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 piece looks great with the Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace, also weighty, shown in the last photo. Scroll down to see a selection of coordinating bracelets and earrings.

    A faceted clear crystal ball hangs from a fine sterling silver chain in these dainty 1920s Art Deco earrings. The all-original screw-backs (which can be modified for pierced ears) have a framed glass stone at the earlobe. These stones appear to have darkened only because the attachment of the screw-back mechanisms does not allow the light to pass through the stones. These earrings go with everything! Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with this pair.

    Amethyst Bead Long Art Deco Necklace

    , ,

    This 1920s necklace of faceted amethyst glass beads 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 fourth photo), which I will include with this piece. This necklace looks fabulous with my Amethyst & Crystal Bead Art Deco Necklace, which is also weighty, shown in the last photo. You could wear one or both necklaces with any of my amethyst Art Deco bracelets – scroll down to see a selection.

    Faceted, colorless crystal beads dangle from filigree settings in these 1920s Art Deco earrings. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings coordinate well with any of my Art Deco necklaces with clear crystals only or with a combination of clear and colored crystals. Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with these versatile earrings.

    Amethyst Bangle Bracelet

    , ,

    This amethyst bangle bracelet from the 1920s has faceted, square-cut 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.
