These square-cut aquamarine glass stones are channel set in rhodium-plated sterling silver links with engraved edges, forming an excellent example of an Art Deco line bracelet of the 1920s-1930s. Usually worn in multiples, these bracelets were the forerunners of today’s tennis bracelets but were called flexible bracelets in their era. This one has substantial weight and width, as well as excellent construction and articulation. The hidden tongue-in-groove clasp has a safety catch. This bracelet is signed, but I cannot identify the maker. You can wear this lovely piece with an early Miriam Haskell brooch with aquamarine beads — scroll down to see it.
Marquise-shaped diamanté flowers sit atop the layers of aquamarine glass beads that form this oval 1940s brooch by Frank Hess for Miriam Haskell. The beads are wired onto a pierced plastic back with a simple C-clasp closure. This World War II-era piece is a winner! It looks lovely when worn with one of my Art Deco aquamarine bracelets -- scroll down to see them.
