This 1930s brooch by the German maker Schreiber & Hiller reminds me of a bolt of lightning, a popular theme in Machine Age jewelry of that decade. This piece is formed by seven flat-top links that are bent to form a sort of zig-zag shape. Long (3 ¼”) and lean, this unusual brooch closes with a trombone clasp. An elegant and unusual adornment for a jacket lapel. Scroll down to see coordinating bracelets.

    Diamanté 5-row Honeycomb Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,

    Art Deco fashion jewelry made in the 1930s in Germany was unlike anything produced by North American companies. The foundation of this maker’s designs is an oblong link that holds channel-set stones. With this bracelet, they took this concept to another level. These flat, rhodium-plated links with three diamanté form a honeycomb pattern. A large stone is in the center, with a smaller one on each side. This bracelet has five rows; it closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. Scroll down to see another bracelet by this maker in the same pattern with three rows. Both sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019! The model wore them with 1950s diamanté Eisenberg earrings, also shown below.

    Diamanté 1950s Expansion Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,

    This expansion bracelet is unlike any you’ve ever seen! Four rows of rhodium-plated curved-top links set with diamanté stretch to allow you to put on the bracelet – it has no clasp. What’s amazing is that the mechanism for stretching the piece – a series of springs – is concealed. The last photo shows part of the British utility patent for this construction. This bracelet is the only piece in this group with the ‘SIMEX’ trademark. I can’t figure out how to tell you the size of this piece other than how it fits me. My wrist is 6 ¾”, and the bracelet fits me fine. It stretches to the diameter of the widest part of my hand – 8 ½” – that’s required to put it on. Scroll down to see complementary necklaces.
