Faceted, long amethyst glass stones are separated by trios of faceted crystals collet-set in decorative mounts in this classic 1920s Art Deco necklace. The stones are all open-back to allow for the maximum reflection of light. The settings for the three crystals closest to the spring-ring clasp have plain edges – they were added to lengthen the original 14.5 inch necklace. This necklace may be sterling, but it is unmarked (except for the clasp). This gorgeous piece was part of my personal collection. Scroll down to see a selection of Art Deco earrings and bracelets to wear with this lovely necklace.

    Crystal Chicklet Dangling Earrings

    , ,
    These dangling crystal earrings from the 1920s are formed by three faceted, square-cut chicklets, with a diamond-shaped stone set at the earlobe. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. The mountings and findings may be sterling silver, but only the screw-backs are marked. Because the chicklets are separated by rings, these earrings have lots of movement and light reflection. These Art Deco jewels sparkled on the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019.
