- ArchivesThis 1930s marcasite and onyx bracelet from Germany features faceted, rectangular stones alternating with embellished sterling links. I have always found many German Art Deco pieces especially appealing because of their high-quality design and construction. Bracelets like this one are extremely versatile for both day and evening wear. This piece was one of the first German Art Deco jewels that joined my personal collection decades ago. I was thrilled when it was chosen to walk the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.

You'll also see two pairs of complementary Art Deco pendant earrings.USD$395.00
- ArchivesThis German Art Deco bracelet from my personal collection is one of the most spectacular pieces I've ever had! It has double rows of faceted, oblong carnelian stones separated by triple rows of faceted, oblong crystals. Because substantial sterling silver frames hold the stones (which may be glass), this bracelet has a double concealed clasp with safety chain. Carnelian is a beautiful color for women who look best in warm hues. A striking and extraordinary piece, this jewel definitely makes a statement!USD$895.00
- ArchivesThis carnelian bracelet has faceted glass stones set in rectangular panels. Each is outlined with alternating faux onyx and marcasites. Even the connecting links are adorned. This sterling silver piece is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the 1920s-1930s. Based on its width, I'm dating this jewel to the 1920s, when bracelets were narrow and often worn in multiples. This piece has a concealed clasp with a safety catch and was part of my personal collection.USD$345.00
