Amethyst Bangle Bracelet
Outside: 2 3/4" x 2 1/4" x 3/8"; inside circumference: 6 3/4"
This amethyst bangle bracelet from the 1920s has faceted, square-cut glass stones channel-set in sterling silver with engraved edges. This piece is wider and more substantial than its contemporaries. In fact, its size, weight, design, and components are nearly identical to one of my own Lady Gloria Hinged Bracelets by Wachenheimer Brothers. This piece is unsigned on the tongue (where Diamonbar bangles were marked), so I can’t be sure. Either way, this bracelet is so beautiful and well-made that you won’t be disappointed. It was made for a slim wrist, so please note the inside circumference (6 3/4″) and check your wrist size before purchasing this piece.

Vintage Necklaces, 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis vintage amethyst bead necklace never goes out of style. It is a long (31”) strand of graduating faceted, deep-purple glass beads with crystal disk spacers. This piece has been professionally restrung without a clasp and has substantial weight. Made in the 1920s, it was designed to be worn as a single, long strand, to compliment the drop-waist fashion of the day. As an alternative, the third photo shows the necklace worn doubled, with the aid of a device called a pearl extender clasp (shown in the fifth photo). I will include one with this purchase. This necklace looks fabulous with another long 1920s necklace, which is also weighty, that is shown in the last photo.

This substantial piece has just been professionally restrung with knots and no clasp. Although the necklace was designed to be worn as a single long (35″) strand, you can wear it doubled if you have a slim neck. A pearl extender clasp (see the seventh photo), which makes the doubling possible, will be included with this necklace. This jewel looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see it and a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.$ 295
