- ArchivesThree carnelian beads are connected by a delicate chain in these 1920s Art Deco drop earrings from Germany. The construction and materials are typical of German workmanship of the era. The original screw-backs were signed "STERLING GERMANY" and were converted to sterling posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings were part of my personal collection. I have two Art Deco carnelian bracelets, also from Germany, that coordinate well with this piece. You could also wear these earrings with Art Deco pieces that feature stones in addition to carnelian – scroll down to see a selection.USD$195.00
- ArchivesThis carnelian bracelet has faceted glass stones set in rectangular panels. Each is outlined with alternating faux onyx and marcasites. Even the connecting links are adorned. This sterling silver piece is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the 1920s-1930s. Based on its width, I'm dating this jewel to the 1920s, when bracelets were narrow and often worn in multiples. This piece has a concealed clasp with a safety catch and was part of my personal collection.USD$345.00
