. Although the diamanté are ageing, the blue stones — which are the star attraction — are perfect. I bought these earrings for my personal collection, but I’m reluctantly offering them for sale.

    Two faceted oblong chrysoprase (glass?) stones with a faceted round collet-set crystal at the bottom form these classic 1920s Art Deco earrings. Each stone is separated by a ring link, so there’s plenty of movement here. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. I have a number of chrysoprase pieces that would compliment these earrings – scroll down to see them.

    Crystal Bangle Bracelet by H. Payton

    , ,

    This crystal bangle bracelet by H. Payton is a style that was all the rage in the 1920s. The company is best known by their PAYCO mark. Bracelets like this one were available in many colors of glass to imitate gemstones. With open-back faceted, square-cut stones to let light pass through, this piece goes with everything. It also looks great with other bangles and/or line bracelets of the era. Women typically wore multiple bracelets back then, and I confess that I’ve adopted that practice as part of my own personal style. This bracelet was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece. A few of the stones have tiny chips, and there’s a space between the stone next to the hinge and the metal (shown in the last photo).
