    Diamanté Link German Art Deco Bracelet

    , ,

    This diamanté silver bracelet has two rows of long, slender, slightly-curved links of channel-set stones. Each link is trapezoid in shape. A single row of slimmer, short, pointed-top connecting links is in the middle. The setting is rhodium-plated white metal. This bracelet closes with a concealed clasp and safety chain. This piece is unsigned, but it reminds me of the work of the German company Schreiber & Hiller. I think this bracelet was made in the 1930s, but it could have been made around 1950, when German companies were re-emerging after the war. Scroll down to see some complementary pieces.

    Diamanté German Tank Track Bracelet

    , ,

    This German bracelet features four rows of slightly curved, tapered links set with diamanté. The rhodium-plated setting closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. Although this piece is unsigned, the tank track pattern and the bracelet’s construction remind me of pieces made by German companies in the 1930s. This bracelet may have been made in the early 1950s, when the German companies were re-establishing themselves after the war. Scroll down to see coordinating pieces.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté 1930s Earrings by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,

    At the top of these 1930s earrings is a link with engraved sides that holds seven diamanté. At the bottom is another diamanté -set link flanked by black Bakelite on three sides. In the middle is a single stone. Each earring has a small chip of Bakelite at the bottom, but that minor flaw in no way detracts from their beauty. The original ear clips were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler.

    Black Bakelite & Diamanté Flexible Bracelet by Schreiber & Hiller

    , ,

    Vintage Bakelite jewelry as beautiful as this German flexible bracelet from the 1930s is hard to find. It has vertical links of diamanté alternating with black Bakelite. The stones in this piece are relatively large – only four to each flat-top link. This Art Deco bracelet closes with a concealed clasp. Because one of the markings is “Patented” (an English word stamped by a German maker), I think this bracelet was intended for export. Scroll down to see some necklaces and earrings that complement this sophisticated, yet easy-to-wear piece.
