    Chrysoprase & Crystal Art Deco Earrings

    , ,

    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.

    Onyx & Crystal Art Deco Bar Brooch

    , ,

    Rectangular, faceted onyx-glass and crystal stones with faceted onyx-glass triangles on the ends form this cut-out Art Deco bar brooch. The pattern creates a checkered effect. The stones are all open-back, and the workmanship is superb. This piece closes with a trombone clasp, which makes me think the brooch is European in origin. I think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable.

    Chrysoprase, Marcasite & Sterling German Art Deco Brooch

    , ,

    This Art Deco marcasite brooch with three faceted chrysoprase (glass?) stones set in sterling silver exhibits typical German construction and their aesthetic of the 1920s-1930s. The 935 mark refers to a higher silver content than the sterling standard, which is 925 parts per 1000 – not uncommon in German pieces of the era. This brooch was in my personal collection and was among the first pieces I bought when I focused on Art Deco jewelry. You can wear this petite brooch at the throat of a blouse or on the collar of a jacket to great effect. Scroll down to see Art Deco chrysoprase earrings that look lovely with this piece.

    Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling Art Deco Earrings by Wachenheimer Bros.

    , ,

    These onyx, marcasite and sterling silver Art Deco pendant earrings are part of a line the maker called Wachenheimer Real Stone Jewelry. They feature a faceted, onyx (or glass?) stone set with a top border of marcasites and suspended from a marcasite-encrusted sterling slim bar. A square-cut, prong-set onyx stone sits at the earlobe. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. By the late 1920s, the company had moved away from their Diamonbar sterling and crystal flexible bracelets and bangles to this line, but the maker’s high-quality is still present in these lovely earrings. Scroll down to see a selection of onyx Art Deco pieces to wear with these versatile earrings.

    Chrysoprase & Crystal Chicklet-Style German Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    Although unmarked, the design and quality of this 1920s-1930s Art Deco chrysoprase (glass?) and crystal chicklet-style necklace make me think it was made in Germany. The faceting of the crystals is superb, and the mountings of the stones are highly-decorated. The silver-tone metal may be sterling, although the stone frames are unmarked. This gorgeous piece from my personal collection closes with an older-style spring-ring clasp. Scroll down to see Art Deco earrings and bracelets to wear with this necklace.
