    Chrysoprase & Crystal Dangling Earrings

    , ,

    Two faceted, oblong chrysoprase (glass?) stones with a faceted, round collet-set crystal at the bottom form these classic 1920s 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 ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. Note that although the open-back bottom crystals appear dark in the first photo, they are, in fact, clear and sparkly (as in the second photo). Scroll down to see a number of chrysoprase pieces that would compliment these earrings. This apple-green color is fabulous for women who look best in warm hues.

    Chrysoprase & Crystal Chicklet-Style German Necklace

    , ,

    Although unmarked, the design and quality of this early-1930s 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 jewel.

    Onyx, Marcasite & Sterling 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 slim sterling 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 silver 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 this versatile pair.

    Onyx & Crystal 1920s Bar Brooch

    , ,

    Faceted, rectangular onyx-glass and crystal stones form the body of this Art Deco bar brooch. Each end has a faceted, onyx-glass triangle. The silver-tone metal setting has cut-outs, creating a checkered pattern with the stones. They are all open-back, and the workmanship is superb. The trombone clasp and unusual design make me think this brooch is European in origin. I also think the setting is sterling silver, but the mark is unreadable.

This vibrant Art Deco piece, in a striking color combination, closes with an older concealed clasp that looks like a narrow tube.

    Chrysoprase, Marcasite & Sterling German Brooch

    , ,

    This Art Deco marcasite brooch has three faceted chrysoprase (glass?) stones set in sterling silver. It 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 jewel 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. This green is lovely on women who look best in warm colors.
