This 1920s necklace of faceted, amethyst-glass beads with crystal disk spacers never goes out of style. It has been professionally restrung without a clasp, has substantial weight and was designed to be worn as a single, long (31″) strand. 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. Scroll down to see it and a selection of amethyst Art Deco bracelets to wear with this jewel.

    Amethyst Bangle Bracelet

    , ,
    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. Scroll down to see some lovely complementary Art Deco earrings and necklaces.

    Amethyst & Crystal Bead Long 1920s Necklace

    , ,
    This 1920s necklace of alternating amethyst-glass and crystal beads was designed to complement the long-waisted, slim flapper silhouette but is equally fashionable today. 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.
