Excellent (minor wear to carnelian stones and some pointed backs of clear crystals)
"STERLING" on clasp
Three square carnelian stones set at a 45-degree angle are held in place with diamanté-encrustedleaves in this extraordinary Art Deco necklace. Collet-set crystal stones finish the piece. The metal may be sterling silver, but only the spring-ring clasp is marked. The high quality of the design and construction of this fabulous necklace is readily apparent. This piece is from my personal collection. Scroll down to see carnelian earrings and a bracelet to wear with this necklace.
Faceted carnelian glass, onyx glass and marcasites are set in sterling silver panels in this 1930s Art Deco bracelet. It is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the period. This bracelet, which has a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with a safety catch, was part of my personal collection.
Three 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.
