Diamanté German Chevron Link Bracelet
6 7/8" x 3/8"
This chevron link bracelet has diamantés channel-set in tapered, curved links. This pattern is quintessential Art Deco. The rhodium-plated setting closes with a concealed clasp and safety catch. The design and construction of this piece remind me of the work of German makers in the 1930s. Although this jewel is unsigned, I think it is one of their creations.

- Vintage Necklaces, 1950s Jewelry, Unsigned JewelryThis vintage bib necklace has a 3 ½”-wide centerpiece of tapered, curved links of channel-set diamanté and sprays of single stones. The setting is rhodium-plated white metal. An adjustable bar link chain with a spring-ring clasp completes the piece. This type of adjustable clasp – instead of the North American-style J-hook – was used by many German jewelry makers in the 1950s. The design and construction of this piece remind me of the work of Schreiber & Hiller, but this necklace is unmarked. Nonetheless, I think it was German-made.
